Food & Drink

We serve food every day from noon to 9pm with a late night take away option. Our menus cover all the bases, from simple pub classics, cracking curries, our famous stone baked pizzas, fresh fish dishes, top notch roasts and tasty puddings.

Thin Based Pizzas

Hand spun by our chefs and cooked in our stone baked pizza oven. Choose from the extensive pizza menu or choose your own topping. We serve late night pizzas and a range of other great take aways till 10pm on Fridays so you can take a pizza home with you too.

Texan BBQ temptations from The Jolly Smokehouse

If you have yet to try one of our dishes from our on-site Smokehouse then you are missing out. Head Chef Nick is the master of low and slow BBQ cooking with smoked hickory, apple and maple wood infusing their flavours on our menu. Nick’s Smokehouse brisket chilli con carne is cooked for 9 hours and served up with fresh baked corn bread, delicious. Our classic prawns, ribs and BBQ pulled pork are also given the smokehouse treatment, bringing a bit of Texan home style cooking to our Norfolk shores.  

Good Honest Pub Classics

We also have a whole host of other good honest British pub classics, be sure to check out our daily specials board.

Take Away to keep everyone happy

A take away can be just the ticket after a long day enjoying the Norfolk fresh air, but everyone wants something different and there is a family stand-off over who gets to pick what take away. Sound familiar? Well everyone is a winner thanks to The Jolly Sailor ‘Take Away Menu’, come and get fish & chips, curries, burgers and pizzas all wrapped up piping hot from our kitchen to yours (or even better, to the beach!). There is sure to be something for everyone, crisis averted.

We can cater for a host of dietary needs. Some sample menus can be seen here…


No booking required (unless you are a party of 15 or more, in which case call us on 01485 210314 to bagsy your table).
Walk-ins very welcome.

Meet The Chef

Head Chef Nick Ramsay

Nick is a gentle giant. He is a Norfolk boy but has family links in Texas, which is why he is the king of low and slow cooking on The Jolly Smokehouse. He loves good honest food, that packs in flavour and doesn’t want anyone to go away hungry. So you are in for a tasty treat with generous portions from his kitchen (big enough to fill his size 15 boots).
