I booked a room at the Jolly Carter on the strength of previous good reviews on Tripadvisor. I was not dissapointed. In fact, I was delighted by every aspect of my stay. The warm welcome from Steve the manager and bar staff set a high bench mark that never dipped. My room was very clean and comfortable and, at £45/...

Good standard British pub food cooked well. The cheese pie was tasty but I do prefer a pie with proper shortcrust not just a lid I do find that a bit of a cop out but all in all very good average food and all our steaks were cooked to perfection. Would be nice to see this place back to...

Don't get me wrong , I can't complain about the £5 charge to get in on New Year's Eve, there was a singer, drink at midnight , a few fireworks and plenty of nice pie or curry to eat but the evening went by without much of a celebration, there was plenty of bar staff, one young male was a...

After enjoying several meals in the jolly carter, I was really disappointed on Sunday at the quality of our carvery. The meats were cooked to usual perfection but the veg was dry and appeared to have been stood for some time. The roasties were dry and frozen and the Yorkshire puddings were rubbery. We did wonder if the chef had...

Me and my wife stayed here on our first trip to Little Lever (Bolton) yesterday, as the pub were hosting one of our favourite bands (Glam 45), so they're brave enought o put on live music too. We booked a room a few weeks ago and it was really nice - clean, comfy and practical. Nothing flash but nothing to...

We have eaten here many times and have only ever had one bad meal which was on a Sunday afternoon, there were hardly any staff in and the kitchen was undermanned with what appered to be with just one hungover chef.
