Stayed here for a couple of nights for a short break. Room was small, but the bed was very comfortable and the view over the river was lovely. Breakfast was pretty poor. I had scrambled eggs the first day which were over cooked - very likely done in the microwave. My husband had the full English - ok, but cheap...

Went for lunch with some friends, Tuesday afternoon 2pm, ordered but when presented with the food. The salad was brown round the edges, no excuse for this the rest of the meals were fine , service was adequate but will not be returning.

The Jolly Sailor is right on the Quay at Maldon so has a really picturesque setting. The menu is fairly standard but the quality of the food, the prices and the service are excellent. We visited as an extended family on Bank Holiday Sunday. We hadn't booked and the tables inside were full but there was plenty of room outside....
