The Jolly Sailor

An exquisite riverside country pub overlooking the Hamble Marina

Located in Lower Bursledon, near Southampton, The Jolly Sailor sits on the banks of the River Hamble adjacent to Elephant Boatyard where HMS Elephant - Nelson’s temporary flagship at the Battle of Copenhagen in 1801 - was built. The waterside terraces, jetties and decks are the perfect location to watch the busy marina activity during the summer months. But it’s not just a warm-weather pub - its cosy, traditional interior, roaring fires and extensive traditional pub menu and specials boards make it perfect for those colder winter nights too.
