The Jolly Sailor
The Jolly Sailor is one of the oldest pubs
in the Country in fact it is featured in a wills cigarette card collection
called 40 oldest inn's.
Affectionately Known as the "JOLLY" By the locals over the centuries,
it has been a place of rest and recreation for seafarers and travellers
Until about 120 years ago sea vessels used to moor right alongside the
old part of the building, until land was reclaimed allowing for cottages
adjacent to the pub to be built.
The Jolly has now been refurbished to a very high standard by the present
landlord, so much so that it has been said it now has the best accommodation
Known to be haunted it features in many Cornish books and stories.
The main beam in the Jolly has come from a French ship of the line at
the battle of Trafalgar in 1805. it was captured and renamed the HMS Indifatigble.
This ship was eventually broken up and the landlord of the time knowing
someone in the dockyard had the beam installed and it still remains in
the maim part of the bar in the Jolly Sailor.
