every time i go to this pub i end up having more drinks than i intend to! excellent atmosphere especially when the bands are on , great service from the bar staff and very friendly landlord who are always joking and happy.
the garden is also great for kids as they have pet birds in the garden.
i also decided to try out the food aswell and it was delicous especially the burgers!

would highly reccomend it is an alround great pub andin my opinion better than the others in sunbury by a long shot!!

Went in to see the live music. Left after 1 pint. Would only go here again to see a band but it would have to be a blooming good band. Car park seemed to be turned into a car dealers forecourt. What's that all about?

I would have to say that i disagree with princesspea as the Jubilee actually has 2 bars so if one is closed for a private function there is ALWAYS another bar open (maybe you didn't use your common sense to try the other door)!

I myself have also visited the Jockey as have lived in Sunbury for many years and of late would have to say it is a certain type of person that visits the Jockey shall we say so if you fit that bill then it is the pub for you!

ive been to this pub about 3 times over the past year and never had a good experience so wont be going again.

didnt seem very clean and the barstaff did not seem interested in being there at all.
another time i could not gain access to the pub even though there was clearly customers inside and it was during the day, we were told by someone we noticed leaving that it was only open to people watching the football on a special channel?!?.
very unfair in my book and clearly something dodgy goin on there?!?!

lol at the comment from nickthefish agree with u there about the chelsea flags.

disagree with the gp jubilee is no way better than the jockey at least the staff in the jockey are welcoming.

a better pub than I went in last time - still fairly average though
and better than the Jockey

Nothing special but obvioulsly handy for the racing. Not much in the real ale department, more a lager place sadly. Not sure how it justifies 12 pictures ?. Two chel#ea flags hanging up which could give children nightmares...and put you off your beer so for that reason it gets a rating of precisely nothing.

Went last Friday. Very very friendly pub. Small but we certainly livened the place up and the landlord and staff were ever so welcoming I would definitely recommend this pub to others esp. if they want a nice quiet drink in peace! x

I worked here during the summer holidays in 1991(?), and remember the saloon bar being quite civilised. Sadly, it was locked shut when I turned up at 5-00 on a Friday evening. So I walked into the public bar - in a suit - and asked what bitter they sell (there being no pumps on the bar). I may as well have walked in wearing a tutu and ordered a Babycham.

I keep promising that I'll go back when the saloon's open, but so far I've not pluckedd up the courage.

went to see my friends son Dennie play the other night and not only was he great but new landlord was very nice and friendly. Staff good too. was cold in there but should have worn longer skirt!

Lovely pub since the new owner took over about a year ago, really cleaned it up and decorated it to a high standard. Great food in the week and HUGE Sunday roasts . . . . one of the best i've tasted. Staff are friendly which gives a good atmosphere. Have been there a lot recently and love my Friday nights there with the live entertainment. This pub is fast becoming my local!!!!!!

I went in here today as my other half wanted to use the toilet, but we ended up staying for lunch and it was DELICIOUS. I had a wonderful, fresh ploughmans and my boyfriend had "chilli chips" which was a plate of chips with a side bowl of chilli and three pieces of garlic bread! We will definitely go back.

i dont know of the negative comments that yappa mentioned but the jubilee is actually very nice i have been ther a few times to watch the footie as they have a large plasma screen t.v. the locals are fun and the beer is reasonable,although i have to agree that the sunday roast is very nice there.
wolfdancer - 14 Jan 2005 20:49
I have to say I'm surprised at some of the negative comments. I live near to the Jubilee but don't use it regularly. But on the occassions I have been there, it has been very pleasant. I've not had a bad pint and the locals have been friendly. Good TV for Sky sports. I would say that the only thing the previous gushing review (anonymous...not written by the Governor then!) missed out was that it is 5 minutes from the beach and has an excellent view of the Grand Canyon. No, this is a decent pub.

Well i dont know which Jubiee these people have been drinking in but the one in the picture is my local, and i find it to be one of the best pubs in Sunbury, since Dougie and Jo have been there they have been serving the best sunday roast that i have ever tasted as well as being for the most part very friendly and family orientated. Race days of coarse are very busy being the closest pub to the tracks main gate and i am sure that a few people have had to wait for a few minutes to get served but the beer is of good quality and always available, and as they say all good things come to those who wait. a lot of money has been spent on The Jubilee and i can tell you that the cleanliness,polite service,food,and all round welcome are just as good inside as the delightfull photo you see of the outside. same on you Mike for leading people astray but as the top of the page say`s comments on this site are purely the opinion of the site visitors ! I have serious doubts that you have been they dont even serve courage best there.

Mikes comments must have been offensive as they are no more!
Can't remember what he said, but I am sure he meant nothing against the staff personally. The problem in here boils down to a few key factors:
1-Poor service - Slow and unable to pour drinks properly
2- Quality - The beer itself was disgusting
3- Cleanliness - The little garden on the front actually stank of sewage.
I have nothing against old pubs with characters in by any means, in fact I love pubs like this, but this place was just really unpleasant - If it wasn't opposite the racecourse it would have been closed down years ago.

A typical local pub. There's a pool table and the music was quite load. The punters were nice and friendly. Food was ok, although not much to choose from.A good night out if you had a bunch of people. Had no trouble with the bar staff, couldn't do enough for us. I think Mikes comments are very offensive and just hope the barmaid doesn't read this.

I went to Jubilee on the last race day. The locals were very friendly, some right old characters in there. The bar staff were very pleasant especially the old one who Mike refers too. I can't believe anyone would wait half an hour for a pint. But oh well. I wouldn't hesitate to go back in.
Verity - 3 Nov 2004 14:02
My initial comment perhaps was too offensive.

I second Mikes remarks - The barmaid could not pour a pint of Shandy - Not a complicated task you would think, but she poured a quart of lemonade and then topped up the point with warm beer for half an hour.
Hence a pint of warm beer,

Although perhaps that is what you deserve for ordering a pint of Shandy.
