Everything in order as the 'Boys' and I enjoyed our Xmas meal. I had the excellent veal and not bad value at £16 by Hamble standards. The lads went for the Burger and they cleared their plates. Ruby Rustler is the sixth and final instalment in this year’s seasonal ale calendar and is a brand-new ale celebrating the doormouse and is in fine condition as all their beers are, though a pint is now approaching £4!! We love the staff and the Landlord and lady are always willing to have a chat and let me sample the mulled cider (NICE!!). No problems getting served as we approach the festive season at our regular boozer on the river.

I was in the area with my daughter, and lunchtime called. Delightful setting, and I am sure it is beautiful in summer. This winters weather meant there was no pressure on tables or service, and everybody who dealt with us was very pleasant and efficient. My daughter had a pint of orange and lemonade, allowing me to have a very nice pint of Badgers. We were both displeased with our sandwich for lunch, which in fact came in the form of a roll. Too much bread and too little filling. The price for two drinks and two sandwiches was a little over £22, which I thought would be excessive even if we had enjoyed them.

I worked out that it is almost exactly 40 years since I last visited this pub. If I will be in a position to re-visit it in another 40 years time it will only be for a beer and not for lunch.

My wife and I went here two weeks ago, when we eventually found it in the maze of roads around Burseldon. We had the table with the best view in the building, and enjoyed a superb helping of fish and chips. As we were just about the first people in that evening, service was smooth and friendly so I cannot comment on the on-going discussion about it. You have to be careful not to overdo the liquid stuff, though, with all those steps to get up again.

Just up-dating my review as I see on the state-of-play at the 'Jolly'. After I wrote to the brewery about the slow service and was told they didn't take into consideration the views expressed on web sites, they seem to have done nothing! In fact my friend the 'Cosham Connoisseur' walked out of the pub last Sunday as it was three deep at the bar and only had two person's serving. He ended up at the 'Navigator' over the marina which has plenty of parking but not the atmosphere of the 'Sailor' and that's the thing, as pictures testify nothing can take away the view. The Firsty Ferret is on and in great condition. Roll on Winter, when we can sit around the fire and moan about things in general in peace and quite.
