Set in picturesque village, located near the river
Set in the idyllic Yorkshire Village of Cawood (10 miles south of York and 4 miles west of Selby), The Jolly Sailor pub has been owned and run by married couple David Welsh and Lorraine Bishop (along with their daughter Gemma) since 2010. With a population of approximately 1550 people, Cawood is the perfect home for our village tavern where it regularly serves 6x hand pulled cask conditioned ales comprising of:
We know that not everyone has developed a taste for delicious locally crafted ale yet, so in keg, bottles and Bag in Box we also serve:
David's father served with the British Navy and was known to have a happy demeanour, he was also a life-long home brewer. Around the time when he sadly passed away, the Jolly Sailor pub became available and it seemed a fitting tribute to buy it with the intention of installing a brewery in it's grounds. The idea was to turn it into a brew pub dedicated to the production of traditional Yorkshire Ales and give Cawood, Barlby, Riccall and Selby area it's very own beer heritage.
Unfortunately for Cawood, the brewery never made it into the back of the Jolly Sailor but the area as a whole still benefitted from it's creation when it found it's way into the out-buildings of The Olympia Hotel in Selby several years later. The change of location hasn't stopped David, Lorraine and Gemma from serving it's beers behind the bar and developing a community pub for all of it's residents and visitors to enjoy.
As well as great beer, the Jolly Sailor pub also serves up entertainment in the form of a Quiz Night with sandwiches and chips on a Monday evening, a regular Bingo Night on a Wednesday and will be returning to a regular Karaoke Night on upcoming Saturday evenings. Every Monday the pool team meets and there is scope in the future to once again have it own darts team. The Jolly Sailor is back under old management and wants to get back to engaging with other community sports, activities and events.
We hope to see you there, where everybody is welcome.

A true 'Circle of Loaf'! Read more
