Close to the Bacup & Rawtenstall Grammar School which the rear beer garden of this pub faces. The Jolly Sailor is a traditional pub with a slightly more spartan wooden look more associated with Irish bars, but no less of a destination for it. Indeed it has six ale pumps and although not all may be used there should be a decent selection here from local breweries. Most of the seating is geared up towards dining with larger rectangle tables perfect for eating throughout the open ground floor space. There is a separate area where a pool table exists too.
