Voted ‘Christchurch’s Best Seafood Restaurant 2011’, ‘the jetty’ is literally perched on the water’s edge, in the grounds of the Christchurch Harbour Hotel & Spa. Alex Aitken, one of the South of England’s most respected chefs, heads up the team at this Christchurch restaurant and the food is impeccable; with fresh fish, caught and landed daily from Mudeford Quay, seafood including local oysters, lobster and shrimps and superb grills cooked in the jetty’s charcoal oven. Eating at ‘the jetty’ is all about relaxation, great food chosen from local producers and an interesting wine list – in great company.
It’s a fantastic place to gather, open a bottle of wine, take in the breath-taking views and choose something from the delicious menu.
At ‘The Jetty’ we always have mouth-watering fish landed daily on the local Quay and producers from the local area drop seasonal ingredients right to this Christchurch restaurant – it’s these local flavours that we want to celebrate with the community around us, a neighbourhood restaurant that celebrates its surroundings.
Adding to its unique style is the fact that the restaurant’s structure is completely carbon positive – built using sustainably sourced materials.
