Had a very pleasent experience. Staff greeting very friendly. Had fish for main and my partner had steak. Both were very well presented and cooked exactly to our request. There is a lovely ambiance in this modern restaurant . Situated on the river the views of the swans and the river are very calming and refreshing. Overall a very pleasant... More

The setting is superb, but the restaurant was very noisy, not conducive to a romantic meal or even normal conversation. The restaurant is supposed to have an excellent reputation,but food was only average, considering what we paid. Even the wine started at £28 for nothing above average.

My partner and I had a very good meal here. Although we did not have a reservation, we were still welcomed and offered a table. The service was quiet and attentive, exactly what you want. The menus were varied and had something to suit everyone. The food was fresh, seasonal, and tasty, lovely. We left feeling full and satisfied. Already... More

I have now eaten at the Jetty at least 7 or 8 times over the last few years with friends, family and business associates for lunch and dinner and have always been delighted. The various menus on offer are well constructed to appeal to all and the food produced is always of a high standard, whilst the service is highly... More

We were no that impressed with the jetty. The building is basic, and resembles a large garden house with glass walls and is situated at the rear of a Hotel. The food was good and the place was hectic. The service was impersonal but satisfactory. We would explore other restaraunts in Christchurch before going back.

We had a great meal here and not as expensive as we expected. We opted for having the wines recommended by the restaurant and it was a good call. The sommelier came and talked to us to check we were enjoying his choices. All in all a great meal and in a great setting.

Lucky to get a last minute booking I can see why people make a fuss about this place. From the first welcoming greeting when we walked in, to the grateful handshake on departure, The Jetty delivers. I know my food, as did my 3 guests. Food keeps coming, portion sizes sensible and appetisers, amuse bouche, and mains were all first... More

Just had to share this really enjoyable lunch with you all. Went with a friend who has not been to Lunch with Alex before where Alex demonstrates each course and show how to prepare and cook each course together with cooking instructions. We started with Escalope of sea trout in a sorrel sauce which was perfect in every way. The... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hosts at the rather special 5 star B&B "Bure Lodge", and we were not disappointed. The setting for this ultra-chic restaurant is quite breathtaking (especially at sunset) - right on Christchurch harbour, with views to Mudeford Quay. I understand that the owner is licensed to purchase fresh seafood direct from fishermen who land their... More

We went to the Jetty for "Alex ad hoc" . It was fantastic - lovely food at a very good price. I was particularly impressed by the mutton with cockles. I have never had mutton before - but on the basis of this dish I would love to have it again. Prior to eating it I was a bit unsure... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the restaurant and especially the recent Alex Ad-hoc. We are so happy that you had a fantastic evening and enjoyed the mutton dish. We love the Ad-hoc evenings and it is great that they are so well supported. We hope to seeing you again soon More
