“Lovely food and friendly service!”
Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

I think we were very lucky and got the best of the bunch on our table. Great service and went out of his way to deal with a couple of minor problems. Other staff didn't seem to have the same charm. Food was very good and we thorough enjoyed our visit.

“Quality Burgers”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

Visited James and White and was very pleased with both food and service, not the cheapest burger Ive ever eaten. But can't fault them. Polite staff, in pleasant surrounding. One my list of 'Places to Eat' in Christchurch, a town which is becoming a great place to spend an evening in.

“Great Breakfast & Coffee”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

Popped in for some breakfast and wasn't disappointed. Has definitely improved since taken over from The Copper Skillet... Good quality food and drinks.... Full Dorset English brekkie and a Cortado coffee and orange juice..... All good, good service, no complaints. Nice and sunny on the front tables..... Keep up the good work. Could of gone straight into lunch as those options looked great as well.... Definitely returning....

“Friday feeling....”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

I used to work in the place when it was 'the copper skillet'.....and across the road at 'cheese n alfies'......things have improved 100%. We had a cosy table, food great, very attentive staff and a musical duo to listen too. The place is funky but unlike across the road humble and cosy. Great atmos. Everytime i drive by its buzzing.

“Impromptu dinner !”
Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

Staying at a local hotel and wandered into the centre of Christchurch for an early evening meal. Looked at several but decided James and White looked clean and menu inviting. It was a busy Friday evening and we had not booked but were lucky enough to get a table. Food was delicious and service exemplary. Skewers were yummy ! Would highly recommend this place.
