The JettyWaterfront Restaurant, Christchurch

Taste of South West Tourism Excellence award winner, The Jetty is set right on the water’s edge looking across to Mudeford Quay, Dorset – all our diners just stand and gaze at the spectacular views!

We are located in the grounds of the Christchurch Harbour Hotel so The Jetty is easy to find. It has a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere and is a fantastic place to gather, share a bottle of wine with friends, take in the breathtaking views and choose something from the totally delicious menus.

At The Jetty we always have mouth-watering fish landed daily on the local Quay and suppliers from the local area drop seasonal ingredients right to our kitchen – it’s these local flavours that we want to celebrate with the community around us. We want The Jetty to be a neighbourhood Christchurch restaurant.
