Hotel restaurant overlooking Christchurch Harbour
The Jetty is the flagship restaurant of Christchurch Harbour Hotel and Spa, set right on the coast in Dorset, with wonderful views overlooking Christchurch harbour. The menus range from £26.95 for a set menu lunch and roughly £40 for an average three-course a la carte meal at time of writing. My brief visit included a thicker than normal cheese souffle (sadly like a soggy sponge and leagues apart from that served at Le Gavroche), a steak tartare that was at the simplified end of the spectrum and a pleasant piece of Sea Bass with buerre blanc sauce. This is a beautiful restaurant and drinks on the terrace in the summer will be an absolute delight, but the service was not truly endearing (it was a struggle getting attention) and presentationally I felt there was plenty of room for the food to receive an upgrade. Perhaps the tasting menu may be a grander food experience.
