It may be a grey, wintry day, but there is nothing to cheer the soul like a sea view, with scudding clouds, and wading birds floating above a reflective sea... Even better then, if you can take-in that view from within a warm, bright and glass wrapped haven.
The Jetty appears to float above Christchurch Harbour - all weathered wood, sparkling glass and steel - it's perched like a launching boat, next to the grey waters. It is run by by Alex Aitken, who has cooked in the New Forest for over twenty-five years. At le Poussin he held a Michelin star, and he moved to The Jetty in 2010.
