About the Chef

Alex Aitken, Chef Patron for the Jetty, is one of the South of England’s most respected chefs and a thirty-year veteran of cooking in the New Forest. 

Private dining

Come dine with us

Although it doesn’t have a separate dining space per se, the restaurant can section off areas of the dining room for private dinners. You can also ask for ‘Table 30’ a large communal round table with lazy Susan seating up to 16.

In addition to the restaurant’s a la carte menu, Chef Alex Aitken has created additional menu options exclusive to private diners. You may create your own bespoke set tasting menu, or opt for one of the fixed-priced set menus, a 5-course tasting menu with optional wine pairings, or his ever-popular ‘Bring me Food’ menu, with dishes delivered platter-style to the centre of the table.

If you still can’t find the menu you want - ask Alex to create you one!
