Whether it’s summer or winter, a pint accompanied by a sea view is hard to beat. As an island, Jersey’s spoilt for choice when it comes to seaside pubs – here are a few of our favourite places to eat great pub food, drink local ales and enjoy watching the sea.
North: The Prince of Wales.
Being this close to the sea, you’d expect there to be good seafood on the menu and at the Prince of Wales pub and guesthouse, you won’t be disappointed. Most of their crab, lobster, sea bass and mackerel travels just a few hundred yards from the bay to the kitchen, and in the winter you can sit by the fire in the Fisherman’s Bar.
South: The Old Court House.
A 400-year old building on the edge of St. Aubin’s Harbour, rammed with nautical character and history, step inside for good-value food, craft beer and local ale on tap. Choose a table in the historic Westward Pub with its granite well or sit out on the harbour view terrace for seafood platters in the sun.
East: The Seymour Inn.
Real ales and hearty pub grub in a cosy seaside spot looking out over Jersey’s east coast to Seymour Tower. The menu’s strong on seafood, and don’t miss the oysters – you can see the beds where they were grown from the Seymour’s alfresco terrace.
West: Staks at La Pulente.
Right at the southern end of St. Ouen’s Bay, you’re guaranteed sensational Atlantic views from this pub. A relaxed atmosphere and great food menu make it a popular spot for locals and visitors – either for lunch after a beach walk or a pub supper with spectacular sunset views.
