James and White
Located on the cobbles by Christchurch’s historic priory you’ll find James and White, a relaxed bar and kitchen serving excellent food and drink. The decor is rustic and contemporary – think ladders on the walls, a bar made of reclaimed wood, and hanging light bulbs. Start your meal with the delightful salt and pepper squid, and follow with a farm-assured steak, served with roasted vine tomatoes, flat mushrooms, shoestring fries and homemade peppercorn sauce. For dessert, try Amy’s Failing, an ice cream sundae comprising local salted caramel and honeycomb ice creams layered with homemade fudge, whipped cream and toffee sauce. James and White is a great place to visit for drinks, thanks to the bar boasting various craft beers, local gins, a bountiful wine list and homemade cocktails, including the Espresso Conkertini made with Conker cold-pressed coffee liqueur. Add this to the frequent live music and you’ve got yourself a fabulous evening out.
