FIRST LOOK: Nautical theme for harbour's new restaurant

The final designs have been released for the harbour's nautical new pub and dining space, 'The Shipyard', which hopes to attract tourists, visiting yachtsmen and islanders alike.

Construction work is currently taking place with local contractors to redevelop Elizabeth Terminal's former café area, with the new establishment expected to open by summer.

'The Shipyard' is a joint venture between Casual Dining Group - which run Bella Italia, as well as the catering at Jersey Airport - and Ports of Jersey to create "a contemporary pub, serving classic British pub dishes throughout the day and into the evening, along with a wide range of drinks".

The venue will include a nautical-themed soft play area for young children, TV screens showing live sport, and a stage to provide live entertainment, ranging from comedy to music.

Mark Nelson, Managing Director of Concessions and Franchising, Casual Dining Group, said: “We’re delighted to be opening The Shipyard this summer, creating a new and revitalised hub for the local community to enjoy, as well as appealing to visiting yachtsmen and passengers travelling to Jersey by sea.

“We were determined to create a unique space that would be equally appealing to people using the ferry, as well as those wanting to watch live sport with a pint, or mothers meeting midweek for a coffee."

Mr Nelson added: "We’re very happy with the final designs for the space and truly believe The Shipyard will give the local community and visitors to the Island something new and different to enjoy.”

This summer's opening comes after a long wait for a new dining establishment at Elizabeth Terminal. There had been a project to create a BBQ smokehouse and craft beer venue there last year, but Ports of Jersey pulled the plug on the original project after a fruitless four-and-a-half years.
