Located on Hayling Island in the desirable ‘Sparkes Marina’ and based at the entrance to Chichester Harbour, allowing fast and easy access to us at all states of the tide. Our Restaurant and bar boast superb views accross the Marina and Chichester Harbour.
Marina Jaks has recently retained its place in the 2008 Which Good Food Guide. This rates the standard of the restaurant in the top 1500 in the United Kingdom and top 20 or so in Hampshire. In addition to this we have just received a Gold medal award in the British Beer and Pub Association Beautiful Beer Guide.
Much of the trade at Marina Jaks comes during the summer months and comments from Islanders are that it is too difficult to get a table during that period.
This autumn we intend to make more of an emphasis on creating an atmosphere similar to a Gastro Pub. There will be a daily happy hour period from 5pm-7pm Monday-Friday with all beers £2 a pint and £2 off a bottle of house wine. In addition to this we will offer free snacks on the bar and a “Dish of the Day” available at lunch and dinner for £7.95.
The Restaurant will be open for meals Wednesday-Sunday for lunch and dinner service. Monday and Tuesday will be bar only from 4pm.
Christmas Parties will be an exception so should you wish to book for any dates in December please telephone the restaurant.
We are also considering some live music events but news of these will be posted on our new website which is still http://www.marinajaks.co.uk The website is much improved and we will be including recipes from the hugely talented Adam Byatt whose restaurant Trinity has just been awarded AA London Restaurant of the Year 2007-2008.
We care very much about the opinions of Islanders and any comments, criticisms, or suggestions you may have will be great-fully received. Please either post them on the website or call a member of staff on 02392 469459.
Thank you, to all of our customers.
