If you are happy and able to walk a little, the airport bus, route 15, runs regularly all year, and also stops just above the Bay. Alight at Red Houses or Rose Farm, then walk 10 – 15 minutes down La Marquanderie Hill or Mont Sohier to get to the restaurant.

Banjo and 8 Beresford Street are in Jersey’s town centre, around 10 minutes’ walk from the central bus station, Liberation Station. All bus routes around the Island terminate at Liberation Station, so you can easily get to Banjo from anywhere on the Island. Check the LibertyBus website to find the bus route closest to you, and to check times and other details.

The walk from Liberation Station to Banjo takes around 10 minutes, and is flat and pedestrian-friendly.

To walk to Banjo, exit the bus station to the right, then continue down Conway Street (opposite Liberation Square, heading towards the town centre). Continue past the Broad Street fountain on your left, then turn right once you get onto the high street (King Street). Continue up King Street until you reach the beginning of Queen Street, where you should turn left onto Halkett Place. Continue past the Central Market, then turn right onto Beresford Street. Banjo will be on your right a little way down.

If you are unable or prefer not to walk from the Bus Station to Beresford Street, the connecting Town Link bus service (route 20) runs regularly from Liberation Station around St Helier, and stops close to Beresford Street, outside the central market.

We have three Café Ubé outlets in St Helier, at Liberation Station (the main bus terminal), Colomberie, and the Shipyard.

The Liberation Station café is easily accessible from all bus routes, and a great place for a quick drink or snack when disembarking in the town centre, or while waiting for a bus out of town.

Our Colomberie café is within two minutes’ walk of bus stops at Snow Hill and Grenville Street, which are served by all inbound buses coming back to St Helier from the east.

The Shipyard is located within Elizabeth Terminal, which is around 5 minutes’ walk from Liberation Station.

The route 15 bus provides a regular service between St Helier and Jersey Airport, and is a great way to travel to and from the town centre when arriving into the Island, or when catching a flight. Buses serving route 15 tend to be larger, with more space for passengers travelling with luggage.

Routes 9 and 22 also serve Jersey Airport.

For further information and timetables, please see the LibertyBus website before you travel.

Café Ubé at Jersey Airport is a short walk from the bus stop, with the landside café immediately on your left as you enter the main Departures terminal, and the airside café straight ahead as you exit Security.
