Guests can enjoy a selection of tempting treats including:

  • Warm scones with thick cream and home-made jam
  • Delicate finger sandwiches including smoked Scottish salmon and cream cheese

The Brasserie Restaurant

Sunny and Sociable

Set in a spacious and sunny conservatory, overlooking the peaceful private gardens and St Peter Port harbour beyond, The Brasserie provides a lovely light and informal environment for breakfast, lunch and evening dining.

Using an abundance of fresh local produce Executive Head Chef Robert Newall has created a range of delicious seasonal menus for you to enjoy.


Al fresco dining

With Guernsey boasting a monthly average of 240 hours of sunshine from May through to August, the Olive Grove, with its magnificent sea views, is the perfect spot to dine al fresco at any time and take advantage of those warm summer days. As the only restaurant with a garden in the centre of St Peter Port, you can indulge and relax while looking out to sea across the harbour and Castle Cornet.

During the summer months, The Olive Grove is the ideal location for breakfast in the bright morning sunshine or a wonderful lunch. A chilled glass of Champagne is tempting with your afternoon tea while basking in the sun, or maybe, as the day ends, you can enjoy a cool and refreshing cocktail after a long and busy day.

Authentic Indian cuisine

The Curry Room at The Governor’s offers Indian cuisine in relaxed and convivial surroundings. The restaurant, which can also be used for private social events and corporate dinners, is adorned with pictures and memorabilia of the island's past Governors. 

The menu has been influenced by Mrs Tollman and Kevin Joseph, our Executive Head Chef at The Oyster Box in South Africa and is expertly prepared by Bronwyn Coetzee to give you a selection of the finest Indian cuisine recipes from around the world.

To make any occasion a little more special, why not enjoy the menu with a flight of wines which have been specially selected to complement the flavours and textures of your chosen dishes. Alternatively, traditional Indian Kingfisher beer is also served.

The Crown Club

Where to go when you are in the know

The Crown Club at The Old Government House Hotel is the most stylish and relaxing rendezvous in all Guernsey - the perfect spot to enjoy the company of friends and colleagues over a few drinks and a light meal.

Created from the original 18th century Old Crown Offices it provides an intimate and flexible collection of inviting spaces that are perfect for a wide range of occasions and functions including a glass-walled wine and whisky tasting room.
