The Crown Club at The Old Government House Hotel is the most stylish and relaxing rendezvous in all of 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.
The plush and cosy bar has a very traditional and opulent feel, with red leather banquette seating and a wealth of antique brass fittings. It offers an outstanding selection of premium whiskies and British gins, Champagne, vodkas and cognacs as well as cocktails, beers and fine wines, including signature vintages from our sister wine estate Bouchard Finlayson.
We are excited to launch a new version of our Royal Afternoon Tea.
