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.
Inspired by a traditional sweetshop, our Afternoon Tea offering celebrates the joy of rediscovering old favourites and the thrill of finding something new and scrumptious. Savour freshly made finger sandwiches, homemade scones and a selection of delicious cakes and pastries inspired by the magic of an original sweetshop!
The tea is suitable for Halal.
