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.
Explore and enjoy our very own culinary experiences at our sister hotel Summer Lodge. Their Executive Chef, Steven Titman, and renowned sommelier, Eric Zwiebel, are on hand to provide cooking, tasting and foraging experiences.
Childhay Manor, Beaminster DT8 3LQ
The world’s oldest surviving family of cheddar makers, the Barber family has been making cheese and producing milk for over 200 years. As a farmer running his own dairy farm, Jason uses the leftover whey from the cheese-making process to make a deliciously creamy vodka that's perfect for pairing with food. The mineral-free nature of the vodka gives it an incredible softness that holds delicate flavours.
