Food & Drink

Thanks to its beautiful coastline, it is no surprise that fresh seafood plays a big part in the Guernsey food scene, supplying everything from pubs and restaurants to your quintessential chippy. But if you’re not a seafood fan, there’s nothing to worry about because Guernsey covers just about every type of cuisine you can think of when it comes to food.

After spending time exploring Candie Gardens, enjoy some tea and cake at Café Victoria. Eat fish and chips on the beach from one of the local fish & chip shops. Watch the sun go down on Cobo Hotel’Beach Terrace or choose from one of many al fresco dining options.

If you’re looking to learn a little more about Guernsey’s local drinks, why not experience a gin tasting session with Wheadon’s Gin who have been producing gin on the island for over 100 years. A half an hour experience costs only £25, and you can enjoy a longer session including food for £50. Like most places, Guernsey also has a few traditional dishes that are worth looking out for during your visit.

Guernsey Bean Jar is one of the most well-known of them all - this slow-cooked dish was originally cooked in the local baker’s ovens overnight in the residual heat, but as years have gone on, slow cookers have become the easiest way to cook it. Haricot beans, butter beans, and often a shin of beef or pigs trotter are cooked in stock along with carrots, onions, and some seasoning to make the perfect warming winter stew. Another of these is Guernsey Gâche, a fruit loaf containing dried fruit and mixed peel that is best served with some local Guernsey butter!
