A hidden gem

On previous recommendations and after a lot of searching, we found this local pub away from the tourist area. Despite being a locals pub, we were made very welcome by the very attentive staff. The food was good value and most dishes were around £10. They were presented well and very appetising.

Finally, we found the local Guernsey specialities - Bean Jar (a sort of cassoulet) and Gache Melee - all beautifully and brilliantly cooked by the funny, friendly, sarcastic but great chef. This place is a real find, wtih decent ales and great food. Best of all, it has a real atmosphere of casual, laid back and matey camaraderie, mixed with... More

Standard local pub, deceptively big though, with good range of beers and wines, and friendly staff, décor is a bit of a mix but comfortable.

We went here after reading good reviews about beer and food and weren't disappointed. Very nice local pints and tasty veggie food. A good find!

Over for Hertford's London III game we popped into the Cornerstone for a sharpener after lunch. It was just as good as last year with a great welcome and the usual familiar faces. Great beer as ever - 'tis the place in Guernsey for me

No fancy frills. No arty-farty presentation. Just good food at a reasonable price. Manages to find the right balance between feeding us grockles and being a watering hole for the locals. Well done!

Ate here on our last night in Guernsey. Such a friendly place. Evening meals served between 6-8pm and well worth a visit. Good prices too.
