We went here on the offchance looking for a simple meal and it fit the bill. We both had the daily special (beef bourgignone) and it was tasty and good value (£10 each). Plenty of mash to soak up the stew, filled us up nicely. Also had a glass of house red and it was fine. Would certainly go again.

Stayed for a week recently on the island and found this gem of a pub on our third day. It is not located on a main thoroughfare and we only found it by chance during our street walks. It may be only a fairly small pub but it does serve a good selection of well kept real ales served by... More

We visited this pub 10 years ago and probably better now. Owned by The White Rock Brewery, 3 of their beers on, plus ciders and other beers. If you are a Camra member you get a discount on pints. We ate here most night, lovely food good choice at a good price.

We stopped in this pub after our visit to Hauteville House, home of Victor Hugo where we had scampi and chips and chicken curry, both excellent choices. The service was friendly and prompt. This restaurant is off the beaten path but worth seeking out.

When I was taught to cook, presentation was also an integral part of the process & that an odd number of food items on a plate was far more attractive than an even number. Popped in for a lunchtime bite. My partner had scampi, chips & salad, (£9.95), which she enjoyed but it was nothing above the average 'pub grub',... More

I am visiting Guernsey mainly on business and knew of this small friendly pub but had not yet visited - it did not disappoint at friendly chatty staff and 5 good beers including 3 local Whiterock brews on hand pumps + a good selection for lager types and local cider - food menu is good value and good choice not...

Very popular and busy pub in the centre of St. Peter port. Food is straightforward, plentiful and reasonable value. Wash it down with some real ale or decent lager.

This is a great CAMRA Pub serving good food and Ales. There was a vibrant atmosphere. It is close to the Town main shopping area. Recommended.
