Booked on a recommendation from an islander (we were visiting from Guernsey). I understand that Georgian House had recently re-opened after a change of ownership and refurbishment. Dinner was in a bright, airy upstairs room - the Orangery. The choice of dishes on the menu isn't huge, but covers all bases and seems to focus on high quality seasonal produce, much of which is sourced locally. The wine list is also relatively short but again offers enough choice for all tastes from the old and new worlds - a corked Rioja was replaced without fuss. Good bread (made in-house?) and georgious local butter. Service is provided by a young, enthusiastic and knowledgable staff.
My Organic Pig Plate starter consisted of six individual sample dishes including a pig's head croquette, liver parfait, crispy ear and ham hock terrine (everything but the oink!) on a slate. A really fun dish, beautifully presented and very tasty. Main course was lamb rump, cooked exactly as requested and correctly seasoned, with dauphinoise potatoes. A seafood linguini was highly praised by my fellow diners; desserts and cheeses also hit the spot. Our bill of £50 per head (with a decent tip - no cover or service charge) included aperitifs and a bottle of wine apiece and was entirely in keeping with the quality of the meal.
Though by no means a culinary wasteland I don't think it would be unfair to say that Alderney is not renowned for high-end dining and Georgian House delivers serious food that's as good as you'll find anywhere in the Islands. Highly recommended.
