Autumn is well and truly here, a time for cosy nights in and weekend walks with the family that end with a delicious pub lunch accompanied by a beverage or two.

Living on an island we’re lucky to have many beautiful walks by the coast or through the winding countryside lanes. We’re also spoilt for choice when it comes to pubs to stop off at, but we’ve picked out our top three.


The Fleur du Jardin

This quintessential pub is nestled in the parish of St Saviours and is only a short stroll through the country lanes away from Vazon beach on Guernsey’s west coast.

The Fleur makes the perfect place to stop following a Sunday stroll for a hearty roast next to their log fire.


The Rockmount

Overlooking Guernsey’s infamous Cobo bay this bustling pub-come-restaurant makes for a great pitstop after exploring the beach with the family on a crisp autumn day.

If you pop in for a beer, hot chocolate or come Christmas time a mulled wine you might be lucky enough to get a spot on their comfy sofas. Or if you’re feeling peckish they have a fabulous menu to choose from. All of which you can enjoy while admiring the sea view!


Les Douvres

Here’s another gem tucked away in the lanes this time in the southern parish of St Martins, although being a small island you’re never far away from the coast and there are some great cliff walks to be had near here.

This place just exudes warmth from the moment you walk through the door, whether you’re heading there for a roast or just a drink you’re in for a treat. Be sure to check out their board game selection too!

In all honesty, we were spoilt for choice so this is by no means an exhaustive list. In fact, be sure to keep your eye on our blog for further posts regarding great eateries and watering holes Guernsey has to offer!
