Practical information : Eating out Channel Islands

TimetableTimetable

After a hearty breakfast, lunch is generally light and eaten on the go between 12:30 and 1:30 pm. For dinner, we eat at English time, that is to say around 7pm, after a visit to the pub. Restaurants close early and often do not serve after 9:30 pm. Dinner is hearty and often includes fish or meat, starchy foods and vegetables.

Budget & TipsBudget & Tips

The cost of living is, in general, equivalent to that of the UK. However, fresh and usual products are more expensive than on the mainland (since they are all imported). The Channel Islands are therefore not a cheap destination when it comes to eating out. Count on £4 to £8 for a sandwich, £10 to £15 for a fish & chips or a simple dish in a cheap restaurant, £15 to £30 for a dish in a more upmarket restaurant or steakhouse and £60 to £100 for a meal in one of the luxurious restaurants of the archipelago.

So don't hesitate to play it local and take advantage of the copious breakfasts that are served in the vast majority of hotels, bed & breakfasts and guesthouses before eating a good fish & chips for example. Moreover, some cheap restaurants on the beach practice BYOB (Bring Your Own Bottle) where you can bring your own drink. What to lower the bill.

What costs extraWhat costs extra

In restaurants, if service is not included (it often is, but check the bill), leave a 10% tip. In pubs, the service is included, but nothing prevents you from adding a few coins if the service was particularly pleasant... or if you want to be noticed to be served more quickly during the second round.

The local wayThe local way

In the Channel Islands, breakfast is usually very copious, like Full English Breakfast (eggs, bacon, sausage, white beans in tomato sauce, toast, etc.). We spend time at the table before starting the day. Hotels and restaurants will almost all offer you this meal which is so important for the inhabitants of the archipelago

Cream tea is also a moment not to be missed in these islands, a real sacred moment in the afternoon

KidsKids

Please note that most restaurants and especially pubs and other drinking establishments do not accept children after 10 pm. Don't forget this when you go out for dinner.

SmokersSmokers

As in France, it is forbidden to smoke in pubs and restaurants. Except on the terrace of course.
