A charming 16th-century coaching inn
Within Thomas Hardy’s enchanting village of Evershot...
The Crown Club at The Old Government House Hotel is the most stylish and relaxing rendezvous in all of Guernsey - the perfect spot to enjoy the company of friends and colleagues over a few drinks and a light meal. Created from the original 18th century Old Crown Offices it provides an intimate and flexible collection of inviting spaces that are perfect for a wide range of occasions and functions, including a glass-walled wine and whisky-tasting room.
The plush and cosy bar has a very traditional and opulent feel, with red leather banquette seating and a wealth of antique brass fittings. It offers an outstanding selection of premium whiskies and British gins, Champagne, vodkas and cognacs as well as cocktails, beers and fine wines, including signature vintages from our sister wine estate Bouchard Finlayson.
From fly fishing lessons to half and full-day trips, Frank will tailor your experience to suit your ability. Suitable for beginners and competent fishermen alike, the majority of fishing trips take place from hand-crafted 19ft clinker traditional wooden boats on Lough Corrib. Opt for a full day experience and you will enjoy a picnic lunch on one of the islands and the chance to cook your catch!
For competent fishermen, we also offer fishing on nearby Lough Mask and Lough Carra, or further afield in Connemara. The Cong River at the hotel is a great option for very experienced and able-bodied salmon fishermen.
All fishing gear is supplied. We recommend you dress in warm, waterproof clothing, boots and bring sunglasses.
