4 of us went to Fleur du Jardin for their Quidsin Pimms and Grazing platter in the garden which was basic. We then moved into the restaurant for an early main course meal and ordered a bottle of their Chilean white 'house' wine which when tasted was at room temperature. We asked the waitress for another 'chilled' bottle and on checking, she did her best, reported they were all the same, even after checking in the bar! We asked if there was another similar white wine which was chilled and was told there wasn't so we waited patiently while it eventually chilled in it's plastic water and ice filled bucket. However, by the time we are able to drink the wine we had half finished our one course so needless to say we weren't too impressed. Have to say the main course was good and the service, baring this blip, was friendly and efficient. However, instead of ordering a second bottle and possible a pudding we left feeling a bit annoyed they had no 'chilled' wine on offer. We are local and will return but felt embarrassed as this could happen with overseas visitors who will definitely not be impressed, shame as the hotel has a lot to offer but there is no excuse for not having chilled wine available!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 17th-Century country Inn, lots of charm and warmth. Very busy restaurant recommended by "The good Hotel Guide", "Michelin Dining out in Pubs Guide", "CAMRA traditional real Ale Guide" and many others. "Shabby Chic" in Guernsey is how we are described and we strive to maintain the original old charms of the building but adding a little contemporary quirkiness. Many local fish dishes and our signature "Chancre" crab salads prove very popular with visitors and locals alike. If you enjoy your food, you will love the Fleur. ... more less
