Taste Guernsey for a ‘tenner’ at the 20th annual Tennerfest

Regular followers of the blog will know how much we love Guernsey, and we are hoping to return next year after our first trip there in 2016. Here’s the latest piece of exciting news from the foodie scene on the island.

From 1 October to 11 November, Guernsey celebrates the 20th anniversary of its annual Tennerfest, which sees over 150 restaurants across the Channel Islands offering three course menus from just £10.

Over six weeks, restaurants all over Guernsey are featuring special menus that represent savings of almost 50% on normal prices. Starting with 25 menus for £10 up to gourmet dining at just £21, Tennerfest is the chance for foodies to taste their way around Guernsey, as well as the island of Sark, for less, including fresh seafood and homegrown produce, or local specialities of ‘Bean Jar’ (a one pot meal cooked overnight and made of beans, pork belly and onion) and artisan cheeses.

Tennerfest is one of Guernsey’s most popular foodie events with an estimated five million Tennerfest meals consumed since the event’s inception. For example, at La Perla Restaurant on the harbour front in St Peter Port, for £10 diners can enjoy a starter of Parma ham and fig platter, fillet of seabass served with chive mashed potato and avocado vinaigrette for main, and apple pie and ice cream for dessert.

There are also fixed price menus at £12.50, £15, £17.50 and £20, and three Guernsey restaurants also feature menus under the Tennerfest ‘Gourmet’ price band, which highlights quality as well as value for money. These include a six-course set menu at Bella Luce Hotel at £35, three courses at acclaimed La Reunion for £21, and three courses at beachside restaurant Roc Salt for £29.95 plus a glass of prosecco to start.
