Each year Guernsey chefs gear up for a phenomenal 6-week focus on food with the Tennerfest Food Festival. Hotels, restaurants, bistros, gastro pubs and cafés all take part in providing fixed price low-cost menus showcasing the best of their cuisine. The sun may have set on summer but October and November are great months to visit the island, especially for food lovers.
It's a great time of year to holiday in Guernsey avoiding the busy summer months, whilst enjoying the mild autumn weather in the Channel Islands. With so much fantastic locally sourced fresh produce available, the islands’ chefs work to create special all-inclusive menus showcasing the best of their cuisine. The original Tennerfest 3 course menu price was fixed at £10 per person and whilst many establishments continue to offer this, others have diversified into 2 to 4 course menus with fixed prices of £12.50, £15, £17.50 and £20.
Tennerfest is a great time to visit the island. Alfresco dining is still possible and Tennerfest is such a good opportunity to sample a wide range of food.
