The Braye Beach Hotel showcases some of the finest views in the Channel Islands, with a panoramic sweep opening onto the picturesque Braye Bay on Alderney’s north coast.

About The Braye Beach Hotel

The Braye Beach Hotel features a selection of menus, from breakfasts and morning coffees to the daily-changing table d’hote menu and the a la carte restaurant menu. The restaurant features subtle décor that sits comfortably alongside the beautiful beach and sea views, whilst the terrace offers alfresco dining for those warm summer afternoons and evenings. The Braye Beach also boasts its own pub, the Divers, noted as the oldest pub in Alderney. Here visitors can enjoy a drink or some leisurely pub grub whilst taking in the views, be they sunny or stormy!

Food at the Braye Beach Restaurant is heavily influenced by French cooking, featuring many local ingredients cooked in a modern style. Locally caught seafood takes centre-stage, with wild herbs from the island’s rolling landscape dotted through the menu’s dishes. Highlights include fresh oysters, local lobster, and a very special slow-cooked salmon fillet served on a cool black slate.

The Divers Pub offers visitors outstanding pub grub, including freshly made burgers made with Alderney pork and beef. In the true spirit of local, fresh food, the Divers menu states that “we do not do fast food, we do freshly cooked food for you as fast as we can”.

The Braye Beach is a perfect location for parties and events, priding themselves on being able to host celebrations from the intimate to the large, including weddings taking over the entire hotel. The hotel’s special events are a must for visitors to Alderney, with Best of British menus and Strawberry Extravaganzas recently being hosted for this year’s Diamond Jubilee.
