At J B Parker's we like to think we offer the perfect menu for every taste, time, occasion and budget.
Our fantastic venue incorporates one of the most beautiful
wine cellars in Guernsey. It is also stocked up with some of
the best examples of classic, quirky and iconic wines we can
find. We want to bring that experience even closer to you with
our JB's Wine Tuesdays.
Every Tuesday from 6.00pm, you can have any wine from our list, including wines by the glass for 20% OFF their listed price! Upgrade your Prosecco to a Champagne, try that illusive vintage wine, or gamble on a fun wine just because why not.
You can also experience 16 premium wines displayed in our wine tasting machine with tasting cards also discounted by 20%. The machine offers you three measures of each wine, a 50ml taster, a drive safe 125ml measure and a regular 175ml glass, so you can tailor both your budget and your experience.
Lastly, but definitely not least, you can bring your own bottle! We are wine lovers ourselves and we know how annoying it is, to not have a proper occasion to open that one special bottle, that is slowly gathering dust on our shelf at home. So, at JB Parker's, you can bring your own bottle anytime you want, but if you bring it on Tuesday, we will even waive the corkage fee! We will serve it, decant it and pour it for you and we will even do the dishes.
JB's Wine Tuesdays - every Tuesday from 6.00pm.

J B Parker's - A Potted History
Jack Buller Parker was born in Bristol on 12th January
1900 the second youngest of a family of 8. He married Ella
Bennett in 1926, and they then came to Guernsey along with
his older brother Seymour. Jack and Ella had a lease on
the Golden Lion Pub and lived in the flat above. ( Seymour
and his wife Ruth also took on the Swan pub.) Their only
daughter Sheila was born in 1931.
In 1940 with the imminent threat of invasion Ella returned to Bristol with Sheila, and Jack remained in Guernsey however along with other British Nationals in 1942 he was deported to Laufen in Germany where he remained until the end of the war. Returning after the war they continued to run the Golden Lion for another 11 years. In the meantime Sheila had met and married a young Austrian who had moved to the island, and so in 1956 the foursome took over the lease of Moores Hotel. (The first step in the founding of the Sarnia Hotel group). Jack looked after the public bar - aptly named Jack's bar. Over the year's Jack's bar has had many incarnations: the Almanac, the Pollet Bar, latterly the Library and now JB Parker's.
