Bergerac’s Island - Jersey in the 1980s

30 Mar 2017

The 1980s

Originally built in 1837, the Pomme d’Or hotel has seen quite a few decades go by. But perhaps the decade for which Jersey is best known throughout the UK, thanks to the TV show Bergerac, is the 1980s. The postcard above shows the Pomme in its 1980s glory!

Millions of people around the world were introduced to the Island of Jersey through the fictional Bergerac television series. Occasionally Bergerac reflected real life in Jersey in the 1980s and always celebrated Jersey’s landscape and history as a star of the show.

An amazing decade

A new exhibition at the Jersey Museum, Bergerac’s Island - Jersey in the 1980s, exhibition looks at how we felt about what was happening in the world and Jersey in the 1980s. Starting on Saturday 1st April and running until the end of the year, it's sure to be a potent dose of nostalgia for many locals and tourists alike.

Changing times

The Pomme d'Or was still delighting guests in the 1980s, but today's visitors may not be so impressed with a diet of prawn cocktail served on iceberg lettuce and coffee offered simply white or black! 

Fortunately we've moved with the times, and are proud to serve a variety of exceptional local produce, from world-famous Jersey Royals to an abundance of superb seafood. From our Sunday carvery to a glass of wine, light bite or coffee (espresso, macchiato, Americano, cappuccino, latte or mocha....!) in our Café Bar, there’s certainly something for everyone.

Stylish, relaxed and informal

So if you're visiting Bergerac’s Island - Jersey in the 1980s at Jersey museum, why not pop in to the Pomme for a drink or a bite to eat? We can't promise you a 1980s atmosphere, but we do guarantee that excellence comes as standard!
