Fisherman's Pub

If you are itching to try some home grown local dishes on your stay in Barbados and can handle a somewhat rough and ready eatery, Fisherman's Pub and Grub will not disappoint. This is honest-to-goodness local food in an authentic unvarnished rum shopstyle restaurant. If you can see past its ramshackle appearance and hotchpotch of vinyl floral table cloths, assorted wire and plastic chairs it might just be the most memorable dining experience of your visit to the island.


Situated next to the Speightstown fish market on Queen Street, Fisherman's Pub is quite a large wooden building painted in virulent red and yellow that is hard to miss. It is right next to the bridge over a sea inlet that is known locally as the Salt Pond. The restaurant has been operating for over 38 years by the current owner, Mr. Clement Armstrong and once belonged to his aunt, so in fact has been in the same family for over 75 years.


At the front of the restaurant the featured dishes of the day are laid out canteen style for your selection and individually priced according to your order. Beyond is a surprisingly capacious seating area with makeshift jalousie windows with shimmering turquoise sea views. While the take away option is popular among the locals who are hustling and bustling about their business, the tables are a welcome refuge for those who have a bit more time on their side. This is also a perfect time to enjoy their House Rum Punch. Unlike many Rum Punches you will find around Barbados, theirs is made with fresh squeezed limes straight from the owner’s garden and sprinkled with grated nutmeg.


Lunch is served 11am - 3pm everyday except Sunday with a wide assortment of prepared dishes. You might find Baked Pork Chops, Barbados Pepperpot Beef Stew, Curried Chicken or Blackened Shark. While visiting Barbados, this is a great place to try  dishes made of "ground provisions" or local root vegetables and include Sweet Potato, Yam, Eddoe and Cassava all tastily prepared. Pickled Green Banana, the national dish Cou-Cou (made of cornmeal and okra) and their trademark Fish Head Soup with dumpings are also favourites.


The Fisherman's Pub & Grub is only open one evening a week, on Wednesdays where they offer dinner and entertainment. Although the line up changes frequently it often includes Barbados Steelpan music and cultural dancing. It's best to call to find out what's on during your visit.


Open for Lunch Monday - Saturday 11:00 am - 3:00 pm.

Dinner and Show Wednesday only from 7:00 pm.

Wheelchair accessible.
