Description: LIVE MUSIC EVERY THURSDAY FROM 8.00 A bright red original 1959 London Double Decker bus. Located next to Sugar Ridge Hotel and just a 5 minutes walk from Jolly Harbour this icon is impossible to miss. The bus has been completely renovated and provides seating for 40 guests. We did our best to maintain the historic integrity of this British classic. Or sit outside enjoying the breeze in our lush tropical garden. Delicious fish, crispy chunky chips, homemade mushy peas and tartar sauce and finally some pickles give you the classic fish & chips experience. Beyond that we serve shrimp for those who are less into fish we are happy to offer succulent sausages and rotisserie chicken with any of our side dishes.

Joe and Wayne are amazing hosts and the food was delicious. The fish was cooked to perfection. We had a great last evening in Antigua enjoying fish and chips that were truly better than any I have ever had, even in London! Thanks guys for the wonderful food, company and conversation. Oh and the Fireball shots were awesome! The only drawback is we didn't make it there until our last night :-(
We'll just have to go visit them on a future vacation. Don't hesitate, just pull over and get on the bus to receive some of the best service and food on the island.

Thank you for the best fish n chips we had in a long while. My 6 year old daughter called the fish amazing so it must have been good.

The setting is beautiful in the dark and we all found the bus very quirky and fun.

We will be back next year.

Ok so it wasn't cod but it WAS very good fish and chips. We only went to this plaice because our young nephews went on and on until we gave in. I'm only sorry it took us so long because I hate to say it (being British) it's probably the best fish and chips I've had. The setting is quirky and fun. Our server Joe was an excellent host who went out of his way to keep all eight of us happy. He also now knows what a "Wally" is!

We were driving around looking for something yummy on a Sunday night, and came across this wee gem in Jolly Harbour! Joe is so friendly and we had a great chat and then ordered the best fish and chips I've had in a very long time! The ambience is fantastic and Joe makes sure your beer hasn't run dry. Loved every part of the meal and could have eaten a bucket of those mushy peas. We will be back! Thanks!

This place is amazing, and worth the trip no matter where you are staying on the island. Our server, Joe, was extremely personable and engaging--truly took the time to make us feel welcome.

But the star here is the fish and chips-- proper fish and chips and mushy peas. I've not had better in London. The batter is light, crisp and flavorful, the chips perfect, and the local fish is incredibly well-suited for this preparation.

If you are staying anywhere near Jolly Harbor and don't visit Shell's, you've missed something special.
