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.

Shells fish and chips has been established a couple of years now and is once again under new management. Good old faithful Bev is still there with her welcoming smile and interesting chat.
I believe the new bosses are South African and they are very hospitable, friendly and hard working. The fish and chips seem to get better and better and now there is sausage and rotisserie chicken on the menu. A lovely setting, either inside a real London double decker bus or outside under the palm trees and the stars, with very attractive picnic benches, lit by beautiful shell lights.

Some of the best fish and chips I have had! And the best meal we've had in Antigua! This was a great place to come after a wonderful day at the beach!

Make sure to meet Joe - he owns the place and is the man.

Hands down the best fish & chips I've had! Coming from Toronto there are plenty mom and pop fish in chip shops but nothing compares to this place. Fish was moist and just enough tasty batter. As for Joe and his lovely wife thank you for the delightful and insightful conversations, Oh and the Nandos chicken wings!

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.
