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.

“Fun fish and chips night”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Great idea and fabulous fish and chips. A laugh to be on a double decker bus in the middle of Antigua - I didn't give a 5 solely because they'd run out of mushy peas! You get to write on the inside of the bus too, just to say that you'd stopped by.

“Fabulous place!”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

I can't say enough great things about this place! We arrived early right before opening time. They we just finishing setting up. Joe was so very hospitable, got us seated and drinks right away, while we looked around and enjoyed the outdoor seating and looking around the double decker bus. The fish and chips were perfect, as well as mushy peas and fried pickles! Even though the food was great, we especially enjoyed Joe, so friendly and personable, he even called our resort the next day to wish me a happy birthday! How nice!
If you are in Antigua, you must stop here!

“A 'must do' in Jolly Harbour”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

As a family of 4 with 2 strapping teenagers in tow we wanted to find something a bit more fun than hotel food for the kids whilst we were staying at The Sugar Ridge Hotel and we found it right across the road. Joe had my children in stitches and the food was really good too. Not the best fish and chips ever but certainly good enough for us to want return for a second evening, and my son tried the rotisserie chicken and said it was lovely. Both times we sat outside under the stars and enjoyed a very relaxed and lovely evening with the (not unwanted) interaction of Joe.

“Little Gem”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

What can I say! Unusual location opposite our hotel and recommended by other guests! Who would have thought fish and chips served on a London bus in a style that would not have looked out of place in Brighton! We were met by Bev a knowledgeable front line to the customer with a cheery laugh and a personality to fall in love with. Once we had chosen our food fish and chips, mushy peas and shrimps with a glass of red wine. Beware that unless you ask for room temp red wine then it will come chilled. However, this added to the quirkiness of this unusual restaurant. The food was quick and served in paper within a basket and was simply delicious. Around 8pm the locals started arriving and you knew if they supported it then it must be good. We were not disappointed as the food was excellent and additional drinks were ordered to make this trip complete. Met the entrepreneurial owner who has a chartered yacht and Buggys to explore the island. I would encourage everyone to drop in enjoy the fare and take in the atmosphere and perhaps book a trip for later in the holiday. Big thank you from Andrew and Emma to everyone particularly Bev, if only we could take her home with us and put a smile on everyone's face! Thank you !!

“Good quality fish and chips in unusual surroundings!”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Good fish and chips, crispy batter and nice chips, cooked exactly the way they should be. OK, the fish is not from the Caribbean, but it is tasty and as Joe said, it ensures a good 'even' quality and size of portion, which was fairly generous, by most standards. Eating on a double decker bus was a new and interesting experience and the drinks and food bill was not as big as many of the meals we've had, for lesser quality. Would highly recommend it!
