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.

Close to a road that would be my only but, but the rest is good food, cheap price and friendly service !

Decided to give this place a try and were so pleased we did. It's charm is that its basic but we sat under cover outside the bus and listened to the rain pouring down and as we had put on plenty of mozzie repellent we were perfectly placed to play a few card games (supplied on the table) while relaxing and waiting for our food. Two of us had fish, chips and mushy peas, one had sausage and chips and one had shrimp and chips. We were all delighted with the taste - in fact the shrimp eater said they were The Best he had ever had. The proprietor could have been a little more chatty when we arrived but engaged with us after our meal and the atmosphere and surroundings were so unusual we were happy to soak it all in.

We visited one evening after a few aborted attempts.

The food was OK with a very nice welcome but not as good as I assume it was when they had home made chips rather than the frozen ones that we got.

Go anyway as this is a unique experience.

Seems odd to eat English fish n chips in the Caribbean but it works.We didn't use the Bus but had a table by the kitchen.Very clean and the fish was freshly cooked and the batter is nice and light.
Had a couple of drinks while we waited and Perry the owner is very friendly.A very nice meal.

Visited here a couple of times while staying in a villa just opposite. Like everywhere in Antigua it is very expensive compared to UK prices, but the food is freshly cooked and good quality, and the service friendly. We were staying in low season and the place was run by just a single guy. That’s fair enough as there weren’t the customers to warrant more staff. However the food and the experience didn’t quite live up to billing on their website. One of the problems with ordering ‘fish and chips’ is that you can never be sure what type of fish you are going to get. The first time we it was some kind of flat fish, the second something more like haddock. Both though were good. The chips too were fine too but not what I was expecting. They were not chunky and crisp as shown in photos on Tripadvisor, but looked more like frozen French Fries. Maybe this again was because it was low season? Portion sizes are a little on the small side for me, but overall this was a pleasant enough place to eat if you are passing.
