We came for the Painkillers - made with Goslings rum, as they are supposed to be, served in a branded tin mug with a Cruzan aged dark rum float. They did not disappoint. I've had a lot of these - probably far too many of them - on the islands over the years, including where they originated on Jost van... More

My partner and I recently visited the island for 5 days & Skippers Brit pub became our "local" for the week. We felt so at home here! The staff was extremely friendly, service was outstanding and the food was delicious. We tried a couple other places but this was our favorite. I loved the goat curry! Ended up having it... More

Visited here only once due to the poor service from a middle aged lady and the presumption that we would give a specific tip (this was added to our bill without being asked). If I had good service it wouldn't be an issue but I didn't, also looking at the reviews there is reference by the owner to a review... More

We stopped in her for lunch and split a swordfish wrap. We had eaten here before when it was Sweet Plantains and were not big fans. We liked this much better. The food and drinks were good. The service was outstanding and bumped my review a little. I was torn between 3 and 4 stars. I would try it again.

A most enjoyable evening, though sad that it was our last night this time on St John. Staff was very accommodating - no room outside at first, so we sat briefly indoors, and when a table freed up they let us have the first one available. Dinners were all very good - two chicken Tikkas, one vegan curry and a... More

Maybe if one just wanted bottled Guiness it would be OK, but the food was dreadfully dull. Both goat curry and vegan curry were flavorless and the lamb stew was uninspired. Not recommended.

We had very high expectations - the menu sounds great and there have been very good reviews. Unfortunately ours is not one of them. We were there on Christmas night - it was one of the only places open in Coral Bay. They did not offer their usual menu (too bad) but rather a special Christmas dinner. That was okay.... More

Visited the Skipper's Brit Pub for dinner on Christmas eve, and knowing this was one of the only restaurants open we expected it to be busy. The folks there were very nice but the service was not great. Took a while to get menu's. After we received the menu's and finally placed our order (maybe 15 min of sitting there)... More

Our family of 5 had Christmas dinner here this year. The food was very good, as were the drinks. However, we did have to wait about 15 minutes for a table and another 10 for menus. They were one of the few places on the island open for Christmas dinner, so I totally understood them being overwhelmed! We weren't in... More

Steve and Adie look forward to welcoming you to their newly renovated British Pub right on the water in Coral Bay. The menu features Skipper's Pub menu (wraps, sandwiches and appetizers) plus a great dinner menu of British food such as Bangers n mash, Cottage Pie, Steak and Guinness Pie, as well as some amazing curry dishes. Walk-ins are always welcome, but it is recommend to call ahead and reserve a table during high season.
