The oldest pub in Bermuda -- some 300 years old -- is also the home of the famous Bermuda rum swizzle drink (made with sugar and citrus juice). The pub lies west of the airport, near the Crystal Caves. Thousands of business cards and reams of graffiti cover the walls. The Bermudian magazine voted the meaty Swizzleburger best in Bermuda; other freshly prepared pub favorites include fish and chips, conch fritters, and shepherd's pie. These dishes are at least a notch above typical Bermudian pub grub. At lunch, the Bailey's Bay fish sandwich and onion rings are popular with locals and visitors alike. The larger, more varied dinner menu appeals to many tastes and diets. Pub grub is available for dinner, as is a seafood medley (rockfish, mussels, and shrimp in marinara sauce), the catch of the day, and some tasty Asian curries. Seating is available inside and on the upper and lower patios; upstairs there are also a nonsmoking room and a gift shop. There is an additional location at 87 South Shore Rd., Warwick Parish.
