Residents of Montego Bay often make the 45km (28-mile) drive out here along the A1 just to sample the ambience of old Jamaica. This well-recommended restaurant and sports bar, with a veranda overlooking the lagoon, is housed in what was originally a private clubhouse for the aristocrats of nearby Trelawny. (The furniture here may remind you of a stage set for Night of the Iguana.) Menu items usually include local fish dishes, such as snapper or kingfish. Other specialties include three different lobster dishes, three different preparations of shrimp, three different conch viands, fried rice, and pork chops. The food is just what your mama would make -- if she came from Jamaica. And the waters of the lagoon contain a rare form of phosphorescent microbe which, when the waters are agitated, glows in the dark. Ask about evening booze cruises, which cost US$20 (£10) per person, including one drink, where you can observe this phenomenon. Departures are nightly at about 7pm.
