Had dinner here. It was a slow night in the dining room--little livelier at the bar. The bartender did double duty--was our server as well. He was so friendly and personable. I enjoyed joking around with him. The food was pretty good--recommend the banger and the swordfish here. They were all our of their signature goat curry dish which was... More

This is an English pub style restaurant on the quiet side of St. John's in Coral Bay. They carry the traditional fish and chips served with vinegar and some Indian specialties including chicken tikka curry. Both quite good. The menu is rather limited. It has a limited cocktail selection on their menu, the reason for the average rating, but perhaps... More

Ate here for dinner one night for 5 people. With drinks and automatic 20% tip added "tacky" bill was $268.00! One of the most expensive meals while here and probably out of 7 restaurants we ate at in Coral Bay the least favorite. Had trivia night going on and that was fun. Food was not bad, just not worth what... More

We came to this place, quite accidentally, on St. Patrick's day, so it was a hoppin' place that night. Outside seating where the band was playing was full, but we were able to get a table inside which was fine as we had a child with us. Despite how busy it was, our server was very attentive and was trying... More

Good food, fun atmosphere. Went for dinner on trivia night - goat curry was quite good, strong rum drinks, owners were convivial. Great stop in Coral Bay.

My husband and I visited a few times, it was the best food/value. I enjoyed the rum drinks and the bangers and mash. We also split the baked brie (so good). I don't like seafood but my husband enjoyed the fish special on that evening. We visited again and I had the cottage pie, it is a great portion size.... More

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!

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

Description
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.
