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 tartare 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.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

Attracted by the Underground style sinage and the London bus on the side road. Food was OK but not your greasy cod an chips from the east end.

Great fish and chips and great ambiance! Interesting place and definitely makes for an interesting dining experience. Make sure to get a drink recommendation from the waitress. They make a very good rum drink.

“Friendly service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Shell's was amazing for dinner. In out group, we had the mix, the chicken, a fish and chips and the fried pickles. All were AMAZING. The batter was perfect and not too greasy.

We tried to go in Thursday night (walking along an unlit road through some fields-bats, potholes and all to find them closed. There was a great pizza place next door that we went to instead, using a taxi for the return trip.

Overall a great experience. Iroy and Bev made all the difference.

“DO NOT MISS!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

What a great meal. Some of the BEST fish and chips ever. It was a rainy day so we sat inside double decker bus while we ate and chatted with the owner. He is Austrian and his wife is Hungarian and they know how to make fish and chips!!! Lovely people - great food!
