“History and a nice lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

We visited here and had a lovely time. The house is quite eerie as so well preserved. We also had a lovely carribean lunch afterwards.

“Interesting old house”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

This is a nice step back in time. The interior of the building has numerous antiques. Worth visiting, if you have some extra time. They also serve a Bajan buffet lunch.

“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

We went there during a tour around the island; we had a little tour of the house upon arrival and then we had lunch there (buffet). The place is nice, it gives you an idea of how was life back then in Barbados, but it wasn't really special, neither was the food. Go if you feel like, but it isn't a "must do".

“Interesting tour, lovely lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

We came for a short visit en route back to the airport before returning to the Uk. The tour was interesting (although very hot inside) but it was nice to cool down for lunch outside under the big tree with monkeys in it.

Lunch was a buffet, lovely fresh salads, flying fish and a variety of stews, all of which went down well with a little bit of hot sauce!

“Good lunch buffet in St. Philip Barbados”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

They have a very good lunch buffet at this old plantation house and you can even stroll the grounds and inside the house afterwards...it's a very nice (relatively inexepensive) lunch option after a morning of touring Barbados...
