    Great food and service
    we recently stayed at the Grotto Bay Resort and walked over several times to enjoy the food at the Swizzle Inn, and also getting take out. The food was excellent each and every time, as was the service too. The fish sandwiches were really good, highly recommend. Oh and the famous Rum Swizzle very tasty as well.

    Quirky and fun
    A quirky place, renown for where the swizzle cocktail was developed. Inside is quite dark , and the place is covered in random stickers. The staff are excellent, very attentive and helpful. The food is ok ( I think I may have been harsh with my review - it’s 4 stars)

    Basic loud bar.
    Not sure what all the fuss is about. We sat outside, as the inside is dark. Unfortunately, it's located on a busy road, with constant traffic. My husband loved his vegan lasagna (props to the chef!). We just had drinks besides that. The clientele seemed to be quite loud. Don't go here if looking for a quiet night.

    A Swizzle with booze in
    We heard that this was the place to go for a real Rum Swizzle rather than the ones produced in local bars and hotels. We were not disappointed it was a belter, real taste and real booze. A bit of a noisy road if you sit outside, but that's a small price. The food we had was good and the draught beer was excellent 32 north a real IPA and a good ABV

    Great meal and rum swizzles!
    We had a great dinner on the top deck! The rum swizzles were terrific! We got the grilled fish sandwich and burger. We also shared the peanut butter ice cream pie. We loved everything and the server was attentive as well! Definitely go there when you’re in Bermuda! 🥰🍹🐠

    It’s nice enough
    Title says it. Good rum swizzle and very nice service. Excellent desserts! However, I definitely wouldn’t make a special trip way out here just to have a drink at the home of the rum swizzle - you can get the same thing anywhere.

    The Frozen Swizzle is a winner!
    Great American and English pub food. They have the best American style pizza and burgers we have had outside of the States. The frozen swizzle is not to be missed. We stayed at Grotto Bay and went to Swizzle Inn for dinner / lunch a few times. The servers remembered our drink after 1 visit. Great service and friendly staff, even when they were slammed during trivia night.

    If you are in the area, this is worth a stop!
    We had a simply perfect day in Bermuda! We started our day at the nearby Crystal Caves, swim at Blue Hole Park, and then had the most wonderful lunch at the Rum Swizzle Inn. We had a half pitcher of the famous drink, and it was delicious! The food was good, the service was great, and we really enjoyed this spot on our trip! They have sandwiches salads and there’s something for everyone here! My son really love the nachos! I had the Caesar salad with shrimp. If you’re looking for a casual place to have lunch, stop on by.

    Delicious Food
    After visiting the Crystal cave, the next stop should be The Swizzle Inn. This English pub offers delicious food and spiked drinks that help everyone deal with the heat. We had buffalo chicken wings and fish and chips. We also tried the original rum swizzle. The staff is friendly, parking area if you drive.

    A fun place with great food!
    This iconic tavern was a must-see for us as we suspected my parents had frequented it often during the two years they lived in Bermuda during the early 1960s. The food was amazingly good which isn't usually the case when a restaurant is an icon and a must-see. Our waiter told us stories about the old Navy base which I enjoyed hearing as it helped me round out my parents' experiences way back then. He even went out on the street and flagged down a taxi for us - not being able to rent a car in Bermuda as a traveler makes it always interesting as to how you're going to get to your next destination.

Oh to be back to the Swizzle Inn (and Swagger Out). It's been too long so to make up for lost time, we visited twice. Love the food here. Love the cocktails here. Sat on the patio both times (although the second time was behind some screening as it was a tad windy the week we visited).

Overordered on the food (won't do that again). If you are ordering classic fingers foods and order a combo of 3, make sure you let them know as at the second visit we ordered 3 and ended up with 3 proper portions (first time we had a smaller serving and was charged appropriately).

Service was as fab as always.

We brought the in-laws with us on this visit so they could experience the true Rum Swizzle and as I brought a pen with me, I got the mother in law to leave her mark.

Don't stop to think about whether to visit, just go. You won't regret it. But book a table or you may not get seated.

Stopped by the Swizzle Inn for a quick lunch as we explored the Crystal Caves and had a great lunch. My wife and I had 2 different fish sandwiches - the Blue Hole Wahoo sandwich and the Bailey's Bay Fish sandwich...both were very good but the star of the show was the pitcher of the Orignial Rum Swizzle which was SOOOO much better than any other rum swizzle we had on the island....definitely worth the stop.

This a fun place to visit- - particularly if you love drinking Rum Swizzles. This place has both a fun exterior & a wacky interior where you can write on the walls.
Their Rum Swizzles were twice as strong as the ones offered at our resort so be careful if you are driving a scooter on the wrong side of the road for the first time. Go in the evening when things liven up a lot !

This little gem is located within walking distance from the resort, and in my humble opinion, it has much better fare than the resort itself. Everything we tried here,( we visited twice) was excellent. I would recommend the mussels in the tomato sauce, however, I don't think you can go wrong here. Also, try a pitcher Swizzle cocktail..........yummy!

We finished up a visit to the Crystal Caves when we emerged needing some lunch. We walked about 5 minutes from the caves and we stumbled on this gem.
The staff were outstanding and very friendly. Our server recommended the Rum Swizzle and a Dark and Stormy when we asked what we should have to drink. Both were outstanding! As was the lunch. The grilled wahoo sandwich was stacked high with fish and the sauce on it was delicious.
I meant to eat here again during our visit but we never made it back. Very sad. Next time.
This was one of those places that just make you happy when you stumble upon it on your journey.

Excellent food. Large portions *I could not finish all of mine* Had the delicious fish. Bill had the Swizzle burger and it filled him up and he could not finish the fries. Fun atmosphere, just as written up in the magazines and ads. Our first night dinner in Bermuda was here

Swizzle Inn is known as the birthplace of the rum sizzle (circa 1932) so that is what I tried on my first time visit to Bermuda. So refreshing and not too sweet, loved the old school pub vibe and warm hospitality from every single one of the staff. Also loved the eco friendly no plastic straws/ paper straws only on request policy. Kudos for being responsible to planet earth. It was also a super convenient stop en route to the Crystal Cave, the public bus #11 from Hamilton drops you off right in front of the Inn, and then you’d just walk across the street to Bailey’s Ice Cream where there is a footpath to the cave visitor center.

One of the great Bermuda experiences. THE place to have a Swizzle rum drink on the island - sit on the balcony and watch the traffic whiz by. We had a pitcher (or was it two) - happily the bus stop is right in front of the building. Would not try a moped after stopping here. Place has been serving the same recipe for years; the building has the graffiti etc to prove it. Nachos are plentiful and tasty.
