This has a nice deck overlooking the gap, so you can do a little people watching as you eat/drink. This was the best oxtail I've ever had. The indoor area is spacious with large bar and floor area, and live bands on many occasions.

Stumbled across this place and the band was awesome! The bouncers so search you but no biggie and nice to know they take safety seriously. I have no idea what the food and drink are like but would go back to try both in the...More

There was a guy on the front saying he was security & we had to be searched to enter. I don't think it was appropriate that he wanted to search 2 respectable couples in there early fifties ,who were dressed up. This was a Wednesday...More

We visit Barbados every year and always frequent Jamm Inn. It is one of the busiest bars in the Gap with live music and happy hour. The only problem with this place is the staff. They are so unfriendly and the bouncers are the worse...More

The food was average. The service was slow considering we were the only people there. Waiters were not very attentive to us. Drink specials at night are not bad. Some nights there is nightlife like karaoke.

If you are visiting St Lawrence Gap, The Old Jamm Inn in the best place for cheap beer and snacks with the best live reggae bands in town. Relaxed and welcoming!

We ate at the Old Jamm Inn for dinner one night. Nice view overlooking St. Lawerence Gap to take in the nightlife. Food was just ok, nothing great, service was pretty good.

Sorry to be so long in responding. The Old Jamm Inn isn't really the place for calypso, more rock. I can't think of anywhere locally but sure if you google it you'll find somewhere on the south coast. Good luck. Ged x

I've just returned from another fabulous trip to Barbados and I have to say that it was far busier than previous trips. We stayed at The Southern Palms and it was extremely busy, not sure whether it was full but we got talking to a couple who had to book alternative accomodation for the first 2 nights of their holiday as they were unable to get a room at SP. Walking up and down the Gap during the day seemed busier than in the past as well. I've often walked up and down and have only seen...More

p_buxton Glad to see you had another fantastic trip to Barbados. Several hotels are reporting occupancy above 80% and flights from the UK have been arriving full over the last three days in particular. I also agree that the Gap seems more lively than it was a few weeks ago. Hopefully this continues. Regards
