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! The staff was extremely friendly, service was outstanding and the food was delicious. We tried a couple other places but this was our favorite. I loved the goat curry! Ended up having it... More

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

We stopped in her for lunch and split a swordfish wrap. We had eaten here before when it was Sweet Plantains and were not big fans. We liked this much better. The food and drinks were good. The service was outstanding and bumped my review a little. I was torn between 3 and 4 stars. I would try it again.

A most enjoyable evening, though sad that it was our last night this time on St John. Staff was very accommodating - no room outside at first, so we sat briefly indoors, and when a table freed up they let us have the first one available. Dinners were all very good - two chicken Tikkas, one vegan curry and a... More

Maybe if one just wanted bottled Guiness it would be OK, but the food was dreadfully dull. Both goat curry and vegan curry were flavorless and the lamb stew was uninspired. Not recommended.

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.
