But with the restaurant’s location in the
East End of the island, getting there
required some effort.
That all changed in 2006 with the
opening of the South Shore Swizzle
Inn, located in Warwick and in close
proximity to Bermuda’s most popular
beaches. The new location has proven
a hit for visitors and locals alike seeking a refreshing piña colada or basket
of buffalo wings after a morning spent
in the sun and surf.
The menu is a blend of pub favourites and local classics, ranging from a
towering plate of nachos, to their signature fish sandwiches and chowder.
Almost everything is made in-house,
with nightly specials featuring freshly
caught fish and other dishes. The fare
is a reflection of both visitors’ and locals’ tastes, featuring items like conch
fritters, quesadillas, grilled rockfish,
and slowly braised beer ribs.
With a large outside patio, bar, and
dining room, there’s room for more
than a hundred guests at the South
Shore Swizzle and little need for a res-
ervation. Just rock up with your crew,
take a seat, and one of the long-serv-
ing, friendly staff will be with you in no
time. Being so close to the beaches,
there’s no need to worry about a dress
code. The staff are just as laid back as
the customers, and will ply you with
pitchers of rum swizzle if there’s even
a whiff of stress in the air.
The Swizzle Inn is also a great, laid-
back date spot, especially during the
summer months when live entertain-
ment is offered on the patio. If you’re
just out for some drinks, there’s a huge
variety of frozen cocktails on offer,
along with the standard collection of
bottled beers and three beers on tap.
Ultimately, if you’re looking for a
laid back, affordable lunch that may or
may not go deep into the afternoon, fu-
eled by multiple rounds of drinks, you
really needn’t look much further. You’ll
meet plenty of characters while you’re
at it -- locals and tourists alike. There’s
a reason the Swizzle Inn is Bermuda’s
