Swizzle Inn Bermuda Pub & Restaurant$$, British & Bermudian Cuisine
Located at the Bailey’s bay near Crystal Caves
, Swizzle Inn Bermuda is the oldest pub in the island, opened in 1932 and set up in a 17th century roadside house. It is run by the Correia family through generations. Swizzle Inn is known to have created island's famous drink, The Rum Swizzle
. It’s a mix of Goslings Black Seal Rum, Gold Rum, orange & pineapple juices, and bitters. I found Rum Swizzle fairly strong, however noticed the islanders taking pitcher full of this drink :-)
The restaurant here offers British and Bermudian dishes. As you enter Swizzle Inn, there are thousands of business cards and graffiti pasted all over the walls. It's customary to leave your business card or scribble your name on the pub's colorful walls. The furniture in the pub have a rustic look. The guest book dates back from 1942.
The Bermudian magazine rated the swizzleburger, a bacon cheese burger made at Swizzle Inn, as the best in Bermuda. Serving primarily pub fares, some of the freshly prepared favorites include fish & chips, conch fritters, shepherd's pie etc. These items are a notch above typical Bermudian pub grub.

The Bailey's Bay Fish Sandwich and onion rings at Swizzle Inn are excellent and served during lunch time. The fish sandwich having a large portion is made of white toasts stuffed with battered local fish fillet, melted cheese, tartar sauce, lettuce and tomato.
There are more varieties of food served during dinner though. You get the seafood medley (rockfish, mussels, and shrimp in marinara sauce), catch of the day, and some tasty Asian curries. Barbecues with ribs, steaks, and seafood are prepared on every Friday and Saturday.
There are regular nighttime entertainment in the pub including live bands and trivia nights. There are special parties and celebrations held on St. Patrick’s Day and Thanksgiving Day. The on-site gift and souvenir shop Swagger Out Gift Shop is quite popular with both visitors and locals. You can also buy all these items through the pub's website.
