Aside from rum, if you’re looking to drink something softer than the traditional choice is Barritt’s Bermuda Stone Ginger Beer, which has been refreshing Bermudans since 1874. You can also find great coffee at Devil’s Isle Coffee, where the beans are hand-roasted and blended on a small scale in order to bring out the best flavours.
For those looking to sample Bermuda’s contribution to the craft beer scene, you should make a visit to the Frog & Onion Pub, home to Dockyard Brewing Co. I’d recommend trying the Somers Amber Ale, a lovely crisp beer named after the island’s founder, Sir George Somers. This is also a wonderful place for trying some pub favourites, such as bangers and mash and a Sunday Roast, made the Bermudan way.

Hamilton Princess & Beach Club not only offers fantastic accommodation, but excellent dining at its renowned restaurant, Marcus’, named after its world-class chef Marcus Samuelsson. Not only does it boast a spectacular waterfront setting, but some of Bermuda’s most heavenly food. Fish Chowder bites are a particular highlight of the menu, based on the island’s signature dish but reimagined in croquette form and combining scallops, snapper, chorizo and spices. Fired until golden and served with rum-infused aioli, they are simply delicious. Other delights include Oysters with Black Rum Mignonette, Grilled Bermuda Onion, and Jerk Pork Belly.
