Fisher Pond Great House: the best Bajan Sunday lunch in Barbados

Having a holiday in Barbados? Then you’ve just got to book Sunday lunch at Fisher Pond Great House – a 350-year-old plantation house in the centre of the island (St John) which has been lovingly restored by former hotelier John Chandler.   

Fisher Pond Great House, Barbados

Make sure you book the Sunday Bajan lunch well in advance, it’s very popular with Barbadians and visitors.

The house is elegantly furnished – tables are set up indoors, in different rooms, and outdoors in the beautiful Barbados tropical gardens.

The Sunday Planter’s Buffet Lunch that John and his wife Rain put on is truly fantastic – a Bajan banquet – catering up to 80 people at exquisitely dressed tables.   

Even Michael Winner raved about the Sunday lunch at Fisher Pond Great House (read Michael Winner’s restaurant review at Times Online) so that’s saying something!  

John, the owner and a real character, has loads of interesting and amusing tales to tell too if you can get him to spill the beans!  

Barbados wedding venue – exotic location for weddings

Full of old world charm Fisher Pond Great House also makes a beautiful and romantic venue for wedding ceremonies which are held either in the colourful tropical gardens or in the antique setting of the plantation house.  

Elegant dining in Barbados

The wedding floral displays, petal-strewn aisle in the garden, and gorgeous settings that John and Rain organise for wedding couples on their special day is extraordinary. The colours of the tropical flowers are AMAZING.  

Fisher Pond Great House just has to be one of the most beautiful and romantic places to get married in Barbados, and definitely one of the best places to eat in Barbados.

Secluded, exclusive & romantic honeymoon hotspot in the Bahamas

Paradise Found

Do you believe in all this ‘paradise’ stuff? I’ve written about numerous romantic honeymoon hotels and destinations, often referring to a ‘honeymoon paradise’. Did I really believe there was such a place as Paradise? Not really. Not until recently that is. 

Then I found it. 

Paradise – MY very own paradise… where the water is so turquoise that photographs of it look as though they have been tinkered with.
