ST. MICHAEL -- Visitors to the 150-year-old converted stables of
the Tyrol Cot
Heritage Village can now dine there at the Old Stables
The restaurant takes its name from the stables that once served
the Tyrol Cot Mansion, built in 1854. It was home to Sir Grantly
Adams, first premier of Barbados, and to Tom Adams, who was the
second prime minister when this island nation gained independence.
The mansion has been fully restored by the National Trust.
The restaurant meets the growing demand for a dining venue at
this location, according to the Barbados Tourism Authority. The
daily menus for lunch and dinner are overseen by chef Elma
Marshall. The restaurant, owned and operated by Corbins Catering,
is also available for private functions.
To celebrate its grand opening, the Old Stables Restaurant will
offer an introductory price of $12.50 for its "Bajan Buffet" lunch,
served every Friday from noon to 2 p.m. The Old Stables Restaurant
and Tyrol Cot Heritage Village are located about 1.5 miles north of
Bridgetown on Highway 2. The Old Stables Restaurant, Phone: (246)
