Tyrol Cot Heritage Village opens Old Stables eatery

ST. MICHAEL -- Visitors to the 150-year-old converted stables of the Tyrol Cot

Heritage Village can now dine there at the Old Stables Restaurant.

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.
