Food and drink
Open from 2pm to late night, Rockin’ Chair’s menu suits any hour of the day; the small but perfectly formed menu serves nothing but simple, tasty Caribbean food such as plantains, jerk chicken, oxtail and really fluffy peas and rice.
A sign of a good Caribbean restaurant has to be the quality of their jerk seasoning. Their chicken is perfect – not too sweet, not too spicy and satisfyingly sticky. Looking for a more wholesome brew? Head for the Caribbean soup, but watch out for the dumplings – they take over the bowl!
Memorably mellow; the locals chatter and giggle at the bar as dub and reggae music eases away in the background.
Relaxed and friendly. Rockin Chair is just as much a bar as it is a restaurant but that doesn’t detract from their attentive service.
Rockin’ Chair is just east of the centre in Riverside, a five minute walk of the station or stadium.
