Welcome to Kingston!
IT’S MORE THAN A co-incidence that the Scott Arms happens to be in Kingston… During the Summer months, the Jerk Shak opens its doors in the pub’s garden, serving up a feast of Jamaican Caribbean cuisine to the gentle, warm sounds of Bob Marley, Toots and the Maytals, Freddie McGegor and a host of reggae and calypso tunes.
There really isn’t anything to beat sitting outside in the sun, drinking a cool lager or a tumbler of mango juice and tucking in to a plate of jerk chicken, curry goat, rice and peas, callaloo, patties, akee and saltfish, all cooked and served by the Scott Arms’ very own answer to the I-Threes. In the winter Nicky organises Caribbean Cuisine Nights to bring a taste of the sun to those dark, cold nights: keep an eye on our Facebook page for dates.
Co-owner Nicky originally hails from Jamaica, and she brings the best family traditions to serving genuine Caribbean dishes, loved by old and young alike. The Jerk Shak is open most weekends between June and September (weather permitting), and also for special events.
