In 1652 the Charter of Barbados was signed in a tavern called Ye Mermaid's
Inn, in the fishing village of Oistins. The charter pledged the islander's
loyal obedience to Cromwell and his Commonwealth Parliament, in return
for self rule and free trade.
Today Oistins is the fishing hub of the south, with a modern fish market.
Land has been reclaimed and a slipway and winch provided to help the local
fishermen get their boats in and out of the water.
Fresh fish can be bought at 4pm when the daily catch is landed.
Bar B-Q Chicken with peas and rice, Macaroni Pie and loads of fresh
vegetables, the choice is yours.
