Even a first-time visitor to Bert’s Bar, just across the road from Accra Beach in Rockley, Barbados, would somehow know the mint-sucking man in the corner was in charge. Bert exudes that air of polite but firm authority which leaves one in no doubt that this is his domain.
I met Bert when I visited Barbados for the first time in 1985, while watching the mighty West Indies cricket team thrash England at the Kensington Oval. I stayed in one of the chalets behind his bar which he lets out to visitors."
