The owner , Sue , is very charming and makes you feel comfortable at once. This is one of Dar's hot spots and is packed to capacity on weekends. Good English fare with generous portions. Value for money if you are looking for a pub feel.

...I don't eat normally but having a feeling like being in UK and actually being in Africa - I had to order it and I had never a better fish and chips anywhere including UK !!!

I went here this evening for a pizza which I always enjoy. I was told the Garden Bar was closed, so I would have to eat in the pub restaurant. So far no problem. Then when I ordered pizza I was told I could only have it in the totally characterless Sports Bar. Result: I went to Zuane for a... More

This is a great English style pub in an upmarket part of Dar. I was not expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. There is a very nice ambiance inside but I preferred the outdoor 'beer garden'. The area is spacious, relaxing, and each table is sheltered by a large canopy which lends to a not too sweltering experience whilst eating.... More

Popped in here during a work trip. Neither loved nor hated it. It's a solid location to grab a decent bite (British food, I believe) and talk to some other expats in town. It's easily within walking distance from the Slipway or the Sea Cliff Hotel as long as you're not offended by walking more than half a mile. :)

Eat out back in the patio area. The beer is good, the food is good, the decor is really fun. The lamb and fish and chips are delicious and they grill lots of stuff that smells incredible.

After hearing so much about this place.. I finally got to check it out and had my first Mac and Cheese dish since leaving the states. They have all kinds of beers, the beer garden atmosphere is wonerful, and the music was on point. They were actually playing old school vinyl. Definitely check this place if you are in Dar... More

They serve good fish and chips, and now with the garden extension you could even enjoy your beers out at the garden in the evenings. They play English Premier League games here top during the season and the crowd back at the game room is amazing.
