nice atmosphere

Dim surroundings, nice atmosphere, good selection of beers. We gave a slight minus for the menu, since only some of the food was available before 19.00. After that the selection would have been wider, but being hungry we had found another place before that.

Had a beer here one night while staying at the adjoining hotel Arabian Courtyard. The staff was great and friendly. They have a nice beer and liquor selection. I never looked at wine though. They do have a menu but I also didn't look at this either. The place has a sports pub feel to it. There are TV's with... More

The ambience of the place is lovely and I am a bit partial but I loved the place more than I imagine and can't talk negative about it.

Whilst staying at the Arabian Courtyard we ate at the on site Sherlock Holmes pub on two evenings. The staff are super friendly, and seemed to be getting to know us. Football matches and cricket were on on the big screens, but seems they cover a number of sports, not a full on sports bar, but the screens are there.... More

We went to the The Sherlock Homes English Pub because a friend of ours said it was the dodgiest little place to find women of the evening. We were not looking for women of the evening, but his stories were too funny to not check out. Instead we found a cool quiet, dark little oasis away from the hubbaloo of... More

More English than many pubs in England. Does a great Steak and Kidney pie, serves Fosters Lager and other local and international beers. Cricket on the TV! Live bands on some nights. Helpful, friendly smiley staff. Wish it was my local.......

Really nice pub atmosphere with friendly staff and customers when I visited as a solo traveler. Good house band also. Just bear in mind that smoking is allowed in the bar, quite unusual if you are used to UK and most of Europe.

Neighborhood Profile
The Creek
The smell of frankincense hangs thick and heavy in the air, waves lap gently at jetties, and market traders call to passing tourists. The creek, originally the place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily recognizable with its iconic wind towers, the original air conditioning. Home to the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding and the Dubai Museum, the old buildings also house a range of cafes, shops and art galleries. Often called “the real Dubai,” this is a wonderful place to lose yourself before catching an abra across the creek to the spice souk, where your senses will be overwhelmed with tastes, smells, and sounds.
