My wife and I had a great meal here during our recent stopover in Dubai at the Arabian Courtyard. While our orders tended to be of the Western style we could not fault the quality of the food nor the quantity provided. Above all though we felt genuinely welcome in this English pub and had a relaxed, pleasant evening enjoying... More

We were staying at the Arabian Courtyard Hotel so ate here on one of our stop over nights and it was really lovely food and good value too.

We had lunch here before going on our half day City Tour. The service was very good and my Club Sandwich was excellent. They were able to accommodate us within the time frame we had before the tour. The tasteful decor was set in the period of Sherlock Holmes and we felt we had stepped back in time.

We didn't eat but the food had a normal english pub selection, pizza, pasta, burgers etc. Happy hour offers you 20% your drinks and is between 12pm-8pm but at £9 a drink its... More

On a short stay in Dubai while staying at the Arabian Courtyard Hotel, we stopped in to this rather dark and smoky pub for a end of day drink. The ambience was OK with a wide selection of beers, reasonable prices , good service but too much smoke to tarry too long over drinks.

Staying in The Creek

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.
