My husband is Jordanian (I'm not). He is a well traveled businessman but they would not let him in because he was wearing traditional clothing! He doesn't drink alcohol - it was me that wanted a beer - and he was treated like a 2nd class citizen. Utterly ridiculous....and so demeaning.

We popped in for dinner and we're glad we did. The food and beer choices were good and the prices weren't over the top. Not the best we had in Aqaba but not too far off.

Liked: the casual quietness and out of the way location. Disliked: a bit hard to spot, you've got with somebody who already knows it.

We liked the location and the decor. This is one of the few restaurants where they serve alcohol. Service was good.

After travelling around Jordan for a week then 3 days stuck in a hotel with Deli belly I was really looking forward to an (alcoholic) pint. Walked in, stood at the bar and got completely blanked by the bar staff, managed to just about get served when we'd discussed trying one of the other 2 bars within 50 feet. The... More

I don't normally go to British pubs when on holiday, but given the lack of alcohol in Aqaba I made an exception! This was a charming place, with decent (if a bit bland) food, and good beer on tap.

A piece of the UK transported to Aqaba in the form of a Coronation Street pub. My husband and I sat outside and had a great night with a mix of international tourists, locals and international workers. Serves local (very good) wine.
