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.

As a Yanq, in Aqaba, I needed beef and beer. Three of us, accompanied by Jordanian Rami and Huw, Welsh divemaster, we went to Rovers. Good beer, good beef, friendly, great dessert!

Being one of two pubs in Aqaba, Rovers is worth a visit and if you enjoy a beer or two there is no other place to be. Prices are not terrible, but alcohol ain't very cheap in Jordan. Service is good, everyone here speaks good English. The scenery is nice and the atmosphere is that of a typical pub. Drinks... More
