Believe me it is the service that make the place not anything else. The barman was grumpy and unwelcoming! We had our meal and left, food was good. I do not think I will consider this place next time I am in Aqaba.

Meant to feel like a British pub based on the famous soap, Coronation Street. Prices are good, with a varied selection. Just found it too smokey for my liking. Smoking is traditional in most restaurants but makes it unpleasant for the non-smokers, the restaurant smelt of stale cigarettes.

Had beers here twice while on holiday in Aqaba. The food menu is extensive but nothing veggie so didn't eat here. Nice pub-like atmosphere which felt very homey to expat me and the WiFi was good.

We have eaten here twice in 7 days. The fish and chips is a must have, proper chunky chips not those silly skinny things. The fish is very tasty. The second time I had the platter for one, it was huge! I ended up leaveing most of the chips as the fish, prawns, calamari and mushrooms was enough. Make sure... More

I really enjoy my visits to Rovers, the food is very good and it has a great atmosphere, but when it fills up the smoke and noise become a bit overwhelming, on that note the outdoor area in summer is recommended
