“Rotten draft beer!”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

The draft Amstel Light was discusting, and the Guiness borderline... Food between poor and average. Staff Ok if you deal with seniors. Serves porc. Stick to the other pubs in the larger hotels in town.

“Far from Irish!”
Reviewed November 7, 2013 via mobile

This Pub is decorated with an Irish Bar theme, and that's about as Irish as it gets! The food served is anything but Irish. I tried the Chicken Tikka curry and soon found out why the Irish are not renowned for this dish - far too much salt. In fact it was verging on being disgusting! My wife had better luck with her Fish & Chips (always thought the English were known for this dish?). This was well cooked, a reasonable portion size and enjoyed (wish I'd chosen this option!).
Bar Staff were about as Irish as Omani Dates. Still, they were polite, attentive and a credit to the establishment.
Lastly, Guinness obviously doesn't travel well to the Middle East, either that or the pipes weren't flushed very well when they were cleaned. Not a pleasant taste, and nothing like the taste of Guinness in Ireland.
Will I go back? Yes, I live in Muscat and the choice of Bars is limited. Will I eat there again? Yes, but not the Chicken Tikka!!!
