“Great setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

This is a great place to visit for an after work drink. Sit outside on picnic tables and enjoy a good pint of British beer and some very good pub food or pizza. The picnic tables are set out on the lawn which is surrounded by a few restaurants and trees which are actually full of birds. Probably the only place in Abu Dhabi where you can hear birds chirping. Highly recommended if you want some time outside in the company of expats without air conditioning.

“Good beer”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

The inside bar is a bit dingy but you have the option of sitting outside at tables with bech seating, which makes for a reasonably pleasant setting. The drinks are of a good standard and the food, which is real pub food, is OK

“Best Fish & Chips in Abu Dhabi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

I visit the Captains on my weekend trips to Abu Dhabi. Good pint of beer and definitely the best "original" british fish & chips in the City. Well worth a visit. If you're a Brit, it's got to be on your "do it" list.

“Good Food And A Nice Outdoor Area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

Visited here on a saturday afternoon. Large outdoor seating area in the garden area. Seems to be the place for expats and holiday makers alike for an afternoon drink and bite to eat outside in the sun. Prices were the going rate for food and drink. Food service was a little slow on my last visit but it was quite busy at the time I arrived.
If you are looking for a place with a decent beer garden/terrace in the tourist area of Abu Dhabi this was the best I have come across in my 5 visits to the city.
