That wouldn’t count for much, of course, if the rest of the bar wasn’t up to snuff. But thankfully Double Decker provides a solidly satisfying experience, as well as a memorable environment. The service, in particular, is always polite and efficient, even when the bar is close to buckling under the strain of the weekend mob (though we’ve found the size of the crowds to be pretty variable over the past couple of months, so you may have no problems).
The food is far better than you’d expect, especially when you consider it focuses on the British, a notoriously cack-handed bunch when it comes to fine dining. The atmosphere, too, is good on weekends, with some cheesy Anglo-centric tunes providing the backdrop to much happy revelry. Even the workmanlike terrace isn’t a bad place to hang out. Double Decker is never going to be one of Dubai’s classiest venues, but it’s a consistently great pub and has remained a local favourite for years, with good reason.
