Venture to this English-themed watering hole any day of the week and enjoy selected drinks for Dhs27 from noon until 8pm (though we don’t advise taking advantage of this offer for the duration each day). The pub quiz on Tuesday draws a good crowd.

Best bar in UAE. Particularly under the management of Loyd, Manager of Nelsons Pub. The bar staff are very young and attractive and are very hygienic. Rated high for their virtue. Loyd is very generous and kind heated to allow all nationalities. You won't feel like you are in UAE or in UK because of Loyd, the manager. A must visit place for every one visiting UAE.

I would not sayn this is a typical english pub nor comes near one. Its a more a modern bar, looks more like a franchise outlet than anythin else. The specials are pretty good though I would advise those drinking shots or measures of whiskey to stand by the bar n get em yourself. I think they have a different perception on shot measures.
The staff are okay though seem confused at times, tips are included in the price but you always get that waiter "look" if you don't. so tip to secure service on your next visit. The crowd thus far has sucked in all honesty...but will give it another bash tonight "saturday"...fingers crossed

We have been in Dubai for 8 years and this experience was an all time low. There were four of us in our party and each of us received the worst service we have ever had in Dubai - that's REALLY bad. Managers were just as horrible as their staff in customer service. The food was cold by the time it came, service almost non existent, orders were wrong, wine glasses sat empty for long periods of time. It was disastrous!!
