St. Andrews

Victorian-styled Scottish pub that tries to look traditional Reviews

This outlet is closed for the duration of Ramadan. Please check for updated opening hours after the Holy Month.
St Andrew’s sits on the ground floor of Rydges Plaza, in among the clutter, traffic, dust and dizzy pace of Satwa. It makes the surprise of finding a quintessentially English boozer more of a full-blown shock when you turn off the marbled corridor and find yourself in its cramped, but nonetheless, comfortable, homely surroundings. Don’t expect anything too sophisticated. But if what you’re after is a British local (complete with living-room wall paper and crisps) then this could be just the place for you. Or take your drinks and sit by the pool, which is, handily, just outside.

You forgot to mention the outside area next to the swimming pool - great as the winter rolls in, and perfect for a drink before you head up stairs for something to heat.

The snug is as it sounds unassuming and relaxed. Two big screens make it possible to watch any sport, but it's not a sports bar. This is more of an English pub with slightly tired looking men having a quick one on the way home. It's not fancy, but I like it.
