A proper British pub. That’s what The Rose & Crown sets out to be and, thankfully, it manages to succeed. It has a pool table, a dartboard and tons of big screens. There are proper bar stools and booths, cask hops and books on shelves. There is also a menu that looks like it was brought straight out of a pub in England. Unfortunately, the prices are very much Dubai. We don’t mind that if the food is always excellent, but here it’s inconsistent. On a few occasions we find ingredients substituted for others or missed off completely, which is annoying. The good stuff, though, is really good, especially the pies and burgers. The full English adds bubble and squeak for an extra touch to the usual ingredients and the homemade sausages are excellent. Best of the bunch is the shepherd’s pie.
