Double Decker

Two-tiered English pub with food and football

  • Double Decker
From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2008

Double Decker is a bar themed around London transport and celebrates everything that’s great about the British capital. From the grandiose coats of armour adorning the walls to the hordes of sunburnt punters parading around, it’s a home away from home for Brits.

Thankfully, the menu is slightly more diverse. Sure, there’s (debatably) the best of British food, including a variety of pies, fish and chips and rack of lamb, but there’s also an around-the-world section where you can broaden your culinary horizons

For starters, the army of succulent coiled grilled shrimps and curly fries make for a good choice, while the chewy deep-fried camembert both pleasantly challenges the jaw and soaks up the many beers you can choose from.

With decent live music during the week, a mainstream DJ and karaoke at weekends, coupled with consistently nifty service, Double Decker may not be the plushest place in town, but its complete lack of pretension is strangely attractive, when contrasted to the fancy five-star Dubai norm.

    Would you go back to this restaurant?
    On Saturday 9th May, I made a booking for brunch at “Double Decker” on the following Friday and received a text message confirmation that my booking had been accepted. On Thursday 14th May (note: the evening before I was due to attend the brunch – NOT at the time of booking), “Double Decker” called me to tell me that they were cancelling my booking on the basis that “they only accept reservations for a minimum of 3 people”. I was invited to go along as a walk-in and wait around to see if they could fit me in,

    I am SERIOUSLY offended by this turn of events because:

    a) It was a lie. (A previous reservation by telephone for two people had been accepted with no problem and no mention of a ‘minimum of three’ policy).

    b) The message was that, as a single individual, I wasn’t actually welcome at “Double Decker” but would be tolerated as a fill-in to make up numbers and help them generate their target revenue

    c) I strongly suspected that I had been ‘bumped’ in favour of a larger group and – you’ve guessed it! – more money

    d) It might have taken a little more thought, but “Double Decker” COULD have accepted bookings from lone individuals and simply asked them whether they minded sharing a table with a minimum of three other lone individuals. (Alone in a pub, it is nice to have someone to talk to and, facing each other across a table, people invariably find something to talk about).

    So folks – a heads-up. If you’re alone in Dubai, “Double Decker” considers you a second-rate customer and probably won’t allow you to enjoy brunch with them.
