JB's Gastropub

If you want a table at this popular gastropub you’ll need to book in advance. And we’d suggest you do, as it’s one of the best places in the area to watch live sport – thanks to its many TVs and huge projector.

Set at the far end of The Walk, JBR, JB’s Gastropub is nestled behind a hedge just off the main thoroughfare – meaning it’s usually busy, attracting both tourists and JBR residents. And despite newer pubs popping up in the area, the crowd still keeps coming to JB’s, with good reason.

The cute terrace area is a decent spot in winter (with its own TV) while indoors the vibe is always buzzing with chatter and commentary.

The décor is low-key, industrial and cool and we love the hanging filament lighting and quirky drinks bottle soap dispensers in the bathrooms.

There’s a decent selection of hops and short beverages, with a happy hour daily, too.

There are also bucket deals or pint and a platter offers during Premier League matches, while the pub also serves up a roast dinner every weekend. Meanwhile there’s also a Saturday lunch deal that includes a main and three drinks for under Dhs200.

The food menu is cracking too, with everything from grills to burgers, pies and more. Sausage by the metre will appeal to carnivores, while the build your own mac ’n’ cheese is without doubt one of the best in town, deliciously cheesy and indulgent without being overwhelming.

Service can be a little haphazard, but on the whole it’s decent, and with a friendly vibe and decent food and deals this is a top spot for sports-lovers looking for a pint.
