Time Out Says

Growing up in the UK in the 1980s with our parents meant weekend drives into the countryside that always included a desperate search for a pub to stop at for lunch.

We were transported back to those times upon stepping into Sherlock Holmes. Well, almost. We didn’t see any bickering parents, and we’re now old enough to decide what to drink.

This is a British pub steeped in nostalgia. The décor, seating, carpet and aroma all take us back to a simpler time. The crowd seems to be British holidaymakers, who perhaps needed to retreat to somewhere familiar after a day in the souks.

They won’t be disappointed here. Service is excellent, with a friendly hello, a bowl of bar snacks and details of the offers of the day (plentiful and excellent value) forthcoming from the barman.

The usual draught and bottled hops are all here, many shorts are discounted, and there are deals on grape, too.

The music will have you tapping your feet and the TV playing silently in the corner will have you giggling along to Mr Bean-style shows.

Worth a visit after a day sightseeing in Bur Dubai.

The Bottom Line
Great value and full of character.
