Time Out Says

Swanky Gastropub The Eloquent Elephant has gone all-out of late to welcome pubgoers.

The popular pub in Taj Dubai – which is now a two-time winner of our Best Pub Food title – revealed not only a swish new terrace last year (meaning there’s now a smoking area at the venue), but also a vegan menu, so plant-based eaters have more choice.

The new terrace is a top addition –kitted out with vibrant green furniture, to match the foliage, while there are also twinkling hanging lights for a cosy feel. It’s a marvellous place to head after work in cooler weather for a pie and a pint.

Talking of which, don’t miss the pastry-encased portion of the menu. They’re phenomenal. And massive. Two (who really needs more than one pie? Not us, but we’re not complaining) tasty full-on pies – not just lids – come perched upon a mountain of creamy mash and split to reveal a meaty chicken and mushroom interior.

It’s rich, it’s indulgent and it’s thoroughly satisfying.Elsewhere on the menu there are some cracking curries, while the fish and chips is top-notch, too. Sweet tooth? Save room for the baked s’mores brownie.

The new vegan menu includes the Elephant’s Barley Burger, a veggie patty made of barley, carrot and celery, encased in a chia seed bun and a vegan hot dog.

There’s also live sport, ladies’ nights, brunches and a weekly quiz to keep you entertained as you dine.

Food isn’t an afterthought at this pub – it’s a major reason to visit.
