The Underground Pub

Some proper English grub at this award-winning sports bar

Time Out Says

This spot excels at doing the basics right for a sports bar. Plenty of screens: check. Good drinks deals: check. In fact it’s so good that we named it Sports Bar of the Year at our 2018 Music & Nightlife Awards. But does the pub grub live up?

While you may spend a bit of time perusing the menu of British classics (we’re talking steak pies, a full English brekkie et al), there’s one dish that keeps us going back.

The toad in the hole is, by our reckoning, the stand-out option on the menu. Four whopping great sausages perfectly baked into a crispy-on-the-outside-but-soft-in-the-middle Yorkshire pudding, topped with creamy mashed potato and lashings of onion gravy.

It’s a real homely treat and each element balances perfectly together. About halfway through you may consider asking for the rest to take away, but we bury our pride and devour the lot.

If you don’t eat meat, pickings can be a little slimmer – this place is prime for carnivores. A Caesar salad, served with prawns instead of chicken, is not hugely generous in terms of the crustacean, and we’d hope for something a bit more substantial for our Dhs65. It’s an odd contrast to the ginormous toad in the hole, but there are other options such as fish and chips and fajitas.

You’ll go here for the sports, but the food isn’t bad, either.

The bottom line
Hearty grub paired with endless sport.
