THE GRAND OLD PUB OF ABU DHABI STILL SHOW IT’S CLASS A typical pub, great for hanging out with friends for a beer, sports, and good music. Good atmosphere and very friendly staff. Drinks were quick in coming despite the numbers there and well served as per the request; the bar has a decent menu with reasonable prices. Food selection... More

Dark and gloomy, but cool. Was catching up with an old friend and had tons of stories to exchange without being uncomfortable by the surrounding. Now this is the place for that. Service is good. Drinks are at a reasonable price. Happy hour throughout the afternoon to the evening. A nice English pub to hangout.

I used this place from January until July this year (2016) As I was working in Abu Dhabi on single status it was a place I could go to on my own and not be bothered by certain individuals from the darker side of town. Its an old place and has probably served many thousands of expats over the years.... More

Following the style of English pubs, the Captain's Arms is a good place to visit with friends for that end of day bevy. There is a wide range of beers on offer from around the world including Irish favourites such as Kilkenny, serve on tap. Recommended as a place to go on your way out to a meal.

Themed English pub in a very humid environment, lots of fun with decent food too. Nothing too ostentatious, which can make a welcome change in this city.

The bar resembles a small English pub inside, be prepared for a smokey atmosphere and pretty good staff on the whole. There is a large outside seating area more suitable for the winter weather.

You feel like entering an hash try, and the aircon is not working apart a couple of removable units placed around the table. Service is slow and offered without passion or interest: why are they still open? Last time for me.
