For those who like to keep it a little more simple…

There are days that call for fancy restaurants and there are days that call for more chilled vibes, and for some, that means a casual British-style pub. Whilst many of these style of restaurants already exist in Dubai, there are plenty more opening or already open that you need on your radar.

Here are 5 new pubs to check out in Dubai…


Foxglove Dubai Pub Soho Garden


Foxglove recently officially opened right next to Soho Beer Garden complete with a new food and beverage menu and fantastic deals such as happy hours, a ladies’ night and a business lunch. The setting is stunning and certainly reminiscent of a real British pub with warm oak panelling, exposed brick and leather and checked studded seating. There are even mini black street lamps here and there, paying ode to the London of old.

Foxglove, Soho Garden, Meydan, Dubai, open 12pm to 3am daily. @foxglovedxb

The Hidden Hog is the new restaurant, bistro and bar that is open in DIFC. It’s a little more ‘Dubai’ (and European style) than British pub and, amongst European dishes, it will serve up real sausages and bacon. There are plenty of deals including a full English breakfast for Dhs35, business lunch and more.

The Hidden Hog, Gate Village, DIFC, Dubai, open 10am to 3am daily. Tel: (04) 364 0126.
