Nice garden, and live music during winter months. The hotel has a few restaurants all serving in the garden. Captain's Arm is a traditional English pub with an old fashioned bar and dark seating areas. Smoking is allowed inside and there is no restrictions. There are however plenty of tables outside that you can sit and be served. The fish and chips served here is excellent. Atmosphere is very relaxed and informal. Many expats gather here after work to meet and unwind.

The Manager in particular was most attentive and charming with friendly, helpful staff and the food was simply delicious. The interior was a little dark but the fare more than compensated for that. My husband and I have no hesitation recommending this eatery. Nina and Stuart McBeth, Bonnie Scotland.

Went with my colleagues for a meal and drink. The atmosphere is great, the service is good and the food is great. The ambiance makes it a great place to have a business meeting or just a friendly meeting.

It's nothing like an English pub and fails on so many levels.

Obviously a local hangout for ex-pats who were brash and loud, shouting across the bar to other regulars, good natured banter is fine but this was over the top. I was surprised by the extent of smoke in here too - not used to that anymore in the UK and it was enough to see me beat a hasty retreat after just one pint.

I won't be returning - a miserable experience.

This British type pub is set in the corner of the Meridian complex, if is one of my favourite haunts when in Abu Dhabi. The choice of beers is very good along with wines and spirits,,,wine appears to be expensive out here,seating is provided both in doors and out doors We enjoy the out door garden the best , around twilight time a vast amount of birds seem to come home to roost in the garden trees giving an unusual pleasant sound for a mid city hotel. Food is always served promptly and is of good quality.We shall most certainally return here again.
