If you’re looking for something to line the stomach or soak up the drink then traditional pub fare is the order of the day.
From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2007
If the Irish Village is the daddy of Dubai’s pubs then Fibber Magee’s is the naughty schoolboy son – always covered in a layer of grime but game for a laugh with a loyal gang of mates to back him up. Tucked away off Sheikh Zayed Road, this back street boozer is not one for those wanting to sample a glass of chilled white wine as they watch the sun go down while mulling over the latest developments on the Dubai financial market.
A lack of windows means the place is perpetually dark and dank, although in Fibbers’ defence, the closed-in feeling helps create a cracking atmosphere inside, especially when football or rugby matches are being shown on the big screen televisions that line the walls. If you’re looking for something to line the stomach or soak up the drink then traditional pub fare is the order of the day – think fish and chips, pie and chips or, er, chips and chips. They are all on the money, but don’t expect any decorative sprigs of parsley or tomatoes cut into funny shapes.
Fibbers has become a firm favourite with thirsty TV sports fans and any over-exuberance is kept in check by the always lovely staff, meaning it is perfect for anyone wanting to sample a quick pie and a pint – although you might not want to wear your best frock.
