I had been hearing lots about Mr Toad’s Pub and Kitchen but had not yet been. They just opened four branches in Dubai; DIP, Ibn Batuta, Garhoud and Silicon Oasis all at the Premier Inn.
Mr Toads is exactly what was needed in Dubai, I find that there are so many pubs here that are just too old fashioned or overpriced. There needed to be one that was traditional while being modern and affordable… well it has finally arrived!
Mr Toad’s pub and Kitchen has a traditional menu of good old pub grub. They have lovely simple but inviting decor and a lively atmosphere. It’s a very chilled pub, not pretentious at all and reminds you of your local at home.
I went to try Mr Toad’s pub and kitchen’s festive treats! The selection is small but curated well. I am not usually a Turkey fan however after trying theirs I have become a Turkey lover! I have never liked it because its usually dry and pretty bland but this was well seasoned and juicy. The accompaniments were also delicious -apricot and sage stuffing, chicks in blankets, honey glazed root veggies and a delicious gravy. I also loved the Barley Risotto, its so deliciously creamy and quite rich so probably best to share it. For a sweet ending try the Black Cherry Creme Brulee!
The Festive menu is priced between 35-95dhs, very affordable and great ambience. Try to go on one of their quiz nights on Wednesday for even more fun. They have themed nights almost every day of the week, they do a ladies night on Tuesday where ladies receive a free main course when they purchase a drink. Monday’s are pretty much happy hour all day with free wine and 50% off all food!
