We had a feeling this would be a bit of a novelty pub, but it's not. It will be our third visit tonight, and one of the reasons we go back is there are other people there!

This is a fantastic place to have a drink or two and a nice dinner. The location is very good, on the first floor of the Gateway shopping centre.

Believe me it is the service that make the place not anything else. The barman was grumpy and unwelcoming! We had our meal and left, food was good. I do not think I will consider this place next time I am in Aqaba.

Meant to feel like a British pub based on the famous soap, Coronation Street. Prices are good, with a varied selection. Just found it too smokey for my liking. Smoking is traditional in most restaurants but makes it unpleasant for the non-smokers, the restaurant smelt of stale cigarettes.

Had beers here twice while on holiday in Aqaba. The food menu is extensive but nothing veggie so didn't eat here. Nice pub-like atmosphere which felt very homey to expat me and the WiFi was good.
