Trust a man who hosted an English TV show called Sunday Brunch to know a thing or two about the great British lunch. That man, celebrity chef Simon Rimmer, who has been in the business for 27 years, opened his first restaurant in Dubai back in 2014. Since then, it’s become a preferred choice for a roast dinner among home-sick Brits in the city. Served three days a week, the dinner comes with roast potatoes, parsnips, red cabbage, cauliflower cheese, ponchmipe (that’s a Welsh dish of mashed potato and swede, we’ll have you know) and a Yorkshire pudding. Add to that your choice of roast beef sirloin, slow-braised leg of lamb, half roast chicken or nut loaf. Then super-size it, add a bottle of grape, and enjoy the casual yet upbeat atmosphere at this Marina-facing, Pier 7 hotspot.
Dhs119 (regular), Dhs149 (super-size), Dhs120 (to add a bottle of grape). Fri-Sun noon-2am. Pier 7, Dubai Marina (04 422 2328).
