About The Sportsman’s Arms
The Sportsman’s Arms is Abu Dhabi’s only true family-friendly gastropub, taking inspiration from the Irish heritage of Cork and Boston’s finest dining scene. Located on the grounds of Zayed Sports City, this American- Irish restaurant offers refined cuisine, an impressive array of craft beers, unique wine list, exclusive Irish whiskeys and is the only restaurant in the UAE to house Boston’s Sam Adams beer – true to its American roots.
With a soft play area for the kids on the Family Terrace, as well as the al fresco Jack’s BBQ Terrace, The Sportsman’s Arms is the ideal place for lunch with the family, after work drinks with friends, and an all-around good night out for watching sports. The gastropub offers classic Boston inspired hearty food, home-made using the freshest ingredients from 8am until late, serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and a famous traditional American weekend roast.
Launched in September 2016, The Sportsman’s Arms is already a favourite at most regional awards, having most recently won ‘Family Restaurant of the Year’ from Time Out Abu Dhabi this year, plus ‘Highly Commended Pub of the Year’ at Time Out Abu Dhabi’s Music and Nightlife Awards 2016. The gastropub has also been nominated for the ‘Favourite Pub Grub’ category by What’s On Abu Dhabi Dining Awards, as well as for two categories – ‘Casual Dining’ and ‘Family Dining’ – for Food and Travel Arabia GCC Awards 2016. The American-Irish venue was a nominee under the Best Newcomer category at FACT Dining Awards earlier this year.
