Nick Alvis and Scott Price take over The Black Lion in Dubai
Chefs Nick Alvis and Scott Price have taken over The Black Lion at H Hotel, Sheikh Zayed Road.
The pair have stripped back the food menu, offering English pub classics with signatures including sausage rolls with BBQ dip, fish and chips, crushed peas and tartare sauce and hearty beef & Murphy’s pudding with mash and gravy.
Along with their business partner, Viktorija Paplauskiene, the trio behind folly by Nick & Scott have taken inspiration from pubs and hangouts where they spent their time while living in the UK.
Now known as The Lion by Nick & Scott, the traditional brew pub will also be home to live sport, with eight individual screens.
The bar stocks seasonal ales with an array of bottles and drafts on offer at value driven prices, according to a statement, and the interiors have been refreshed with a new colour palate and layout.
"We’ve always wanted to be landlords so when the opportunity to take over The Black Lion came our way, it was something we couldn’t really say no to. Myself and Nick are big sports fans so to combine that with our love of food then it’s the perfect mix," said Price.
Backed by local restaurateur, Gates Hospitality, The Lion by Nick & Scott will be the second venue in the ‘Nick & Scott’ portfolio.
