Tiny Bites: A Family Meal British Style At Pots, Pans & Boards

EatPost Category - EatEat - Post Category - Eating OutEating Out

The ideal place for big families and large groups of friends – with its large communal wooden tables, Pots, Pans & Boards is all about sharing great food in a laid-back fashion, family style. We love.

The occasion:

Is it just me or is this the season you crave a good Sunday Saturday roast?!  Looking for that authentic perfectly cooked British meal? Well Michelin star chef Tom Aikens has setup a wonderful restaurant, Pots, Pans and Boards right on the beach in JBR offering all of the classics from Roast beef to fish & chips, pies to ribs and everything in between (including a breakfast menu that we’re desperate to try next).

The Venue:

Located on JBR walk (near the playground), this relaxed modern venue is ideal for big groups and families – did we mention they have a kid’s corner filled with toys?!! Yes you can enjoy a meal while the kids play in a closed off area of the restaurant where you can keep an eye on them and still have a wonderful view of the beach! I hear they even have board games for the grownups!

The vibe:

A little bit of the UK here in Dubai with a chilled out fun vibe and happy staff who were great with the kids! This spacious restaurant can accommodate any party size and those big buggies too.


The Food:

Not only does Pots Pans & Boards do amazing roasts but they also have some other classics you may be craving… proper fish & chips, shepherd’s pie, steak and chips… and your children will also get a great healthy meal at a temperature they can eat straight away! No blowing on the food for half an hour Mamas, hooray!

Everything we ordered was delicious and the quality and presentation was perfect!

Room for improvement:

Nothing! If you’re looking to enjoy your food as a family then Pots Pans & Boards have thought of it all.


What we loved:

The quality of the food, and coming away knowing your child has had a proper healthy meal – and Mummy has had an amazing banoffee pie! It’s also in a great location so once you’ve finished your meal you can head off to the park with the kids or to the arcade and burn off of the yummy puddings! Will definitely be back for more.

'To all the moms out there, I was playing for you, and I tried...I just feel like telling all the moms, I had such a long struggle to come back and it was really difficult, and honestly I feel like if I can do it, they can do it. I'm just that person, that vessel that's saying 'you can be whatever you want to be'...' well done Serena Williams 💕 #strongmother rg @theglowdotcom
