Also located at the Dubai Hills Gold Club, The Duck Hook is an upscale take on the quintessential “19th Hole” pub. With reimagined takes on classic gastropub favourites, the Duck Hook is based upon traditional British country pursuits that will transport us to the Shires of England.

The Maine Oyster Bar, Hilton JBR

"The Cocktail menu at The Maine lacked luster and originality when we started. I could picture what I wanted, but didn't have the talent or the creativity to execute a cocktail menu befitting the brand. Angus came in and created a diverse and original menu with a wide range of spirits and garnishes. He streamlined our operations by implementing purchasing, stock management controls and trained the entire team - bringing our down both our beverage cost and increasing our sales of cocktails".
