Nice place to eat a very good meat and beer. Staff is kind and pretty fast in serving you. Inside you can choose a smoker and a non-smoker area. Large internal parking area, if there's not place inside, staff helps you in find a place outside just across the street.

Good service.Great food! They are always really consistent. The king prawns are always amazing, and so are their house salads.

I visited this place on a Monday at around 7pm so it was quiet. There were 5 of us on a business trip. Foos came to order without any hassle and everybody agreed that their meals were very good indeed. We all had something different and so we can say a good cross section. I had snails to start (...

It was the only restaurant open just after 8 on a Monday night, but I still had an hour's drive to get home, and really didn't feel like making supper for myself that late, so I popped in for a bite. The steaks are quite pricy, and I really didn't feel like paying R150 for a piece of rump which... More

Certainly follows the old Squires tradition of great steaks. Have been there on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed. Service is generally very good and both management and staff very accommodating for any special requests. Good value and you can always rely on consistent quality..

Good service, pleasant atmosphere and friendly waiters. We had the 900g rib special for R70.00 and it was the best ribs we ever had! I'm sure all the meat is of good quality and well prepared, but note that you are going to pay +/- R120 - R150 for steak. If you are a carnivore, this place is recommended!

I live in the area and up to now visited the restaurant on a fairly regular basis. I am sure that there are better places that will give more value for money. On busy nights the staff is unfriendly and you have to ask several times for things before you get it. The food is edible but that is it.... More

We cannot say anything negative about this restaurant. Great rump steak, hand cut chips, awesome cheese and mushroom sauce, great cocktail menu. We asked if it will be possible for the men in our group to have pap as a side, and the manager said that it would be no problem at all. Helpful staff, awesome location, warm and cosy... More

Our first night, so tired after the flight, and we wanted some good basic food in a nice place, and this was perfect. Friendly and prompt service, nice environment, and very good steaks.
