Little bit noisy, but ok

The name just tell it: you get steak and ale. The restaurant on the ground level can be quite noisy and crowded, but the food is good value.

We walked in to this place because the billboard promised great steaks in every way possible. So we ordered two big ciabatta's with everything on and a salad plate on the side. The meat was hard, overcooked and dry. The salad had some brown edges and was anything buth fresh. Potato chips were acceptable. The beer they serve on draft... More

Been to this place in the past, enjoyed most of the meals. However this last trip to Umhlanga we found the venue had deffinetly lost something - perhaps the manager? One occasion, forgot to take down our booking, was for a large table so we ended up eating halfway down the passage. The waiter service depends on who you get... More

On the 4th of July, my family and I headed to steak an ale for dinner. We felt very welcome by the staff and the vibe was great. Food was awesome especially the rump. Great service from a gentleman named Matt. Will definitely be back.

Always enjoy it here! the waitrons are friendly and engaging, the pub food is better than you'd expect, with such a range, not simply small snacks, and the drinks on offer will satisfy everyone's tastes.

As an Umhlanga native, I'm somewhat spoilt for choice as far as terrific eateries go that are within walking distance of my house. For this reason, I'm not too surprised that it's taken me months to make the effort to check out Steak and Ale. It took a while for our drinks to arrive, but the staff can hardly be... More
