My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of having a lazy lunch at Steak and Ale yesterday, 27 November 2014. We were warmly welcomed by the manager, Brett and we chose a table on the veranda. The restaurant/pub boasts a lively ambience and offers the perfect setting for a lazy lunch. My husband had the steak (200g sirloin), egg... More

We kind of stumbled onto Steak & Ale while shopping in the area and liked the outdoor patio seating as it was a warm day, and they seemed to serve the type of food we were looking for. We were quickly seated, but had to change tables to avoid a group of young ladies who arrived after us and were... More

My husband always has and enjoys the t-bone. It's good well cooked. The bar service is fast, lots beers on tap. Big screens show sport. It has a nice vibe and great friendly waitresses The manager is a wally though, thinks he is too good to help customers which leaves me feeling sorry for the staff. Good prices and value

Tasty steaks, great wine list and cosy yet upmarket ambience. Service is impeccable.. The Beef fillet on the bone was a poem written in food! Well done.

This is an excellent restaurant/pub. I visited for a quick bite and drink on a Thursday lunch time and it was fairly busy, with a bustling atmosphere. Ordered the Bookmakers steak roll which was very good value for less than R70, tasty and big (comes with chips). Beer on tap good too. My only complaint is that there doesn't appear... More

We were really disappointed with this restaurants food! It was ordinary to say the least! It was reasonably well patronised at lunch time which is why we walked in! My guess is that the patrons enjoy the 'ale' rather than the food. With so many other restaurants on offer we would not go back!

We ended up at this restaurant by accident as it was the only one still serving food. I think they were a bit nervous when they saw us marching up the road and desperate for food. Managed to persuade them to feed us. Service was good and friendly by our young student waitress. We were a group of 12, so... More
