Stumbled upon this place when we arrived in Umhlanga. Service was excellent and food very tasty. Thoroughly enjoyed steak and ale pie, cheese stuffed jalapenos, nachos, chicken halloumi wrap and an "awesome" filet steak roll. Go if youre hungru as portions are huge!

We had a lovely evening at Steak and Ale. The food was great. We all had steaks which were tender and succulent. The jalapeño poppers were not the best I've had so room for improvement. Service was good and vibe was good.

Supped there last week with a buddy primarily because we were looking for a venue to do a Stogie. Alright, it was cold and business was slow, so they reduced service staff- or so it seemed.

Busy, good atmosphere. Deck area outside good for summer months. In a great area of Umhlanga, lots of little pubs and great restaurants around.

Looked promising and delivered high quality of food and service Portion sizes too large - they served the biggest steaks which could feed a family of four!

I visited this eatery on 01 August 2015 and must confess the meals and the quality of the food was excellent ....and so was the service. I've disregarded this eatery for a while now. .but concede it has a pleasant ambience. .seating on the pavement deck can be obtained. ..wonderful vibe. ..pricing is not bad. A definite recommendation from me.

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
