Meeting some friend for a cold beer and a bite to eat turned out to be a fun evening out. Nice place, cold beer, good service.

I live in Richmond but every trip to Durban includes a lunch or dinner at Steak and Ale. Not only do they offer the best steak experience, I can always rely on service that is personal, friendly and professional. The manager Josh always stops at our table to say hi and make sure everything is fine. At our last visit... More

The restaurant is conveniently situated and great pub for watching sport and having a pub meal. The service was good but was a bit disappointed with the quality of the food. My steak wasn't burnt but tasted like it had been cooked over something burnt so had a burnt after taste. The prices for lunch were very reasonable.

Terrible service, the waiter did not keep us informed what was happening when we waited an hour and 45 minutes for our food. When following up with the manager we were asked to wait a little longer. Another waiter then informed us it had only just gone into the oven. The manager offered no solution except one free round of... More

Nice chilled atmosphere. Very accommodating, helpful and friendly service. Good food. Clean bathrooms. The vibe on the street and in general was so good! My husband and I had a nice boozy lunch while watching the cricket. The only thing I would change is a baby changing room.

A busy, vibey place to eat. A typical steakhouse but with the most delicious steaks that are tender and cooked to perfection. The staff are on the ball and the service is quick and efficient. If it's steak or burgers you are after, this is the place to go.

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
