“Great Pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Had a couple of their local beers, not lager, here. Well worth a visit to sit out in the sun and watch the world go by. Wife said wine and cocktails were good too!!!!

“great spot to grab lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We were exhausted from touring around and grabbed a table outdoors. The beer was a nice change from the pale bottled beer available everywhere. Our pizza was great. I have a dairy sensitivity and can't eat cheese. They did a great special order pizza for us without cheese and they got it right the first time. It was a good experience. Great spot to people watch also.

“grab a great pint here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

huge range of ales and a good assortment of food to whet anyone's appetite. Lovely staff too. I love a dark ale and the staff took their time to explain the differences between the ales. We did not eat as we were just taking in the views and some refreshments after shopping at the V & A. Good sized outside eating and drinking area and a good inside pub if the weather is cooler.

“Good food, overpriced beer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

I've eaten here a couple of times and always found the food pretty good, but when they charged me R42, nearly double the normal price for my favourite beer yesterday, I couldn't help but feel that they're part of Cape Town's bad reputation for overcharging in tourist locations. My favourite restraurant in Constantia charges R25 for the same beer. It's a pity, because it's an otherwise charming place, but I've got zero tolerance towards being ripped-off.
