“Not just a normal pub! Take on a challenge and get your name on the wall!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Cool place. One of the oldest kuier plekkies in Stellenbosch. I'd advise a beer and a go at the 1kg steak challenge! I did it and got a certificate and name against the wall! if a 1kg steak is maybe a bit too daunting there is a beer challenge which I myself too still want to try. Other than that the place is always bussling and a great place to just enjoy a draught with a few friends!

All you would expect from an Irish pub - great fun, noisy, for the young and young at heart! Thanks to Moira for looking after us and making this our "local" in Stellenbosch!

“Lekker Irish Pub in the Heart of Stellenbosch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

Brazen Head has a bar for pub crawling, a court yard for relaxed drinking and a restaurant for special dinners. Works in between the students and Stellenbosch vibe - still is Irish!
