The pizza is some of the best I have had here in Joburg and the beer is great as well. Eclectic bunch of people who go here and often there is great live music. A great place to spend an afternoon and meet people.

The Ale House is one of our favourite haunts - there's nothing more enjoyable than have a pint or several under the trees and having a chat with the owner/brewer, Dirk van Tonder. His Buchu beer and Trailer Trash Blonde are superb. There's a small...More
