I took my mom to Ferrymans for lunch on 16 January. Her mussels arrived ice cold and was then sent back. They arrived back, only slightly warm. My prego roll was sad and the roll was very stale. I am still waiting for my coke...I ordered .....and a R307 bill😪😔 No management visibleMore

Good place to have breakfast, and enjoy a beer with friends at night, its location is perfect, it is next to the waterfront shopping center, if you take a vehicle in great because on the other side you have public parking, what I fell in...love with this place was its people I want to congratulate my friend Kumbie Kamunga, what a good service you gave me, I came to this place to buy water and I received it for free, so I decided to return to make a purchase later. My friend, I hope to return to this beautiful country one day and visit this place again but you with a better job position, you are the magic of this place.More

First option for a night out or a lovely lunch when in the V&A Waterfront. We usually go to enjoy the live music and they have great specials throughout the year. Their current promotions are a R99 Menu and a Mini breakfast at R39. Will...definitely recommend 👌 😁More

Food was fine but the passing trade was less than welcome. V&A security need to clean the place up, it is so obvious.

V&A waterfront pub. Mussels were excellent but service was fairly slow all be staff very nice. It appeared the patio was understaffed having the rain earlier in the morning and then clearing up. Over all would still go there again and would recommend.

A good straightforward pub. Good food, good music and good beer. Couldnt ask for more really. We went 2 nights running during our 4 nights in Cape Town ! We were on our way to a restaurant second time out, but as we walked past...on a Saturday night saw the band on and said looks like more fun, and it was. Great night out.More

We had intended to go here but as they were dressed up to show off the day we thought it was fun. They actually had Guinness and as it was St Patricks Day and my wife is 1/2 Irish it had to be done. Anyway...it was very pleasant and the inside is very like an English pub. Glad we didn't miss it.More

Both this pub and one next door have TV’s , usually with Sport on but think satellite only , so not sure about Rugby. Lots of Brits hang out there though.
