I visited Beerhouse a few weeks ago for pre-drinks with friends before we went clubbing, they had a great variety of beers, I simply could not decide. My friend suggested something a type of cider/beer and I really enjoyed it.

Average service from waitress, and starters tasty, but terrible host/manager and security/doorman. Rude and unprofessional.

This is one of my favorite bars in South Africa. It offers an excellent selection of craft beers and especially my IPA. They organize certain events sometimes with free beer tasting and having local brewers to join. The burgers are awesome and definitely, a must...More

We sat upstairs watching the crowds on Long Street and enjoyed a nice lunch and good beer. Staff was friendly and helpful in menu and beer choices.
