This was opposite our hotel so called in on both nights. Everywhere else seems to close around 9.30 but Oldes is open slightly later and you can get a a nice drink at a reasonable price

The service qas good only about 12 people outside and no one inside. The Seafood platter special was just that. Over cooked crummed prawns... the ones you buy ready to fry. The Eisbein was better but not the best. Just and average pub with average crub

Very relaxed dining, with excellent food, and the ribs are to die for! They simply drop off the bone, and the portion is so large that you MIGHT want to share, but there again, they also taste good the following day for lunch!

An unashamedly basic Sports Bar with beer and food + TVs with Sports.. Perefect for the evening when you really want to eat "normal" food with no frills - Interesting people hanging out on their way home from work too (I think)

By far the worst T bone steak I have ever had, hardly edible, looked like 2 waiters trying there best to run the bar and wait tables, way under staffed, had a great experience here a few years ago, unfortunately will never be back

International rugby match had big game atmosphere enhanced by big screen in separate section of restaurant. Good wholesome food and range of beers.

Great atmosphere and food. Would absolutely come again ! Barmen were welcoming, wine was lovely and seats outside were perfect. Only a few hundred yards from overpriced waterfront area.

I can honestly say that you can not be disappointed with a visit to this great 60s pub We have eaten here with friends, kids, business acquaintances & family on many occasions. I have a holiday flat in Knysna just a stroll away on the water front & " Olde's Pub & Grill" is a 2/3 times a week venue.... More
