Fantastic pub, excellent band and friendly locals. Bit strange to see people smoking in a bar again. Nice to be in a real pub

We have been there and had a beer. Not a great experience. But not bad. Noisy and full of boisterous navy people we don't often go there. However, they have their market segment and we wish them good luck.

What a treat - this felt the way pubs used to feel in England before the smoking ban! Lots of naval memorabilia - Simon's Town is a naval Base and it's clear that the crew of visiting ships make rhemselves at home here, which makes it interesting for landlubbers.

Two and Six has always been my "watering hole" of choice when visiting Simon's Town. Always friendly staff, good atmosphere and reasonable prices!

Great place to have a beer! The food was average. It was a nice place to hang out, watch the boats go by, and talk to locals!

The Two and Sixpence Tavern This lively English style tavern situated on the main road in Simon's Town is part of the Simon's Town heritage - Been on the block since 1902 and was built for Cecil John Rhodes I’ve been told.
