Had a superb pub lunch. Ale pie, chicken burgers, pizzas etc plus a few beers. Came to almost R200 per head. The drinks are extremely expensive. Great setting but the bill was significantly more than one would expect from a pub

Great outdoor area for kids, good seating in full view of the jungle gym. Simple bar style food but tasty and well priced. Nice selection of draft beers and good service. I would prefer it as a summer place, the inside is a pub and probably too confined for kids.

Very young vibe - favourite hang out of locals and students - always very lively and friendly, near the Newlands Rugby & cricket fields so a lot of sporting people on match days
