“Full or atmosphere”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

A great little local with lots of history. Don't expect fancy, but get ready for lots or atmosphere in a 'real' pub environment.

“Best pub to watch sport in Cape Town”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

We go regularly to the Firemans Arms to watch the rugby. This place is bubbly, serves excellent pub lunch for a very decent price and Lionel who is our regular waiter looks after us so well!
Go early if you want to sit down, have a guiness and read the paper. Then enjoy the match on the big screen or one of the many tv all over the place.

“Great Sporty English Pub in Cape Town”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

There are few better places to view live sports. Remember to come earlier to get a seat or even standing space as it is a favorite amongst locals. Great vibe when full. Decent parking close by too.
