Fun place to be. Have gone on several occasions for drinks and food with friends, even once for my birthday, never disappointed.

The vibe is always energetic and loud, the live music good. Location is great, service is friendly. The food is your belly-filling pub type grub, I personally love the schnitzel.

A great place to hit up at the Waterfront!

We often go to Mitchell's for some beers or a pub meal. Nice to just sit outside and enjoy the vibe of the Waterfront in season.

If you want beer, not lager, this is the place. The beer rates alongside real British ale. Also a good place for sport on the tv. We did eat here as well, the food was good 'pub food' at competitive price, nicely presented and reasonable price.

Nice old fashioned pub with extensive selection of beers brewed on the premises and well kept. Unfortunatley my original choice was not available but my second selection proved bang up to the mark.
Nice place to take the weight of you feat and just chill and watch the world go by when in Cape Town

We visited this place when we spent time and the Q and A waterfront area.

We were very impressed by the choice of food and the choice of beers/ales that were avaliable.

Aswell as the usual Castle Lager etc they had a full array of Uk style real ales(which went down very well)
The food was also well cooked and plentiful and decent value for money.

It can get very busy at times and some of the waiters can seem a little laid back but i guess thats what its like in South Africa.

All in all we would definatly pay a return visit to this place!!
