Description: Dear Guest Brothers Greg and Mike Huckle opened Pirates Steakhouse & Pub on the second of October 1990. Their motto was 'A HAPPY CUSTOMER ALWAYS COMES BACK'. Greg says that although they struggled in the beginning, they have continued to stand by their motto and ensure that their customers are happy - and it is this that has made the business the success it is today. Shortly after opening, Greg married Julie, an experienced restaurateur, who joined him in the running of the business. Together, with a dedicated group of staff members, they have built a formidable team that is committed to giving their customers the high standard of service that they deserve. In August 1992, Greg and Julie launched a unique Pirates Dining Club for the benefit of their regular patrons. From the very beginning, Pirates Dining Club proved to be a tremendous success and we would like ot take this opportunity to invite you to become a member. Pirates Dining Club was formed for a number of reasons: • To create camaraderie amongst our friends and regular patron. • To offer decent folk the opportunity to enjoy good food, drink, conversation and entertainment, in a comfortable and relaxed environment at affordable prices. • To enable us to offer something back to those patrons who give us their continued support and who appreciate the high standards we strive to maintain. Club Members enjoy the following benefits: • A variety of monthly dining specials available to both you and your guests. • Privateers Club Prices for local beers, ciders, wine by the glass and spirits are discounted by approximately 20% from the normal selling price. Club prices are available in both the pub and the restaurant . • A Pirates meal voucher to the value of R100, valid on the day of your birthday. This is our 'Thank You' to you for all your support throughout the year. • As a Club Member you will receive a Pirates Club Card and the quarterly Club Newsletter, The Privateer, giving you details of the monthly dining specials, our live music round-up and any other news updates. To become a Member of this unique Pirates Dining Club, all you need to do is complete an application form, hand it in with your initial membership fee of R50.00 to your waitress, hostess or bartender. Alternatively you can fill in the email form to the right and pay the fee the next time you are in store. Or you can download the form here, print it and complete it at home and bring it with you next time you visit a branch. Your membership can be renewed annually for R25.00. If you are already a member, for each new member you recommend you get 3 months free membership.

Went here for Sunday lunch and although a bit dodgy from the outlook, the steak was juicy and my knife went through it like a knife through butter :-)

Prices are good. Didn't like the sauce I ordered with my steak because it tasted like packet sauce but nothing was going to spoil my steak so I just left the sauce in the little bowl it came in.

Service is good if somewhat slow - waited quite a while for our mains and then as long for our coffee but it was worth it. steak - Excellent, coffee - excellent, bill - excellent!
