Absolutely the place to be in Clarens! They have tappas style food and full menu, craft beer, craft gin. Cheese platter for 2 is very good! went back for another. Very busy, always almost full. Sit outside or inside, also at the bar counter.

It’s a warm and welcoming restaurant. The beer and cider tasting is free and really cool as you get to try some new drinks and then choose the ones you like. The food is very delicious. We really enjoyed ourselves!

My husband thoroughly enjoyed the local brewed beers. This place is also kid friendly and have tasty food for adults and kids. A very popular place and a nice stopover for biker groups or anyone that enjoy beers
