Brilliant range of food for great prices- especially the pub lunch menu! They often have specials and have LOADS of seating space. Indoors is quite quaint, a typical pub-like look, and the outdoors is mostly picnic bench seating. Love this place.

More than just pub fare on offer. Not the most courteous when menu adjustments are requested, such as no cheese on salad. Not much on offer for vegetarian or vegan diets. Very noisy in the pub and restaurant, so be prepared for a jolly crowd...More

Lovely atmosphere with good food. The service was welcoming and efficient and the prices not exorbitant, just normal priced dishes. Excellent menu with a variety of deal choices.

Barristers pub, situated on the corner of Main Street in a vibrant sector of Newlands, is a fantastic pub-style restaurant at which one can enjoy a good beer and affordable lunch special. R65 will give you access to a wide variety of different pub-lunch specials,...More

A bustling restaurant with laughing customers and a buzzing atmosphere are the highlight of barristers , a local hang out for newlands residents. Bribed with a lunch special for 65 rand, most barrister goers are happy enough with the mediocre quality. I ordered a burger...More

My favourite thing is Barrister's pub-lunch special – and on that menu, the chicken schnitzel is highly recommended. All the items on the special pub-lunch menu are R65 (if you order before 18:00). Some of the portions of their lunch specials are bigger than others,...More

I was really impressed with the R65 pub lunch special. The 10 delicious deals were presented quite quickly. Everyone was happy with their food. My chicken schnitzel was perfect. All served with a smile in a cosy atmosphere. We can't wait to go back.

Barristers is an institution in the Southern suburbs of Cape Town. Having been founded in 1980, Barristers is in the heart of Newlands Village and is an old favorite of locals and international visitors alike. From the deck which looks out over the village circle, through the lively pub and into the welcoming Grill and Tudor Rooms, we offer good old fashioned values at reasonable prices. Barristers has a comprehensive menu, extensive range of draught beers and a huge wine list. Good Food, Great Wine, Warm Friends is a motto we believe in emphatically.
