A full plate of hot food & a tall cold beer or glass of wine for 59R. The longer we stayed, the more friendly the locals became. One local bought us local drinks to try for the first time. Nice atmosphere & good people watching by the sidewalk on their patio.

Irrespective of the weather, a visit to The George will brighten you up. The cheerful atmosphere, great food value and "Oh Boy" all the beers you can choose from will keep you going back for more every time. Sparkling service - but not the most comfortable bar stool seating, balance each other.

A relaxed place to just chill, enjoy a few drinks and yummy food. The burgers are excellent! Very vibey, nice background music (when you can hear it) but not just for youngsters; seniors also very welcome :) Staff friendly and helpful.

We have only ever had drinks here but this is a great local bar. Drinks are well priced and there is a decent selection of craft beer.

Be careful of the chesanyama its incredibly tough ... perhaps it should... More
