To start, we ordered a bottle of vine. A twenty minutes later the waitress returned and informed us that they lost the corkscrew and can't open the vine. (Good thing we are staying at the attached Best Western and had a corkscrew in the room.) Next, we ordered 3 soups and 5 main courses (for 4 adults and 2 children).... More

Wall mounted TV's showing sports, drink prices and offers written on chalk boards and pictures of Cape Town on the walls. Quite noisy and busy.

Not my favourite place in Cape Town as it can get quite busy and noisy, but the food is surprisingly good for a pub! Love their bar snacks, calamari and potato wedges are yummy! Very reasonably priced food, so real value for money.
