Special Occasion Dining, Groups, Bar Scene, Business meetings
Port Elizabeth's first craft small-batch craft brewery that opened in 2011. We serve all-natural, unfiltered, unpasteurized craft beer. Our venue overlooks the lush Baakens Valley with a well-rounded artisan menu of comfort food. Some favourites include artisan burgers, hand-rolled pizzas and signature dishes such as our Pork Belly with Bowman Apple Cider Chutney. Our brewery and restaurant are great large bookings and celebrations, or just cosy dinners and business lunches. We also have a premium venue hire, The Tap Room, which caters for functions.

My wife and I ducked in here to grab a late lunch. Lively, engaged crowd. Servers were friendly and helpful! We shared a chicken and mushroom salad and a flatbread. Both were quite good and the portions were large. Wanted an IPA, but they had...none. Went for a lager instead - it was bright and refreshing. I would definitely return!More

A few friends decided to have a afternoon snack. Ordered a variety of dishes and shared. Perfect place to chill and welcome the weekend. Good home brewed beers and I loved the cocktails. Service excellent.

If you're looking for something other than beach side cafes and restaurants that cater to only tourists, this is the spot to be. Frequented by young and hip Afrikaners, this slightly out of the way resto/bar nestled in between two hills, is a great spot...for some excellent cuisine and cheap drinks. There's lots of Port Elizabeth's urban types mixing and mingling, and the incredibly long outdoor patio with wood burning fireplaces is a welcome treat as the night cools. If getting off the tourist path is on the agenda when it comes to casual wine and dine, then this is your place!More

I don't know how to explain the experience we had here but I'll try. We found this event just before we left for PE and booked it immediately. This is a farm to table feast I will never forget. We entered the bar and were...pleasently greeted with a glass of champagne and a welcome from the owner. This is a four course meal with wine, beer and gin on tap. I won't go into too much detail about each dish but will post the menu as a photo. Just know that every dish was packed with flavour. First course was the best soup I've ever tasted followed by cold meats, fish and a variety of stunning salads and veg for course two. Course 3 was so meat heavy the jeans were unbuckled! 3 delicious protein elements including a beef and cherry pie which blew my mind. These were accompanied by impeccably balanced side dishes. The desserts to finish were so good my words won't do it justice so I'll just allow the pictures to talk instead. To add to all of this all guests were offered to help themselves to all the raw veg displayed as well as a variety of breads to take home with them. Bridge Street Brewery is great with a fantastic atmosphere and outstanding service from all the staff. This was quite simply the best dining experience I've ever had, nothing else comes close, anywhere. Thank you.More

Cool place, good ambiance, cool and friendly staff. The staff got me hammered before my flight back to JHB which was a delight. The margeritta pizza was the best.. super cheesey and affordable.. also good beer tasting plate and affordable.

Had a great draft craft beer and a good pizza. Calm pub like atmosphere and friendly service. The location is an old Industrial building in a beautifull Valley and there is a nice outside area.
