Serving a range of good simple meals, hearty South African classics, the best Burgers, & awesome home smoked meat dishes, smoked the traditional way on site for up to 14 hours in our authentic Southern styled BBQ Smoker, the menu is definitely not something to be missed. Try our smoked pork ribs, smoked pulled pork burger, smoked peri-peri half chicken or smoked thick-cut beef brisket, just to mention a few... All food is freshly prepared on site, with no preservatives, MSG or artificial flavourants. Burgers are 100% lean beef and buns are baked daily on site. Hogshead, the Original Craft Beer Pub in Gauteng, serves not only the 4 SAB favorites on tap, but also have no less than 12 local craft beers on tap at any time, as well as a few blended Craft Beer options. We source our craft beers from quality local breweries across the country, and while we stock the full Brewhogs range, we do alternate our offering from time to time.
