Worst overpriced food I've ever had. Ordered Chicken Wings & the Biltong Fries, and both were below average especially for the price we had to pay. Atmosphere was average. Staff wasn't attentive and kept lying to us when we asked for the manager, who didn't bother to show. Would only recommend the place for an afternoon Beer tasting fest, nothing... More

This is a nice place to drink some beers. But in my opinion it has not a lot of Charme. It misses the flavour and personal recommendations those place could offer if the waiters would live thier job, as in other beer bars. It is too big already and people are probably not interested enough. But still...it has 99 bottled... More

A pleasant musky atmosphere, friendly staff and delicious beer (I mean come on, when is craft beer a disappointment?) but an absolute abysmal attempt at satisfaction from the kitchen! My friend and I ordered flammkuchen and both were disappointing... I would rather eat the sole of my shoe! The rest of the table was less than complacent with their meals...... More

As the name says - It's a beer House, so.... lotsbestemming of Good beer. The food? I had one of the best Burgers I've ever had.... More

This is an awesome place. The Yellow Facade do have an appealingly way of welcoming you. We sat outside on the balcony with a wonderful view of Longstreet. The beer, plenty to choice of, is paired with food, or on its own or pick your own. Food is well balanced portions, fresh and so good!!! Aisha, our waitress, well deserved... More

We came back again to beerhouse, since they are from the minority restaurants where you get good value for your money with big servings to share (we had 2 starters). The beers on tap is delicious and still fresh.

We arrived rather late in the evening, very busy, so for those not wanting a crowd, rather stick to daytime. very festive and we had a jolly time!
