About
Dear Guest Brothers Greg and Mike Huckle opened Pirates Steakhouse & Pub on the second of October 1990. Their motto was 'A HAPPY CUSTOMER ALWAYS COMES BACK'. Greg says that although they struggled in the beginning, they have continued to stand by their motto and ensure that their customers are happy - and it is this that has made the business the success it is today. Shortly after opening, Greg married Julie, an experienced restaurateur, who joined him in the running of the business. Together, with a dedicated group of staff members, they have built a formidable team that is committed to giving their customers the high standard of service that they deserve. In August 1992, Greg and Julie launched a unique Pirates Dining Club for the benefit of their regular patrons. From the very beginning, Pirates Dining Club proved to be a tremendous success and we would like ot take this opportunity to invite you to become a member. Pirates Dining Club was formed for a number of reasons: • To create camaraderie amongst our friends and regular patron. • To offer decent folk the opportunity to enjoy good food, drink, conversation and entertainment, in a comfortable and relaxed environment at affordable prices. • To enable us to offer something back to those patrons who give us their continued support and who appreciate the high standards we strive to maintain. Club Members enjoy the following benefits: • A variety of monthly dining specials available to both you and your guests. • Privateers Club Prices for local beers, ciders, wine by the glass and spirits are discounted by approximately 20% from the normal selling price. Club prices are available in both the pub and the restaurant . • A Pirates meal voucher to the value of R100, valid on the day of your birthday. This is our 'Thank You' to you for all your support throughout the year. • As a Club Member you will receive a Pirates Club Card and the quarterly Club Newsletter, The Privateer, giving you details of the monthly dining specials, our live music round-up and any other news updates. To become a Member of this unique Pirates Dining Club, all you need to do is complete an application form, hand it in with your initial membership fee of R50.00 to your waitress, hostess or bartender. Alternatively you can fill in the email form to the right and pay the fee the next time you are in store. Or you can download the form here, print it and complete it at home and bring it with you next time you visit a branch. Your membership can be renewed annually for R25.00. If you are already a member, for each new member you recommend you get 3 months free membership.

As always Pirates delivers with steaks that are very hard to beat. The decor is typical “olde worlde” steak house and you feel a bit as if you have crossed the time warp. Definitely recommend a visit to Pirates.

The steak, the sauce, the veggies, the chips, the ribs, the pizzas, there is nothing on the menu I have not been impressed with. Enjoy the guitarist while you dine. Found on the Entertainer. The place has 4 parts to it. There is a restaurant, a pub, a dance floor and a gambling spot upstairs where you can watch football with a big projector. I enjoy eating and dancing at Pirates.

I would to tell the 2 ladies that was on duty on the 2nd of July 2024. Great service girls and the food was fantastic it was my birthday on the 2nd of July 2024. Am very forgetful with names sorry girls. But am sure the manager will know who was on duty one on floor and the hostess that also helped out and check on us all the time. Awesome service

My visit there was nothing short of a nightmare. The bouncer's behavior was absolutely despicable. Not only did he steal my brother's wallet containing R2000 rand, but he also threatened our lives when we confronted him about it. The audacity to commit theft and then intimidate us is beyond belief. We were enjoying our time, ordering food and drinks upstairs when this appalling incident occurred. Instead of feeling safe and welcomed, we were met with hostility and threats. It's unacceptable for any establishment to employ such dishonest and dangerous individuals. To add insult to injury, when we tried to address the situation with management, they showed complete indifference and refused to take any responsibility. It's clear that they prioritize protecting their staff over the safety and satisfaction of their customers. I have documented evidence of this disgraceful encounter and will not hesitate to share it on social media to warn others about the dangers of patronizing Pirates the Bar. Save yourself the trouble and avoid this place at all costs. Your safety and peace of mind are not worth risking for a few drinks or a meal.

Felt unwelcome, the waitress seemed disinterested and cold, almost like I was an obligatory nuisance. (They usually quite good but second time this waitress serves me and I felt uncomfortable) I don't go there often.

I very much enjoy the amazing steaks at pirates and go often. Although the live entertainment is not to my taste and a bit loud . So in and out before it starts ,makes for a lovely dining experience.

We were a party of 4 and had ribs and steak. The ribs were very good and the steak was okay. Unfortunately, my steak and sauce was cold when it arrived. The service was slow and we had to struggle to get attention. Basic things like finger bowls were not given, we had to ask. It was not busy at all when we were there.

Thursday night 7.00 PM quiet ? No packed to the ceiling both pub and restaurant. BUT having booked we were quickly shown to our seat & promptly -without rushing- our order was taken. My wife enjoyed an excellent Chicken Schnitzel, moist & crisply crumbed with a good mushroom sauce. I had the 250GM Pepper Melt Rump extremely tender & fine flavour, plenty of chips with a dash of onion, lettuce and tomato. Kali our waitress was v professional quick and friendly. Cost plus recommended bottle of wine R360 good value.

We came for dinner a bit early before the live music. The location is not great (next to slot machines), parking on main road, but parking was easy. Once inside, the 'pub' ambience works well and there was a diverse range of patrons. The waitron was very efficient.The meal came reasonably quickly and the mushroom and cheese burger was very tasty and the portion quite big.

We wanted really good steak which we know Pirate's never disappoints! Unfortunately it didn't feel kid friendly. We have a 3 year old and we felt as if we needed to keep him quiet all the time. I had called in advance to enquire and they said they were.
