A very cosy place with a brewery of it own. They even have a tasting menu for the brewery if you got tired of all the wine you had from the winery’s around. We had the Big Boy Burger which was ok and the Haute...dog which was very good. The place was criardes but the service was very good still!More

We stopped off here because we wanted somewhere near the park after the kids had played. The beer and cider is very tasty, which can’t be faulted. The food was ok, your average pub grub, but slightly elevated. We ordered the steak medium rare, but...it was close to well done. Apart from that, a lovely place to stop off at.More

Think my expectations were a bit high and if we had just come for a drink I think my review might have been better. As you can't book a table from certain times in the day, a queue starts to form which I found uncomfortable...and irritating to be honest. Also bizarrely, on the night we were here, a table HAD been reserved and yet there were many people inside waiting for tables outside. Our table was parallel to the inside of the restaurant and people waiting for tables were sitting at right angles to us, and very close which made for very self-conscious eating and conversation. Our simple food order of samosas, followed by fish and chips and Korean chicken took forever to come (nearly an hour) and although staff were very apologetic, it was just too long to wait. Having said that, the food was delicious and staff were so good and friendly. Next time I think we'd sit inside.More

Located on the main road, this is indeed a microbrewery (not just the name). Descriptons of their beers are detailed and one can also have a tasting of all their beers. Food in pub grub in a very good sense of the meaning, and plenty....Service is very friendly and helpful.More

Booked a table for an evening meal following a day on the wine tram and it was just right as we’d had enough of “wine” & my husband was desperate for a beer! Lovely food, good service and excellent value, with a good vibe.

After visiting here the last 4 times we’ve been in Franschhoek, it was a no brainer to visit again on our recent 8 night stay. The place just has a great atmosphere, whether you’re sat at the bar having a beer or outside on the...lovely terrace. The staff can’t do enough for you and special mention must be made of Solomon who was brilliant and looked after us every time we visited (which was virtually every night!) The food is really good, whether you’re just after nacho’s or samosa’s as a snack, chicken curry or a fillet steak - all delicious and really good value. Beers are great with Tuk Tuk Weiss beer and Soul Barrel Tropical Parade IPA being particular favourites. This is a very popular place and at times you will have to wait to be seated.More

We are over from the U.K. for 4 days in beautiful Franshhoek before heading out to other parts of Cape Town. Walked past the venue which had a really lovely courtyard and a good atmosphere. Great offer of little row of beer tasting which were...all delicious. Loved that the menu was not pretentious with a great choice of food. Had the fillet steak with garden salad,hubby had kingklip gougons with hand cut chips and mushy peas.Just delicious and the flavours in the salad,combination of leaves seeds and herbs was truly mouthwatering.Visited a second time in 2 days -meal equally delicious - wine by the glass both sparkling Rose and red also very good. Served by Byron who was charming and efficient supported by members of his team. Thank you guys - we would recommend.More
