This is a very friendly restaurant and the staff are eager to please! More importantly the food is well prepared by Braam himself. They serve great locally grafted beer which is worthwhile a taste.

Beautiful setting next to the Kowie River and in a very old building. Staff are relatively friendly. For the price you pay it was pretty average food. Red onion marmalade was sickly sweet, you couldn't enjoy the meal after one spoonful. The deepfried burger -...More

I stopped in for my first visit - well recommended by friends and rightly so.I had grilled calamari and the brewery's Coin Ale. Both were very enjoyable. Time to head back for a more substantial meal as the dishes I saw being served looked scrumptious!

Having sampled most of PA’s restaurants during my stay, I would rate WSB as the best on offer here. Good selection of quality meals, generous portions, and helpful and pleasant service. Would definitely recommend for either lunch or dinner.

The "Wharf Street Brew Pub" is situated on the historic Wharf Street in Port Alfred. It is housed in the oldest commercial building in Port Alfred completed in 1853. The decor is simple with pictures of old Port Alfred being the focal pointWe have micro Brewery attached to us and sell three of our own beers. Our food is a selection of Pub Style food like fish and chips, schnitzels and burgers ranging to freshly caught line fish, in house matured steaks and a host of other things in between. We pride our selves on good food and service so please pop in if only to sample our local brew, you might well end up staying for a bite to eat as many do after seeing our menu.
