Giles, a veritable institution in the suburbs, is a fantastic combination of a very good restaurant and a very good pub. With a wide range of tasty options on the menu and lots of cold beer on tap it's attracted a devoted band of regulars. However, it may soon be sold and there's a chance it may soon close. Very sad. But thanks for all the memories!

Local institution for the area and judging by the Friday evening/night crowd still very popular! Very specific (read mature!) age group which does make a difference and a great place to catch up with friends. Pub deck is always packed but dining area is both quieter and open air is ideal for some tasty bangers a mash. Good service and proper pub menu!

We frequent often. It's useful as a comfort stop when travelling home from the south of Johannesburg. Usual beers but a good range of wines. House wine a good choice by the bottle.

Food good. Venue very popular with locals
