This is a very unpretentious place with hearty pub grub. The food is all local, and freshly prepared. Pies, burgers, etc. but also catered for vegetarians and kids. Very friendly hand on management and a nice atmosphere.

What a great place for lunch. Busy, good food and a great vibe. Seating inside and outside. Ordering and collecting drinks is done yourself. Food is served by waitresses. You need to book over the Dec holidays. Very accommodating if you have kids or animals....More

Great food and drinks at Emeralds with an absolute stunning view and very kind staff! An absolute „Must See“ in EL. Ask for the Eisbein and the IPA beer :-)

A lovely "out of town" setting about 20km from East London up the east coast. Good vibes and great locally brewed beer! Friendly staff. What more could you ask for? At times they have live bands playing there like the Parletones etc.
