Me and a few friends went to watch the rugby at this establishment. Big variety of beers on tap. The food was worth the price. Service was bad though...

A pub well worth visiting should you pass by Parys. Good, quality pub grub with a beer wide variety of beers to choose from. The waiters are friendly and the service is fast. Good for a long lazy lunch with friends!

Great craft beer available. Not sure about food. Atmosphere is jovial. Prices were fair. Looks like it could be quite vibey at night

Had a great lunch but the drink prices were ridiculous. Because we were on bikes we ordered small pints of craft beers but at R35/R40 for a half pint we felt we were being ripped off!More
