Sit on the bar chairs. Order whatever tap beer you fancy. Let the evening settle in. And then chat with the regulars. Fun. Fun. Fun. We had a lot of Guinness and Windhoek and just chatted the evening away.

This place is just made for chilling and enjoying oneself with friends or family. The food is surprisingly good (given the outside appearance). We had the peri chicken which was superb. Service was efficient and vibe very good.

Great little pub that's truly stood the test of time. Don't be fooled the the 'dodgy' building and surroundings. The menu offers a wide variety. I can recommend the beef fillet.....The best I've had a long time.

Sorry for the tardy response but hopefully not too late - it's a bit of a dodge area especially if you park in the main street. There were car guards for secure-ish parking in Radium's side street.
