We came here early evening for dinner. It was a windy night so they moved out table to the inside area near the display fridge. The server was a young friendly young man but did not really advise the portion sizes. So the net result my husband only ate half his meal of ribs. It was really a meal for... More

True to its name, the restaurant offers excellent meat cooked to perfection. The waitresses were students helping out during the festive season. All efficient and smiling. Ours succeeded in getting me the vegetable I wanted even though not on the menu. The restaurant, with inside and outside sitting, was full. Families, friends, young and older alike had a great time.... More

Having visited Umhlaga Rocks a number of times I again returned to the “Steak and Ale” restaurant on my recent business visit. We were in the Protea hotel for 3 nights and dined at Steak and Ale all 3 nights. I always knew their steaks were more than exceptional and once again they were. Always cooked to absolute perfection and... More

Had a few drinks here during the day and also in the evening. The prices are very good and the food was tremendous, especially the Steak and Ale Pie. This place amongst other gets very busy on a Friday Night and has a great vibe to it. Worth a visit.

If your looking for value and a pint of Hansa for £1.10 this is for you. Friendly and efficient staff in abundance. Great competition for the "George" across the road.
