Very relaxed dining, with excellent food, and the ribs are to die for! They simply drop off the bone, and the portion is so large that you MIGHT want to share, but there again, they also taste good the following day for lunch!

An unashamedly basic Sports Bar with beer and food + TVs with Sports.. Perefect for the evening when you really want to eat "normal" food with no frills - Interesting people hanging out on their way home from work too (I think)

By far the worst T bone steak I have ever had, hardly edible, looked like 2 waiters trying there best to run the bar and wait tables, way under staffed, had a great experience here a few years ago, unfortunately will never be back

International rugby match had big game atmosphere enhanced by big screen in separate section of restaurant. Good wholesome food and range of beers.

Great atmosphere and food. Would absolutely come again ! Barmen were welcoming, wine was lovely and seats outside were perfect. Only a few hundred yards from overpriced waterfront area.

I can honestly say that you can not be disappointed with a visit to this great 60s pub We have eaten here with friends, kids, business acquaintances & family on many occasions. I have a holiday flat in Knysna just a stroll away on the water front & " Olde's Pub & Grill" is a 2/3 times a week venue.... More

"If we don't have it, you don't need it" is one of slogans on the wall what describes this pub. Ceiling covered with old vinyls gives to this place nice old days feeling.

ordered Ribs and I had the Fillet Espenada, both were really delicious and worth the 45min wait. Service left the meal down, mine came with wrong side dish and wasn't rectified for 10 minutes by which my great hanging skewer of meat was cold! Also ordered creamy garlic sauce when the meal arrived and this was 15mins by which time... More

We enjoyed a quiet family dinner here. Staff are friendly and service was quick. I enjoyed my ribs and the boys had rump steaks perfectly cooked and well matured. Pub style restaurant with tables outside on the verandah. We enjoyed a slow dinner and sampled local craft beer. An enjoyable evening and will return for more good food.
