Two of the meals at our table where the Steak and Kidney pie and Beef and Guinness pie. Both had been reheated, which made the kidney particularly bad, together with the undercooked bacon fat and anything but real "meaty source" made for an inedible.

There was not a manager in sight, when complaining for the second time the waitress eventually pitched up with the chef, but he had not made the pie, this chef was not there ???

They still added it to our bill. It was such a bad experience it prompted this, my first review on Trip Advisor.

The best bangers and mash outside of Ireland. Gets a bit noisy on a Friday night but still a good evening out with excellent food. Staff are very friendly. Try the lamb shanks too. Just falls off the bone with tenderness

We were staying in a wonderful B&B in the area and found this wonderful Irish Pub quite by chance and all I can say is it was a wonderful find! We were in the area for a week and loved this quaint little spot so much that we returned for lunch and dinner several times. Everything we tried was very very good and excellently prepared. The Lamb Curry and the Eisbein were my favorites but between the entire group of us, we sampled much of the pub foods - all was wonderful. I wish we had this restaurant close to us in Texas but every time we find ourselves in the Johannesburg area we will return to this fantastic eatery for an ice cold beer and a crisp and juicy Eisbein!
