Called in here the first night of our stay. The staff were friendly and helpful so after our first beer decided to stay for a bite to eat . It's a fairly basic bar but the food and drink are good and cheap and the place wasn't rowdy . So give it a try.

Basic decor and linoleum floors makes this place look like it escaped from the 70's. In fact it reminds me of a place I visited in the 80's. This is basically a local watering hole with a restaurant attached. If you are a smoker you will love the huge smoking section. Food was average, drinks were expensive, atmosphere was flat... More

Being on vacation with a 2 year old ordering takeaways at Tipples was quite a challenge. We had to place our order at the bar as there was not another/seperate counter. With Tipples being a pub as well I would recommend that they consider having a seperate place for people to order takeaways especially if you offer takeaways. We were... More

Not from Hermanus, we watched a rugby game there recently. Very cosy pub, nice gas heaters outside, drinks were priced decently, and the food was good. The burgers were awesome though - massive and very nice. Baskets were a bit over-rated, while the pizza's were also good. Can recommend

We went to Tipples to meet family for a birthday lunch, our family are regulars which I think changed the way we were treated, even though my boyfriend and I are not. When we arrived the couple we were meeting didn't have menus which I thought would arrive after we did.. they did not. I eventually (30mins in) had to... More

On recommendation of a couple of friends I visited Tipples for lunch, they have a restaurant section in the back and it is very nice. The service was really good and and fast. The food was exceptional good for a pub. I had the fire burger and it was just amazing.
