The beer and food were adequate, although nothing special, and overpriced compared to other places. However, we checked that our game (a major rugby international) would be shown when arriving. Kick off was 2 hours later, and the game was not on. After 20 mins or so of checking we were told it wouldn't be. That was the only reason... More

The food here was pretty good as was the service, when you could find somebody. It has a wide range of beers and ciders together with a reasonable wine list. The main menu was varied and the portions were rather generous. This is a pub, not a fancy restaurant so don't expect cordon bleu standards but all in all it... More

It's great bar to meet the locals and have a few pre-dinner drinks. Tyrone the bar manager has great line of chat and can tell you anything you might want to know about Knysna and the locality.

Sunday evening watching the Final of the Euros. On our walk home to our aprtmnt down the road, four Caucasian men from the pub (patrons), started verbally assaulting girls within the group. Absolute scum - avoid!

The worst dinner! Very expensive for the amount of food you get! I ordered 500g ribs R120, was definitely not 500g, I got 6 little ribs! Supposed to be best in town....was nothing great! Asked for a side salad instead of chips...it was a "SAD" salad, didn't touch it! If you want to watch rugby and have a few drinks...great... More

We had ribs as well as Eisbein which was very good. Ordered some grilled chicken wings which were pretty average.The ribs were quite pricey at almost R200.00 for a kg but definitely well worth the money. It was fall off the bone good.

We always seem to have the fish and chips as it is really tasty. Pleasant people and a fantastic looking Bar. A real pleasure to visit and have a meal. Will definitely be going there again. It's worth it.
