Bloody marvellous, great atmosphere and super beer. Happy hour is 5-6,this is what I would call a proper pub, no frills, beer and food, just as you like it! If you're in Simonstown come here for a pint!

Popped in here on a couple of occasions while staying in Simon's Town. A real traditional pub. We always received good service and liked the selection of beers available.

The restaurant has closed down and the only offerings were unappetizing burgers. Would imagine it is good for those who enjoy the old English pub scene
