Not the illicit beer hall of South African townships, our Shebeen, styled after the Cape wineries, offers unique food in an engaging setting. Presented with peerless South African hospitality, our menu reflects the multiculturalism of the Southern African palate. From spicy African peri-peri sauce and Dutch farmer's Boer sausage to pub-style fish 'n chips, you will explore a cuisine of surprising diversity. Allow us to host your next dinner party, or simply meet your mates in the pub for a pint. Cheers!
