Seemed very popular with the young on a Friday night and a pleasant place to enjoy coffee and drinks in a shady courtyard after the market and shops on Saturday morning.

We like it here. It was our first stop on arriving in Franschhoek to kill a little time before checking into our hotel. It hadn't even connected that it was valentines day until I was given a rose and a little choccie. Nice touch! We also visited on an evening where the atmosphere was buzzy and had a pizza which was really tasty. An all round winner of a pub!

Came here before the wine tram on the promise of proper pork sausages. They delivered a fantastic full English with quality ingredients that tasted like it could’ve been from home. We have really enjoyed more sophisticated restaurants in Franschhoek but sometimes it’s nice just to have something more familiar, especially before drinking wine all day!

Nice pub. The food was ok but not great like most places in Franschhoek but its relaxed, reasonable prices and service is good. Inside and outside dining and drinking and good music.
