This pub is located in a courtyard behind the French Connection. It is a very traditional pub style property with a good selection of beer and reasonably priced local wine.

We had a light lunch here. The pub is in the middle of town, but set back from the main street. We had a table in the courtyard area, which was perfect for lunch, cool and with good shade. There are a good range of choices on the menu, from light bites and snacks to full meals. Service was excellent and efficient.

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!
