A relaxed place to just chill, enjoy a few drinks and yummy food. The burgers are excellent! Very vibey, nice background music (when you can hear it) but not just for youngsters; seniors also very welcome :) Staff friendly and helpful.

We have only ever had drinks here but this is a great local bar. Drinks are well priced and there is a decent selection of craft beer.

We were fortunate to visit on a Wednesday, the burger and Hansa draft beer special was excellent value. One of the best burger and salads we have had for some time. Friendly waiter, relaxed atmosphere without being too noisy.

Good old George - same fare and good service with cold beer and decent food selection and biltong to snack on - multiple flat screens make it the place to head to for the footie - sorry Iceland!

Good vibe, efficient but nothing special about the food. Good Guinness though. Various establishments around that provide better food if that is more important to you than vibe
