We popped into Tipples as we mistakenly thought that they had a fish and chip special. The special in fact was half price burgers which we enthusiastically embraced even though we are Banters. We each had the avocado and bacon burger without the rolls but we did cheat a bit and had deep fried onion rings. My husband had a... More

Before visiting make sure to go to foreign exchange. South African Rand has no value here! They ignored South Africans like death. Maybe they are under impression that only foreigners give Tipples (tips) which maybe more important than service. We ask for a manu and almost an hour later we again begged for a menu which we received 20 minutes... More

Only caters for people from outside South Africa! Sat and waited for 30min with NOBODY attending to us! Had to go and fetch our own drinks at the bar. Table next to us had visitors from oversees. All waiters attended only to them. Not recomended if your from South Africa and visiting Hermanus!

Bit basic but good beer and service. Only had lunchtime snacks but did the job and we went back several times. Other Tipples on way to Cape Town about 10 minutes out of Hermanus is as good.

We (I) wanted to watch the Chelsea v West Ham which was starting at 10pm local time and a lovely waitress at the Pear Tree said we should try Tipples. It's a little tucked away and at frist you wonder it tourists would be welcome or made to feel uncomfortable. Well we were make very welcome and really looked after... More

This is an excellent sport bar. It serves the best spare ribs in Hermanus. The prices are reasonable.

Called in here the first night of our stay. The staff were friendly and helpful so after our first beer decided to stay for a bite to eat . It's a fairly basic bar but the food and drink are good and cheap and the place wasn't rowdy . So give it a try.

Basic decor and linoleum floors makes this place look like it escaped from the 70's. In fact it reminds me of a place I visited in the 80's. This is basically a local watering hole with a restaurant attached. If you are a smoker you will love the huge smoking section. Food was average, drinks were expensive, atmosphere was flat... More

Went here twice. Very affordable small plates concept. Fun to mix and match with your table. Good wine choices as well.
