Pleasant old Stellenbosch pub with a long tradition as a favourite student watering hole. Limited pub lunch menu, but the food is of a decent quality. During the university terms it is a busy and vibey place at night with a refreshing mix of people of all ages.

This is an epic place and has been for a long time, love it. New management has put in some great new ideas. Never eaten here before, the Chef was on holidays but should be proud of the job done in his absence. Only 3 things on menu but each lovely. The coleslaw was epic chips good, steak and burgers...

if you are open and accept some drunk people around you but still a lovely and interesting crowd you should visit this place. Young and old are going there but again be prepared to see som drunk students and locals spending their time there :-)

I think we arrived too late for a proper lunch and this place might be better than we experienced - jacket potato took ages and chips warmed up - not great

Warm greeting, two beers later and a gigantic Akker burger, it was great. The owner, staff and customers were fantastic company, the conversation never dried up. From the outside appears to be a beer Keller, internally an old fashioned pub. Went back to watch rugby, but was closed, probably due to the Bok loosing to Japan, Stellenbosch was deserted that...

While visiting Stellenbosch we decided to try De Akker as they had a special advertised on their burgers. What a surprise. The burgers are top notch. Service by the barman and server was excellent. Needless to say the next day we were back for another meal and the experience was once again good. Food excellent. Service good and quick. A... More
