As per the other reviews, this location has moved to Queen Street close to Wale Street. The "dedicated parking" is small, not marked, almost impossible to find. The food is good. Unless you know the area very well, rather choose another more easily accessible place to eat.

What a fascinating old fashioned club. It was absolutely delightful. I loved the old furnishings and libraries. A real gentleman's club it must have been in its day. The silver service and service in general was astounding. Food more than excellent.

Here is a warm golden heart in the central cape town. The history of the colonial times swirling around. Place to park off away from bustle of city life. The food terrific. The atmosphere warm. The fires burn trough out winter.

Taxis to and from here were difficult at times. Very good Bar Staff. You need a Letter of Introduction if you are not a member.

I have eaten in the Club each vist to Cape Town over 15 years but in the beautiful premises behind the Mount Nelson Hotel, they have now moved back into their original premises given by Rhodes in Victoria street in Central Cape Town.

Leinster Hall exudes old world charm literally as it dates back to 1848 and was a private home. One of only 4 Victorian Villas of its style of architecture remaining since that graceful period in this part of Cape Town, the peace and quiet is most enjoyable, yet the warmth of welcome is consistent by its friendly staff. Old memorabilia... More

When entering the club you feel like back in the "good old days", very traditional but extremely friendly. Everybody is more than welcome!

The Cape Town Club - over 150 years old as an institution - is situated in a lovely old mansion, Leinster Hall, set in a nice garden just behind the Mount Nelson Hotel. Whilst the upstairs club rooms are for members only, the downstairs restaurant is open to the public in the evenings. Rooms inside are decorated in style, and... More
