Just a proper pub, with sports, a good selection of beers. Watched two rugby matches here. Enjoyed the vibe and chilled. Didn't eat the food but believe their ribs are recommended.

Two superb steak meals were eaten in this very lively atmospheric pub whilst my son and I were at the hillclimb. Service was excellent and the steaks on both occasions came exactly as ordered on cast iron platters. We also went back there for some late night drinks after eating at Fresh line fish

We love the chilled environment of this old school pub. Loads of character in the walls, bar, ceiling. The pub grub is great. Calamari a little tough- but tasty and lovely and crunchy crumb. Great service.

We had lunch here one day and weren't terribly impressed. We both had fish and calamari and found both were coated with a very thick batter and rather greasy. Service was fine and price was OK ( 95 Rand) but not a place that I would return to or recommend to others.

This was opposite our hotel so called in on both nights. Everywhere else seems to close around 9.30 but Oldes is open slightly later and you can get a a nice drink at a reasonable price

The service qas good only about 12 people outside and no one inside. The Seafood platter special was just that. Over cooked crummed prawns... the ones you buy ready to fry. The Eisbein was better but not the best. Just and average pub with average crub
