We had our faculty dinner recently at The Coachman and I must say that I was quite impressed. The place is cozy, unpretentious and has a very English pub feel to it. The waitresses were very attentive and friendly and I loved the atmosphere of the place. We were ordering from a set menu, so I admit that I didn't expect much, so I was pleasantly impressed with the food. My soup, was not the best, so I ended up eating the my colleague's chicken livers which were in a delicious creamy sauce and also got to sample the oysters which were nice and fresh. The winner for the evening was the lamb chops, soft juicy , well seasoned and just melted in my mouth. If you're in Port Elizabeth, I say don't go for the decor, but go there for the lamb chops!

Arrived during a cold night in Port Elizabeth and was met by the warmest hospitality. The service was superb with the owner checking in to make sure our evening was perfect. The lamb shank was recommended and wisely so. It was melt in your mouth good served with veggies.
The decor is warm and inviting and I will be back.

We've been to both venues, but prefer the Coachman in Cape Road. Nice and quiet. Great food and service. Our favourite place.

Without a doubt the best restaurant with the best views in PE. The service is amazing and the food is great. They can sometimes cremate the steaks, but the service and atmosphere make up for the odd mistake.
