Craft beer gastro pubs are popping up all over Johannesburg at the moment and are all the rage. There are some that miss the mark quite badly, but The Stanley Beer Yard is one of the few really cool, interesting ones. I think the decor, atmosphere and limited menu is the secret. You can only get burgers, kebabs, pregos and the like - my favourite is the pulled pork prego. Goes really well with a Steph Weiss. I'm not even a beer drinker, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. It is a self-service, order at the bar first, deal. Which means that you don't wait forever for a waiter to bring your order. It's really fun, festive and lovely outdoors in the sunshine. Do be warned that is you don't book and are a big group, you won't get a primo seat, if at all.
