Description: Barristers is an institution in the Southern suburbs of Cape Town. Having been founded in 1980, Barristers is in the heart of Newlands Village and is an old favorite of locals and international visitors alike. From the deck which looks out over the village circle, through the lively pub and into the welcoming Grill and Tudor Rooms, we offer good old fashioned values at reasonable prices. Barristers has a comprehensive menu, extensive range of draught beers and a huge wine list. Good Food, Great Wine, Warm Friends is a motto we believe in emphatically.

We just enjoy the pub lunch special for R45 so much.
We recommend ordering the chicken schnitzel or the fish and chips. The cottage pie is also very good.
This special is daily from 12pm to 6pm.
Great value.
You will pay R26 for a 500ml beer.
Good vibe.

This is a very busy restaurant and you really need to book especially if it is a Friday or Saturday, The fish was lovely and the service was excellent, would definitely go back here

Our experience was probably compromised due to the fact that is was extremely busy. Did get a free beer from the local brewery as it was a special friday. Food was acceptable but nothing special and prices were reasonable. service was slow.

These guys understand how to cook steak. And their portions are generous and of only the best SA beef. And according to my guests they evenly understand seafood and pasta dished too! Go try them for yourself!

As a creature of habit, Barristers is my choice for Saturday lunch with a special friend. This has been the routine for a couple of years now, so even the car guards are familiar and friendly and try really hard to manage the very busy car park.

The pub menu is half price before 6 pm, so it is great value for money and very tasty. Fish and chips, bangers and mash, the chicken livers are all tasty, but my personal favourite is the chicken schnitzel, which is consistently good. Washed down with some draught beer and followed by coffee, this is probably going to be the pattern for years to come.
