The starter platters include such delights as macaroni cheese balls, chicken wings, deep-fried biltong and jalapeño poppers. Apart from being quite delicious, some thought has also clearly gone into naming them. Apart from the Sausage Fest, Deep-Fried Man and Soul Platter, there is also the Puff Puff Pass, described as a blazing selection of smoked boerewors, chicken lollipops, smoked ribs (lamb and pork) and onion rings.

There are various other sections offering snacks, salads, brunch items, sandwiches and superb burger. Try the Killer Kraut, which comes with sauerkraut, mustard, chips, smoky honey-glazed bacon, Jolly Monk flavoured mayo, pickles, and lettuce. Other wonderful burgers include the Drunken Hombre, The No-Bro, the Bid Daddy Stuffed Burger and the Blue Marrow Burger.

Those who may not want burgers could dine on ribs and steaks and, if you have space left, there are some equally decadent desserts to try.

They currently offer around 30 beers on tap (including an uncommon stout on tap), with an additional 228 bottled beer varieties that include non-alcoholic beers. In addition to a beer taster, they now also have a gin taster featuring a range of artisan-produced gins such as Woodstock and Malfy. Continuing the trend of offering interesting tipples, they also have some great whiskies (including a good choice of Japanese whiskies).

They have a friendly bunch of servers led by expert PJ Waugh. He is enthusiastic and passionate about his job, and will provide intelligent suggestions for those who may be timid about the large selection of beverages.

The restaurant offers wonderful outside fire baskets as well as gas heaters for those months when even Pretoria turns cold. The restaurant does have space inside, shared with the large bar that houses the multitude of beers on tap, but is predominantly an outside venue and is often jam-packed inside and out.

The owners are the creators of one of the most successful beer festivals in Pretoria, and offer other educational services such as Academy Night, where they feature an invited brewer to talk about their brand and ethos. They also do wine and gin nights following the same model.

    Fantastic tasting food! The variety is insane and the portions are great! One burger meal and you're stuffed (the good kind) and ready for a nap. Grace, our waitress, was so sweet, we loved her service. The only downside is that they were out of a lot of the drinks we wanted to order, sadly. It's a lekker place, but mainly student prone, which is good for business I bet, but not my kind of vibe. It also gets packed to the max so book early.
    A firm favourite and go-to after work restaurant. Added bonus is the rugby broadcast, ALL the beers and proper pub food. Excellent, good quality food and very vibey restaurant.
    Wow! I love everything about this place. Best burgers and beer in town. Great job everyone involved.
    Great place to hang around, relax and spend time with friends. The service is something they can definitely improve on. If you aren't eating the best option is actually just to go to the bar yourself and not wait on waiter service. Food is good - give the jalapeno poppers a try! All round best place to casually spend time with friends in Pretoria area.
