Owner's description

An after-work brewsky at Forries is a Newlands tradition. The large convivial pub is the place to be on important match days, lubricated with plenty of beer, of course.

    Great atmosphere after a trying year, sitting under the trees on a summers day a definite must. The best margaritas in town by far. Calamari with cauliflower rice was so divine and burgers and beers perfect for a day of watching sport. The beautiful building has some amazing history as well.
    I had such a bad experience at this place I made a reservation phoned in twice to confirm, yet I got there with my family who came all the way from betties bay and was still not seated and got no attention from waiters what so ever. It was Thursday evening and after browsing some restaurants in cape town, to host my graduation supper, I came across forties and it look perfect. , was so disappointed and left to go to prime in Claremont where I had no reservation but got a table for 8 immediately in a nice private section of the restaurant and managed to get the bitter taste Foresters arms left in my mouth, washed down with good food and family fun. Defs don't go to this place its not what it seems, staff are clumsy, service is bad, and the ambiance is upsetting and misleading.
    Had a great experience at Forries on Friday evening. We popped in with our kids for an early evening meal. The place was packed but service from the bar was swift and the staff went out of their way to make up a table for us (4 adults and 4 kids) and then served us the most delicious ribs, steak pie, calamari and prego rolls. They have a separate kids menu, which is great so you don't have to fiddle about trying to share adult meals amongst the kids, and while it was too cold to be outside at the play area (which is a total win in summer), our lot were very happy munching on their calamari & chips and swigging chocolate milkshakes (which incidentally come in three sub-flavours - normal chocolate, Milo or Nutella!). Will definitely be going again.

    Bad service. We booked a table for the rugby on Saturday 26/03/12. Upon arrival the manager forgot to write down the reservation. With no apologies he tried to make a table that was in the throughfare between the kithchen and the toilets with hardly any view of the TV. Hence we went to a neighbouring restaurant to watch the game where we had good service and a great view of the TV. That's the last time I go watch the game at Forries.
