Food
The menu seems to be a fanciful mix of someone’s favourite nostalgic noshings, taken up a notch in gastropub-style aspirations. From lamb shank pie and lobster mac and cheese to jaffles (that come in various options, including pulled pork and Durban curry fillings), burgers, steaks and deconstructed pastas, there’s a variety of weird and wonderful comfort food options. The pork belly is one of the signature dishes and is a hearty and satisfying plate of creamy mustard mash, tangy and flavourful cabernet jus and crispy crackling garnish.

The fish and chips is simple enough, so it’s best to opt for the more robust dishes if you’re craving a generous helping of flavour. The winners are the burgers, such as the Cherry Cabernet option – a beef patty, smothered in a cherry cabernet sauce, topped with caramelized onions and Emmenthal cheese and hugged between brioche buns.

Desserts are classics with little twists. The mojito cheesecake is a fun take on a Durban favourite, topped with lemongrass and lime syrup. The white chocolate and cranberry bread and butter pudding is indulgence that suspends any calorie counting.

Drinks
If saccharine sweet cocktails are to your liking, go for that, otherwise stick to the regular mixers. The spirits selection is large and impressive. For gin fans, the bar is very well stocked with various craft gins. And speaking of gin, they come in regular and giant!

Ambience
The evenings are abuzz with loud cheerful conversations from a crowd of locals, tourists, executives and regulars. It’s a beautifully decorated venue that has a large cocktail bar in the centre and various seating options flanking it. It’s a relaxed atmosphere, rendered classy and vibrant by the patrons and the décor.

Service
Indulge in drinks and conversation as the service can take some time.

And…
For craft beer lovers there’s a “flights” section on the menu! Either the Chef’s Harvest Board, which is piled with cheeses, candied walnuts, fruit and cured meats and paired with four different mini craft beer tastings; or the slightly more restrained Beer & Brat, which comes with the same amount of beer but with sausage bites, pretzels and a cheese sauce.

    Best Gin House In Durban. If you looking for a Perfect well Executed Gin Cocktail, this is the place. I had such an amazing time, drinks were Amazing, I ate the Pie of The Day, Woow that gravy I will never forget. The Pie was soo meaty and Succulent , went well with my drinks. I still have never had a pie like that. Will definitely be coming back
    I have never written a public review of a restaurant however this place just blew me away! The interior is elegant and tasteful without being overly posh. The bathrooms are immaculate and stylish. The menu is original without being over the top and pretentious. The food is delicious and generous in portion. Full of flavour and freshness! The only tiny con was the waitress who could have shown a little more life and been a bit friendlier but luckily the rest of this amazing experience overshadowed where she was lacking. This place is by far the best restaurant I have been to in the past few years! Made me want to move to Umhlanga ;)
