Owner's description

The tucked away Hoghouse Barbeque, built in an old garage, has a view of the brewery and is relaxed, cosy and industrially-styled with wood-burning fireplaces. They offer a Texan-style smokehouse experience with a dash of local flavour for good measure. The menu is based on low and slow-style smoked meats, cooked for several hours (from morning until dusk) in their custom smoker.

Meat is ordered per 100g and served with your choice of delicious vegetable side dishes and can be enjoyed in the restaurant or in their upstairs taproom. They procure from small producers and farmers and use the best-quality ingredients because they believe it makes a difference to how your food tastes.

They serve fresh Hoghouse Ales on tap and their unique wine list is a selection of small batch wines available by the glass or bottle that are not available anywhere else. They have an interesting selection of spirits, including whiskies, gins and craft cocktails. They also offer artisanal gelatos and their home-baked heavenly Pasteis de Nata for dessert.

    Food was slightly pricey but definitely worth the money.Their in-house craft beers and signature cocktails is exceptionally well made. The dim lighting and cosy/warm ambience makes it a romantic dinner date for your loved one.
    We had dinner here with a group of friends and it was fantastic. A great place to go with a group as you can order many things and have a feast. I got to try a large part of the menu. For starters the croquettes where fantastic as well as the chili poppers and aranchini balls. The pig tails had a syrup over it so was sweet which I did not expect as I stopped reading after pigs tails and was looking forward to crispy salt bombs (not bad though). Yes we did order all the meat, obviously.... The burnt ends was a standout for me as well as the pork belly. For sides the best onion rings ever and also nice crispy chips. The grilled aubergine is also a must try. For dessert i tried the pasteis de natas as well as the salted caramel ice cream, both was fantastic. Oh and they have great beers and the wine list has unlabeled wines with only numbers and the type of wine and we had a fantastic shiraz that I need to find out what it is. Will definitely be back
    If you're a meat lover this will be your favourite restaurant. In truth I can't find a reason why this isn't our new favourite restaurant experience in Cape Town. Diaz Tavern, the Greenhouse and Il Leone now have a worthy challenger :-) Thank you to the chef and staff for an amazing evening all round. We've already booked for next week.
    Every time I go back to the Hoghouse Brewing Company, I find something new to enjoy - without ignoring old favourites of course! This really is a friendly neighbourhood local where everybody knows your name. And the food is fabulous too - and not just the meat. What always impresses me about the Hoghouse is that as much attention is paid to the vegetable sides as the meaty mains. My favourite sides: the classic rocket, parmesan and avocado salad is a great light and acidic accompaniment to the meat. When it's available, don't miss out on the crispy delicious Brussel sprouts with bacon. And in winter, warm up with a beautiful aubergine melanzane. For the meat, my favourite is the beef brisket with pickles, but the chicken marinated in buttermilk is delicious - an upmarket KFC. And leave space for dessert - the gelato (especially salted caramel) is the best in Cape Town, and let's not forget the yummy pastries, headlined by the pastei de natas. Can't wait for my next visit...
    Loved our experience at Hog House. The food was delicious - aside from the smoky, juicy meat (we had short rib, lamb shoulder and pork belly), the crisp duck fat chips and brussels sprouts with bacon were standouts. But the absolute winner of the night was the INCREDIBLE pasteis de nata! Sjoe, worth the visit alone.
