My husband and I reserved a table for dinner, we wanted a quiet spot. They offered us a table in the cellar / basement of the old Wharf. Lovely historic photos hang on the walls. We recommend the beer / lager and definitely one of the steaks!

We were a table of 15 people and everyone was happy with their food. The hake and chips was amazing and only R70! The prawns however were tasty but extremely expensive - medium size prawns for R280 and slightly bigger ones for R360 - even in Johannesburg this is expensive! Service was excellent considering we were such a large group... More

We were told they were very busy and the kitchen is small and we would need to wait for our food. We accepted this. The food did take... More

The pub was open whilst others were not and offered one of the highest levels of service we experienced in Port Alfred at a restaurant. The staff were... More

The setting is great and the food even better. The chef/owner is very involved with all aspects and we had seen him assist and move amongst the guests. We enjoyed the craft beers on offer and would recommend this venue to all our friends and family.

We popped in for a taste of their Craft beers and took a chance there would be a table lunch. The Chef was great, the staff were very accommodating. We ended up tasting all their beers, kids all loved the burgers, finished the lot. Fish and Chips are highly recommended as is the calamari and Pot pie. We'll done...we will... More

The "Wharf Street Brew Pub" is situated on the historic Wharf Street in Port Alfred. It is housed in the oldest commercial building in Port Alfred completed in 1853. The decor is simple with pictures of old Port Alfred being the focal pointWe have micro Brewery attached to us and sell three of our own beers. Our food is a selection of Pub Style food like fish and chips, schnitzels and burgers ranging to freshly caught line fish, in house matured steaks and a host of other things in between. We pride our selves on good food and service so please pop in if only to sample our local brew, you might well end up staying for a bite to eat as many do after seeing our menu.
