Invest in chairs , the angle is 90degrees a disaster for the majority of customers. Replace a substantial part of your chairs. The food is good as described by other TripAdvisor friends. The chairs of the Ocean basket across the river are much better. So...More

This pub / restaurant / brewery is most certainly one to be recommended. The in house-brewed beers are a positive attraction here and the beers are very good indeed. The menu is varied and lovely meals are to be had. You can most certainly try...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.
