Greensleeves Half Yards.
Order a half yard and take the glass home as a souvenir. It makes an original gift to remember your night out - for your clients, friends, or employees. Order a Yard on its own… a Yard with a colourful tasty crushed ice cocktail… Or a Yard with Craft Draught beer…The choice is yours. mmm… Decisions, decisions!
Our list of craft beers is growing every week. We now offer over 30 different local and imported craft beers, for you to enjoy. As well as 4 different draughts on tap, which can be ordered as a taster 0f 100ml, a glass or half yard of 500ml, a jug or a mug (if you don’t want to share!) of 1 litre, or a jug of 2 litres. Or taste all four! Beer drinking has never been as exciting, so come and experience the different styles and flavours of 12 different breweries. Add all this to the selection of SAB beers and beer is the answer! (Now what was the question?!)

"South Africa's most lavish feast; an impressive re-creation of an era."
"An evening of roistering celebration in a superb atmosphere quite unlike the one from which you normally hail."
"... all those around me were having the time of their lives, red faced from mead, food and sheer exuberance. A unique experience in a splendid setting."
