Description:
Ferryman's Tavern, which opened in 1989, was the first tenant in the Waterfront and is still run by the original owners. It has established, over the years, a loyal following of regulars, both from Cape Town and further afield.

The two sheds constructed of quarried bluestone, Oregon beams and solid teak pillars were converted with great care to ensure that Ferryman's retained many of the features of the original buildings.

The old fashioned bar, brick-paved floor and stone fireplace enhance the character of the establishment to create a superb pub atmosphere. The upstairs non-smoking restaurant with its wooden tables and bentwood chairs add a touch of old fashioned charm. The large feature window has splendid views of Table Mountain.

The atmosphere is further enhanced by exposed stone walls, and an interesting collection of old prints and photographs of Cape Town and the harbour in days gone by. The beer garden provides plenty of additional seating, and large awnings ensure that it is shady in summer and sheltered from the southeaster in spring.

Ferryman's is proud to be able to offer a wide variety of beers from all over the world, including a comprehensive selection of local brews. The tavern even has its own unique Ferryman's Ale which is brewed exclusively for the pub. The menu features a wide selection of meals with traditional pub favourites such as Fish & Chips, Curry & Rice and Chicken Pie. There is a ?Daily Specials Board? that offers other South African dishes including fresh seafood meals.

Sunday Buffet, 17 May 2011
Reviewer: John P (Adventurousness: What is the chef's special today?)

Comments: It is great to see that you can still get an all you can eat buffet without driving to the wine farms. We paid R120 each and enjoyed a soup starter, a choice of 5 or 6 mains and a hot pudding, there were salads there but the weather did not permit. It was really great to sit by the fire and enjoy good home style cooking.
