The Forresters Arms or “Forries” as it is mostly referred to is a traditional English pub with a large beer garden. Always buzzing, particularly when there are big games showing on the big screens (of which there are many). A favourite spot for Cape Town’s students ensures a good heartbeat and atmosphere both inside the bar as well as in the garden. Not known for its food, but they dish up some of the best pizza’s in town (try the Carpaccio and rocket pizza).
If you’re looking for somewhere to sink a few drafts over a big game, then look no further…you can even get a table outside with your own beer tap.
