The latest News and Events at Foresters Arms



Foresters Arms is proud to introduce to you our new Beer Cellar where we have a fine selection of Draught Beer on tap.

The cellar is a unique idea to South Africa.
Whilst all the brick and clad mortar dates back many years the channels of beer are now all running underground to our beer taps in the front bar. Our specially designed copper and bronze taps can accommodate up to 40 different types of draughts.

You will find as you enter the cellar on the wall to the left interesting reading of the titbits of facts of the above throughout history. On the back wall you will find all the ingredients and recipes on how to make beer. On the right hand wall you will see memorabilia along with rolling slides of customers testimonials and their introduction to ‘Forries’ as we are fondly known, pictures of our Forries rugby teams, customers and  even customer-streakers, along with other information. In the centre of the cellar you will find the heart of it with all the draught beers we have on offer displayed.

Forries New Look Launch6

The cellar is a growing project with more information being consistently added. If you have an interesting story you may like to share, when and how you were first introduced to Forries please give your details to a manager on duty. We would love to contact you and add your story to our growing history.

For your pleasure, we have introduced Beer Tastings, which can be done individually or as group functions.
You can also choose to do a blind tasting to test your palate and your skills in identifying the different beers!

The New Look Forries

Forries is looking awesome!!

Inside the restaurant it is lighter, brighter and open with two attractive fire-places to ward off the winter chill. Outside is still as pleasant as ever with tables under arbours of ivy, bougainvillea and honey-suckle.
For winter comfort there is a canopy that is drawn over to protect our customers from the icy winter winds, but yet still able to enjoy the beauty of the Forries garden.

Our menu has been changed to include our Forries Picadas. Picadas are similar to Tapas – they are bite size morsels of taste sensation.
Perfect to whet the appetite! Our a’ la carte and pizza menus have some exciting additions, all beautifully prepared and presented, and our new home-baked flatbreads have proven to be very popular.

We also have a Beer Tasting Cellar. With close on 20 draughts currently on tap and with the eventual capacity for 49 draughts, this provides the perfect opportunity to test-taste some of the new craft beers that are on the market and part of the Forries stable.
Take a stroll through our beer cellar and catch the history of beer making in Newlands from the first beer ever brewed in the area.
