Launch Date Wednesday 19th March 2014!
It has been an exciting time for us watching the transformation of Forries and we are pleased and proud to announce that we are launching our new-look Forries on Wednesday 19th March 2014 from 5.00pm
We are particularly pleased with our new interactive cellar which has been designed to enhance your beer experience as it documents the history of Forries beer and Newlands.
We will shortly be introducing nouveau beer tastings under the guidance of our qualified staff, where you will be able to sample some of the 30-plus different draughts that will be stored in the cellar.
We have introduced an even more extensive wine cellar and are pleased to be able to showcase a variety of our great South African wines.
Our brand new state of the art kitchen is producing magical meals off our new menu.
Particularly successful has been the introduction of our Picadas and flatbreads.
Picadas are a gourmet’s delight because you get a variety of different tastes depending on what you feel like and our flatbreads are baked on the premises and have a variety of exciting toppings.
Come and enjoy the new-look Forries experience!
Forries has undergone some radical surgery over the past few months and the result is going to be a new and improved Forries.
Renovations are now in their final stages and we are sure you will be as excited and impressed with the face-lift as we are.
The whole of Forries has been gloriously opened up, which makes it feel lighter and brighter.
We have fitted a beautiful new bar and bar counter, a state of the art open cellar, a sunny deck outside the front and a canopy over the garden area.
Our brand spanking new kitchen is fully operational and churning out delicious meals from our new and innovative menu under the guidance of our own master chef, and our new Pizza oven adds another dimension to the taste of a good pizza.
There are still lots of finishing touches to be done, but we invite you to come in for a drink and a meal from our new menu and experience our stunning, new image, ….. FORRIES
Valedictory ceremonies take place at this time of the year in all our schools for Matric learners who have written their prelims and are ready to write their final exams and then leave school. The schools in our surrounding area – SACS, Bishops, Rondebosch, Wynberg, Rustenberg, Reddam and Westerford – have chosen Forries as their favoured venue to celebrate the end of their 12 years of schooling slog.

The 28th September 2013 was a big day for South Africa – the Springboks were playing against Australia in the finals of the International Rugby Tour, and to Cape Town’s delight, they were playing at Newlands.
Rugby matches at Newlands are particularly busy days at Forries, and a match of this magnitude was expected to be one of the best with supporters of both sides coming out in droves.
Forries decided that this was the ideal opportunity to garner some interest for our chosen charities – those that are involved with SAVING OUR RHINOS. (more…)
