Established in 1852 and nestled at the foot of our majestic mountains, in the leafy suburb of Newlands, Cape Town, Foresters Arms Restaurant and Pub (fondly referred to by the locals as Forries), is one of the oldest pubs in South Africa. Its welcoming ambiance provides guests with the opportunity to sit down, relax and enjoy a fine draught beer accompanied by a delicious meal selected from our varied gastro-pub menu.

Foresters Arms has definitely become part of the Global World and has many followers on many Continents.
In fact, it has been listed in the Guinness Book of Records for the most beer sold in the Southern Hemisphere
Nice warm classic old pub, spectacular wooden construction. Seating indoors and outside with lovely plants and trees. Dog and kid friendly with a jungle gym. Standard beers available fresh from the Newlands brewery, CBC and some craft options as well. 🍻
I have been going to this outstanding pub for many years. The service, the food and the beer have always been top quality, but ny favourite things there are the relaxed atmosphere and the friendliness of the staff. I will be going there many many times in the future!!
I have never had a bad meal, drink or experience at Forries. Not in the last 30'odd years that is. So if that isn't amazing excellence and consistency then I don't know.
A historical establishment to have a great meal with friends and family with a large selection of beer and wine!
Great service and the food and drinks were delicious. The safety protocols are well in place with the waitrons and patrons observing all necessary behaviour.
