At the Muldersdrift edge of the Cradle of Humankind, included in the Magaliesberg Biosphere, an award winning establishment provides gastronomic delights that bring tears to the eyes of ex-pats.

In true Irish tradition, Gilroy Brewery produces superior beer – lager, Favourite, Traditional and Serious ales. The restaurant and beer garden serves wholesome meals, with a fresh twist on pub faire.

You can construct your own basket of nibbles, enjoy traditional battered fish with chips, pies so delicious you'll think you were home, and a selection of other dishes, some using the beer from the brewery to add extra flavour.

There is a children's menu, and a safe place for little ones to play. Older children will enjoy the activities and space Ngwenya Village offers.

After a laid-back afternoon of live music, great food and exceptional beer, visit the stalls in the village for gifts, arts and crafts.

Steve Gilroy is a micro brewer of renown, raconteur and a charming host. And recently this fame, his great beer and outstanding restaurant have put him in the World Spotlight.

The venue was nominated in the Telegraph’s “Best of British” awards, and reading what ordinary people have to say about this venue, evokes a feeling of pride. Well done to the Gilroy team for placing South Africa top of the list.


    “A great place to take the family for a outing. Take the kids along and enjoy the great atmosphere. Enjoy live music on Sundays, great food and of course, a fantastic Gilroy's ale made in the Micro-brewery on the premises! Highly recommended!”


    “The best British ale found outside of the U.K. available in one of the best settings in Johannesburg taking full advantage of our brilliant weather. Great live entertainment and weekly events that make Gilroy's my favourite.”
    “You absolutely cannot beat a Gilroy's pie washed down with a great Gilroy's beer on a Sunday afternoon whilst listening to rock n' rolls classics. The food, drink, vibe and entertainment are all astounding making Gilroys a clear 5 out of 5.”


    “I have been drinking Gil's beers for years and when he opened his restaurant I thought I had died and gone to heaven. The beer is excellent, the food great and the crack* is terrific. A worthy contender.”

*"Crack" is Irish slang for “good time/fun”
