The Village Idiot

Let's mosy on down to the pub for a pint...


The duo who brought you Cape Town’s hippest night spot, Aces ’n’ Spades, has opened a relaxed neighbourhood pub-style eatery just up the road. The large space is divided into a bar area that’s presided by an oversized ostrich named Oskar, a lounge, dining area and pool(table) room.

The relaxed vibe is just the thing to take the edge off a hard day’s work and the food is surprisingly good. We recommend the peri-peri chicken and Tata ma chance ribs.

We love the South African-flavoured pub fare, including boerewors burgers, braai boards and bunny chow.

Opened July 2015
Opening times Tuesday – Thursday, 3pm to 12am
