We reserved a place beforehand and that was a very good idea. The restaurant was packed. Good music, great food, although we were told beforehand it would take awhile to prepare the food and we must o...rder asap. But in the meantime we just relaxed and enjoyed the mist of the sprinklers which helped alot with the heat. My husband enjoyed the beer and samples of beer. Great place. Not for people who don't like loud music though. Prices very cheap. R85 for huge hake and chips and sauces as well as the chicken snitzel with chips amd cheese sauce. All the other food looked great serve to other people looked great. You'll stay there at least 2 hours. Thanks to waiters and owner for great service - keep it up. See More

Maybe it was a bad time of the year.. boxing day? But we will not go back to this place. The drinks (some jolly holly craft beer) were off - cuppacino tasted like boiling water with fat free milk, th...e hake and chips was oky but looked very unappetizing. Sorry but if you run a restaurant- preparing food and drinks- you have to keep it up to standard or even better. We had an awfull lunch. See More

Good music, awesome vibe (I didn't have to worry about my kid being too loud �) The platter for 1 was tasty (the hake on it was excellent) Well priced (R250 for 2 beers, 2 cooldrinks, a milkshake and ...the platter) Loved the sprayers as it was such a hot day. See More

Hi we had lunch with you yesterday and my wife ordered hake, very nice. My daughter and I had the wings aan popper platter for two, very disappointed - I mean two poppers and 3 wings with bit of chips... for R130? And where is the precious lovely blue cheese sauce that always came with the poppers? I love this place but was a bit dissapointed yesterday. See More

We were there on a Thursday for lunch. The Mustang IPA was great but the Pils was a bit bland. We had the sausage platter, lamb and beef burger and they were very cooperative in giving a great salad i...nstead of chips. Food much better than I expected and served fast. Very good. See More

Not very impressed. Reservation was not found and waited an hour to be served lunch. All battered items (chicken, onions, hake) were burnt and oily, and the chicken wings were ice cold. That was R120 wasted

This place is the absolute pits!!, the food sucks, the service sucks and the music is so loud you cant have a conversation. Food was BAD, chicken wings served frozen..., chili poppers turned out to be... awful battered fish!, the beer was not bad but do not waste your hard earned money on this place.� See More

We made a booking, which they gave away, even though we were early. Waited an hour for our food, chicken wings cold and not fully cooked. The jalapeño poppers turned out to be fish fingers. Music fa...r to loud. Just not great See More

More than an hour wait for a platter. Chicken wings was the pits - ice cold with pourings of store bought peri-peri and barbeque sauces applied liberally - urghhh! Who taught these guys about batter? ...Stodgy, unhealthily oily and not complimentary at all to what was being covered/protected during the cooking process. What was good - the chicken strips - succulent and crumbed (no awful batter, probably bought) and the cold beer and cider. Later - an unflinching cockroach on the counter in the ladies cloakroom.

Great atmosphere, the live music goes well with the craft beers 😊 The food takes a while but is worth the wait. If you are going to charge R10+ for sauces like peri-peri, mayo or sweet chilli it shou...ld be homemade! Been twice, both times we received great service. See More

The beer five star, the waiter five star, the vibe five star ... the food never arrived. The kitchen can't cope with a busy Sunday.

Had a great time. The food was lovely and the service was on point. The was music too loud thou but the quality of the sound made up for it.

What a fantastic experienced. We were seated rather quickly and served straight away. Staff were very efficient and cheerful. Drinks were cold, food was great & prices were very reasonable. Andre the ...manager even came over and introduced himself and had quick chat. Hospitality like this, is seldom found, which is a rather sad fact. Over all, a really great experience and I will recommend The Cockpit Brewhouse to many others. Thank you Andre and all your staff. See More

Wow. What a shocker. Food took more than an hour and a half. The food was cold. Sent it back and the wrong order came to the table. The waiters is utterly useless, manager even worse. When asked to sp...eak to the manager, we had to stand up and look for her, found her drinking at the bar, and wow what an unpleasant experience. You will never see us again, and believe me none of our friends. I truely hope this gets to the owner. See More

Best place to visit in Cullinan for total craft beer - this you have to try at least once in your lifetime - my thumbs up to the Brew Master! The food was excellent - best Jalapeño Popper...s outside of Mexico with a nice dipper - best served with a Black Widow (or three)!!! Chip Basket and Mustang - definite must have! The milkshake was actually equivalent to nowadays "double thick"...hmmm everything was just right! I can carry on...but lets just digress and decide for yourself!!! "...I'll be back..." � See More

Good morning Cockpit Friends,

You may have noticed over the past few months that our beloved restaurant have gone through changes which were not positive.

We are excited to announce two changes this morning!


1. We are in the process of restoring The Cockpit Brewhouse to its former glory! In order to do much needed work in record time, we will be closed for renovations & training during rest of February. We sincerely apologize for any cancellation or inconvenience and hope that you will appreciate the reasons why.

2. Old friends of The Cockpit Brewhouse, Henry & Linda, are the new owners! They love The Cockpit Brewhouse as much as those who helped build it, and want to see the Cockpit Brewhouse soar again. They look forward to welcoming you back soon!

In the meantime, come and say hello to us at The Clarens Craft Beer Festival. We look forward to welcoming you back March 2018!
