Ferryman's - the birthplace of Castle Tank Beer!  Great Food, Craft Beer and Bands 365 Days a year!

Ferryman's Tavern, which opened in 1989, was the first tenant at the Waterfront. It has grown in popularity ever since!

Ferryman's is able to cater for everyone. From the outside beer garden with a children’s play area and jungle gym, to the sports fanatic watching matches in the pub, to the restaurant for cosy family meals around the fire in winter.

The charming, 120-seater non-smoking restaurant area, furnished with wooden tables and bentwood chairs, and large windows set into the exposed stone walls offer superb views to Table Mountain. 

Be sure to check out the Ferrymans Tavern’s packed schedule of live entertainment, with local bands playing every evening. Plus, for the sports fans, we’ve got big screen TVs playing all the big matches.

Ferrymans restaurant is a popular choice for private parties, birthdays and corporate functions.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Original Waterfront Tavern!
