Steak and AleDurban’s most popular eating, drinking and socializing venues.
Steak and Ale The story of Steak & Ale stretches back a decade, when an investor decided to make a change to Umhlanga Rocks’ Chartwell Drive that would begin the legend of one of Durban’s most popular eating, drinking and socializing venues. On the foundations of Catz Café, a locally popular coffee shop, the idea of adding a new venue to support the impending Fifa World Cup 2010 was born. The risks were enormous as the venue would need a complete overhaul, and directly across the road sat one of Durban’s oldest and most popular Irish pubs, The George. Without the fear of the unknown the work got underway setting up the venue that now stands tall with pride, energy and heritage.
