Experience the best of South African braai (bbq) at this cool neighbourhood restaurant and wine bar in Farringdon.

Boasting one of the biggest live wood fired braai's in London and a relaxed, industrial vibe, this is a place to gather your friends, roll up your sleeves and get stuck in.

The menu focuses on sharing platters of juicy, tender meat smoked to perfection over Sekelbos Wood imported from Namibia to give it an authentic South African flavour. Enjoy spiced pork belly skewers, traditional boerewors sausages and sheep chops in a sticky apricot marinade.

It’s not all about the meat, as proved by a selection of vegetarian curries, mussel potjie and gourmet salads, as well as the fluffy beer bread which is baked in-house.

The wine list showcases labels from throughout South Africa, from Swartland to Stellenbosch, while the atmospheric bar downstairs is the perfect place to sample a cocktail or two… the Saffa Mule is an explosion of exotic flavours including rooibos, ginger and lime.
