Bars, Pubs and Restaurants Screening Nothing But The Rugby World Cup

And several others that will put it on if you ask

These seven venues are as crazy about the rugby as you are. The Toad’s co-owner is former Springbok player Bob Skinstad. At the Oblivion Wine Bar and Restaurant you can watch the game everywhere: the rooftop garden, on the projector screens downstairs, or big screen TVs in the intimate upstairs section, and at Springbok Blues a Springbok game can be enjoyed with a Springboks Platter. 

HALF-A-KILO RIBS FOR R80 AND SPECIALS
The Victorian Times Pub is your rugby home away from home. Come in early and play a game of pool, chill with a beer and bring your partner for dinner while you watch the Rugby World Cup over their shoulder. And with an assortment of specials, who wouldn't feel right at home? Your Friday should start with happy hour at 5pm, then move to 500g of ribs for R80, while watching the game streamed on several screens.
Other Sports: Yes, but rugby takes priority.

A BAR BASKET WITH YOUR BEERS
Catch the game at the Milnerton steakhouse’s bar. Besides its signature dish, the Special Reserve 21 (a side-seared fillet tenderloin matured for 21 days), Dale’s Black Angus has a lunch menu that pairs well with a nice, cold beer. It’s available from midday until 5pm, Monday to Saturday, and features meals such as nachos, prego steak roll and chips.

Order signature platters named after the Wallabies, All Blacks and, our favourite, the Springboks Platter of beef frikkadels, beef sosaties, pork belly ribs, crumbed calamari, crumbed chicken and potato wedges.

ROOFTOP GARDEN, PROJECTORS AND BIG SCREENS
For an open-air stadium-like experience watch on the rooftop garden of Oblivion Wine Bar and Restaurant.

You can also grab a pizza or burger while watching the Bokke in action. Games can also be watched on the projector screens downstairs, big screen TVs in the intimate vintage upstairs section.
