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. Or snack on the bar basket and choose items such as riblets, chilli poppers and calamari at Dale’s Black Angus.

FORMER BOK PLAYER’S BAR WITH A BEER GARDEN
Owned by South African rugby star Bob Skinstad and friend Dougie Boyes, The Toad is made for sports fans, by sports fans. The bar features five screens, a beer garden, affordable pub grub, and lager on tap.

GRUB, QUIZ NIGHTS AND TWO PROJECTORS
The 155-year-old haunt and nautical-themed Firemans Arms will be showing all the World Cup matches. It has nine 46” screens and two projectors, so if you don’t have rugby fever, one of the other screens can be used for other sports, but rugby sound will take preference.

WATCH THE BOKKE WITH A SPRINGBOK PLATTER
Live music, beer and food such as nachos, hake, calamari and steak, that’s what you get at Somerset West’s premium pub and grill Springbok Blues, besides the rugby. 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. Bring your friends or partner, but leave the kids at home (over 23s only) and take advantage of the extensive wine and cocktail list. 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. South Africa’s matches are the main priority but if the Boks aren’t playing and you want some rugby action, ask the staff to put on other matches. 
Other Sports: Yes, when requested.
