Welcome to the Red Herring Restaurant

If it’s alfresco dining you’re after then the deck or garden areas is the place to be, relax and enjoy the breath taking view that stretches from Chapman’s Peak across to Kommetjie or if you prefer the restaurant offers more of an intimate and cosy environment with a large fireplace for those cold rainy winter nights but if all you want is an ice cold beer and to enjoy the lasts sporting action then head on upstairs to the pub where man’s best friend is more than welcome. The Red Herring a place to sit back and relax with friends, family and pets while our dedicated staff tend to all your dining needs.
