Welcome to Fireman’s Arms

One of Cape Town's Oldest Pubs

’s Arms welcomes you with the ambiance of an old English pub; the dark, rich polished wooden bars and tables, memorabilia such as fireman’s helmets, an old ladder, a fireman’s pole, and snippets from sport history, make you think back to a time of old.

Established in 1864, the proudly South African pub has moved along with the times, keeping the original building to create a historic hotspot that serves as a haven for locals and tourist alike. With a setting that is anything but contemporary, Fireman’s Arms provides excellent service in a sanctuary that offers relaxation, satiates thirst with a variety of beverages and fills the hungry, with a selection of mouth watering meals.
