Gastropubs have long been the places to go in Britain, but this approach has hit South Africa with a bang, and is undergoing a constant evolution. This concept is centred on pubs that specialise in craft beers, local wines and international favourites, paired with top-notch food. The Steamworks Gastropub is a pioneer in this field, and its locations (in Lone Hill, Johannesburg) puts it in prime position to stimulate the eating and drinking taste buds of local diners and tourists aplenty.

The Steamworks is described as a steampunk gastropub; with quirky décor, eclectic furniture, modern twists and the absolute tastiest food and drinks. It was established by the same childhood friends (Martin Jakoby and Thomas Hughes) that started The Loft in Melville, The Attic in Parkhurst, and The Office in Greenside. These two gents have a penchant for the very best in craft beers, irresistible food and good service.

The Steamworks is a casual hangout with a varied menu. Some of the favourite menu items include pork and black bean spring rolls with Korean slaw and a soy dressing, mussels in cider and crème fraiche, a salmon fishcake with a soft poached egg, free-range rump steak with a Béarnaise sauce, poached kabeljou in a spiced coconut milk, and a lightly crumbed porcini ravioli with baby spinach and salsa verde. There are also a host of vegetarian options, salads, pizzas and a gourmet burger. On weekends, there is a small kiddies’ menu available too.

There are 10 local and imported beers on tap at The Steamworks Gastropub. These include delicious labels like Aces Bare Naked Blonde, Celis White, Brewhogs Original Red Lager, Lindemands Kriek, Mad Giant Punk Hop American Pale Ale, Soweto Gold Apple Ale, and Gogo’s Ginger Beer. Beer tastings comprise a tray of four of the on-tap beers, which can be sampled and savoured before ordering which you would like to sip on with friends.

The Steamworks Gastropub is a must for food-lovers visiting Gauteng, South Africa.
