Restaurant of the Week: Friar Tuck

One of Robin Hood's Merry Men, the jovial Friar Tuck, believed to have had a great love of good food and ale, would not have been able to resist the slow-cooked oxtail topped with carrots and peas and served on a bed of rice.

WHEN you step into Friar Tuck Restaurant, you become immersed in medieval English folklore while enjoying deliciously prepared food and personalised service fit for a king or queen.

This award-winning steakhouse, in the heart of Margate, offers steaks, slow-cooked oxtail, traditional lamb curry, arguably the best spare ribs in town and wholesome homemade burgers.

Seafood lovers can choose from a wide selection of crayfish, prawns, calamari and platters, while vegetarians can enjoy an extensive variety of salads, vegetable platters and bakes.


There is an array of starters, such as field mushrooms prepared in port and garlic, studded with prawns, shrimps and parsley, then covered with a creamy white sauce and sprinkled with bread crumbs before being grilled.

This family-orientated eatery has a special ‘kiddies’ corner’ and a ‘little eaters’ menu which includes burgers, hot dogs, chicken nuggets and riblets.

There is something for everyone at this well-established restaurant. Be sure not to miss the three-course lunch on Sundays at just R85 per person. Available out of season only. To book, call 039 3121084.

Open seven days a week, from 5pm till late on weekdays and noon till late on Saturdays and Sundays.
