The Barking Spider

No-one says it better than these old and well known lyrics:

“It’s 9′o clock on a Saturday. The regular crowd shuffles in. The old man sitting next to me is making love to his tonic and gin.”

In Port Elizabeth, the Barking Spider Pub and Grub always reminds me of this song – the regulars, the cold beer, great times and good food.

I have always been fascinated by bars and pubs and the regulars that visit them, with their wealth of interesting tales, life stories and fascinating characters.

The Barking Spider is situated at the Greenbushes Hotel on The Old Cape Road. Step inside and you will find a traditional Pub and Grub experience.
