Ann Street, New York City, New Y...
Welcome to The Benders Arms ~ At 97 Fox
Boston Massachusetts had "Cheers", the pub where everybody knows your name, Johannesburg South Africa has "The Benders Arms".
The Benders Arms originally opened its doors in 1948 on the corner of Rissik and Albert Streets where it has operated up to 2017, out surviving all other pubs in the Johannesburg CBD. When the Guild Hall, which opened in 1886, closed its doors in April 2016 the Benders Arms arguably became "the new oldest surviving pub in the Johannesburg CBD". Yes, Kitchener's and The Radium Beer Hall are indeed older but are both situated outside of the Johannesburg CBD.
Unfortunately, the long history of this iconic institution has not been documented but without a doubt anybody who has worked in the Joburg CBD, or placed a bet at the bookies at 3 Loveday Street from the fifties and sixties right through to the noughties would have a story to tell or a memory or two of drinks, a lunch, a party or just a laugh with friends at the Benders Arms.
We relocated to 97 Fox Street in August 2017 at the historical Rand Club, which undoubtedly has its own very rich history and are excited to continue writing a new chapter in the history of The Benders Arms, albeit at 97 Fox Street and in association with the Rand Club.
We will continue to serve a great meal and deliver a good "old" traditional South African pub atmosphere.
Our prego and homemade chips made us famous and are still as good as ever, the rest of the menu especially our steaks served on a skillet, peri-peri chicken and chicken burgers have too become legendary.
Join us for breakfast, lunch, pub lunch (bookings are recommended for groups over ten) or for a drink after work to miss the Joburg traffic.
We are open from 10h00 every day and the kitchen stays open until 17h00 Monday to Thursday, on Fridays we stay open later depending on your needs.
The pub stays open until around 22h00 or until the last customers leave.
Our entire menu is available for takeaway and we will deliver within a reasonable walking distance and if we are not too busy
We do platters and will cater for your next office function, party, or even a private function.
20% discount is offered on food 7 drinks to Rand Club Members, on production of your valid Membership card, at the Benders Arms and in the Members’ Bar in the Club.
Please contact us with your needs.
