The Elephant & Friends brand attracts the fun-loving crowd that enjoys a warm and vibrant pub and grill atmosphere. Established in 2003, our first pub was established by a husband and wife team who are both Pretoria residents, who identified a need in the marketplace for a fresh approach to casual and local entertainment. The idea behind the concept was to create a cosy venue that offers non-stop local entertainment with simple but tasty and fresh food that offers exceptional value for money.

After more than a decade of hard work and passion in polishing our products and service offering, we have been rewarded with a successful business and established, profitable concept, which we are now offering franchise opportunities for in South Africa. The Elephant & Friends pub brand has now become a popular and well-loved venue for a wide ranging and socially diverse set of loyal patrons that enjoy our product and service offering.

These patrons travel from all across Gauteng and Pretoria to our venues, in search of:

  • A casual, open and friendly pub atmosphere;
  • A stimulating and vibrant pub experience;
  • Daily specials and weekly promotions that offer excellent value for money;
  • Great local entertainment, daily, with over 70 musicians and bands on our roster; and
  • Excellent meals, unbelievable portion sizes and a well-equipped sports bar, to name a few.
