Get To Know Us

We've been creating special memories and serving mouth-watering meals for over 50 years.

The Spur Story

Since 1967, when the first Spur opened in Cape Town, Spur Steak Ranches have been part of the South African family.

In the years since, Spur has helped to create countless special memories and earned a reputation for tasty, nutritious, value-for-money meals.

We’ve also grown into an internationally recognised brand with many local and international restaurants.

So, what’s our recipe for success? Simple: a warm, relaxed, family-friendly environment; generous portions of great-tasting food; and a hearty helping of quality!

Let’s be honest, awards are always nice. Not because they make us look good, but because they mean we’re getting the way we serve you right. And that’s how we prefer to measure our success.

So, thank you South Africa for giving our warm welcome, mouth-watering food and value-for-money meals two thumbs up!
