It appears that most of the damage was limited to the beer garden area. Locals have posted pictures of the fire and the aftermath.

This story has been updated.

A popular watering hole in Green Point went up in flames in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Online video footage shows the beer garden at Fireman's Arms engulfed in flames. Photos posted to social media have captured the subsequent destruction.

It's one of the oldest pubs in Cape Town.

In a Facebook post, the establishment has confirmed that it will be closed on Thursday. They will provide daily updates on their operational status.

Facebook user Dean Ryan posted a video of the fire at about 02:30am.

Several other people have also taken to Twitter to share their eyewitness posts.

CapeTalk is reaching out to the pub’s owner, Kevin Phelan.
