OK this is a brewery so don't come here expecting a modern restaurant type building. If you do, you're in for a shock. There is a sort of permanent tent-like structure housing a collection of tables and benches and, most important of all, the bar. We visited on a Saturday so there was also entertainment laid on. We opted for... More

This was a very enjoyable stop along the Garden Route. We got there before lunch, tasted the beers & went on the tour with our exceptionally well-informed guide. I'd recommend tasting the beers first, as it made the tour more interesting! We also had lunch after the tour; they do very good sandwiches & wraps. The bar area is nice... More

This place is fantastic. The bar platter for R145 is THE best platter you'll ever order. The beer is great, we liked the 50/50 and the Foresters. Great view too. Really worth the visit.

We had a lovely afternoon at Mitchell’s. No torus were available but we managed to have a few beers, some beer tasting and good pub food. Portions are big so share. Great place to go have a beer and watch the rugby.

We take a group of 20 volunteers every year on a tour. the disappointment with Mitchell's Brewery got every year worse. The first year we booked beer tasting for our group, when we arrived the brewery was closed. The second year we tried it again to give them another chance and we booked again, this time they forgot the booking.... More

Went to the brewery as the weather was not good. Enjoyed the short tour and our guide was very knowledgeable. Sampled the beers afterwards and they weren't to our taste.

This brewery, under new management has an amazing atmosphere. A wide variety of craft beers available for cheap tastings. The bar menu is diverse and really good quality for money! Perfect for watching the rugby or having a few drinks with friends! Live music and local staff. Kitchen closes later than what Google suggests!

We wanted to take the tour and do the tasting on a Saturday during the Oyster Festival and phoned ahead to find out what was on offer. We were told that there was an event there that morning and no tours on offer but that we could come after 1pm for a tasting. Not a problem, we turned up at... More
