We enjoyed something light to eat and we were pleasantly surprised. The Special of the Day was Chicken Pie with mash and stir fried vegetables which my husband really enjoyed.

Or to sit and watch the world go by in one of the original sleepy little towns. Food was good, service was good and they were very accommodating to our needs with a small baby.

...But service was slow! Delicious food and cooling misters were a welcome relief from the heat! Seems a popular place, which explains the slow service

The best scones and croissants , was so delicious we ordered sconds. This quaint Victorian style hotel has a cute restaurant serving great breakfast. The place was very busy with lots of holiday makers.

Just lovely! Like sitting on the stoep, visiting and not just eating out.. Coffees of good quality and food is njam! Karoo boerewors and home made relish is really good. Fruit platter also nice. Not just chopped apples and yogurt.. Menu not limited to only a few dishes, caters for a wide variety.

Lovely to sit here on the deck on a good day & watch the passing parade while sipping a glass of wine or coffee. The menu is exciting & quite broad . We chose to have a Spicy Chicken salad which was most generous and very tasty. I couldn't finish mine. The service was excellent & its obviously very popular... More
