Grunters has a great family atmosphere and is popular with locals, tourists and international visitors to the Greater Addo area. On a cool night, the wood fire is wonderful and makes it that much more comfortable and welcoming. The owner also manages Grunters. He is welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. The menu has a huge selection, however the house speciality is... More

This was my first time in the area. We stayed over for a night in order to have two whole days in Addo. This was the best choice we could have made for supper with little knowledge of the small town. Amazing burgers.

This was our only option in the little town we stayed in to visit Addo and I was worried we would be bored for 3 nights. But we ended up having great food each time (once we had takeaway). The owners were friendly and fun to chat with. Food was hearty and well priced. Pleasant place.

The atmosphere is great, the staff friendly and attentive and the food quality is what you make of it. We have been there a few times, sometimes we are lucky with the food and it's great, but other times, especially when it is busy the quality starts lacking, all in all a good place to go

This pub is basically the only place to eat. The lager is decent, the wine was ok and the steak was decent. Good value for money, but the service is terrible and owner only bothers with the locals not the tourists!

Grunters being the only place in town does give it a bit of an advantage, however that is not a bad thing. We stayed within walking distance and ate there 2 nights running. It may never feature in any Michelin guide, but don't let that put you off. If steaks are your thing you will be in heaven. The place... More

We were booked in a wonderful guest house near here so didn't have much choice of where to eat. We had read some reviews on this place so thought we would give it a try. For a start, the service was so slow. We were thankful we went early because lots of poeple followed in and must gave been waiting... More

Ate at this pub two nights in a row. The ribs were very good as were the lamb chops. Would have liked a few more vegetable/salad options, but certainly enjoyed the meat. Altogether a pleasant experience.
