Our family are regulars at Mark’s The Hound and enjoy every visit. Friday night was very special, though. Valiant Swart’s performance was an inspiration. The food here is always good: hearty country fare with a pinch of sophistication. Service is friendly. Go try it already!

Excellent food! Accommodating staff! Dog-friendly! The proprietor, Mark, is what really makes this place special. He pours his heart and soul into the place. The food is exceptional. Pizza's are excellent for takeaway. The resident hound makes it feel like home.

Fairly unassuming from the outside, this place was a lovely surprise Stop here for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Chances are you won't be disappointed. I had the omelette for breakfast - a tasty and substantial meal.

Been there twice now and my wife and I have had the seafood platter, lamb curry, rump steak and pork belly. All excellent, I particularly enjoyed with the snail soup, done in a different way and very tender. You won't go wrong.
