Lovely food and the chef made changes to cater for us being fussy over the vegetables. Great size portions!

What a lovely experience. High tea and a game of croquet in this lovely old world charm home and adjoining gardens. We were served a tasty selection of savoury and sweet treats. A table was set for us on the veranda and we were then left to leisurely serve ourselves and enjoy the afternoon. The garden was frequented by numerous... More

As I found this place on tripadvisor, I took my husband for anniversary dinner there. We stopped by their closed gate and they wouldn't even open, the woman on intercom said we can't come in without a booking. So we gave a call and there were free tables..! What a stupid way to treat people. Maybe good enough for locals,... More

If your looking for a quality meal, shared with a loved one accompanied by candlelights and classy wine, I highly recommend visiting Hacklewood!! The line fish was exceptional on my last visit and the desserts are always a win. A visit to the under ground wine cellar to select your evenings "treats" is a must. And if you find yourself...

Was invited by Nedbank to a wine pairing dinner, 4 course meal and every dish was fantastic. The food was alive with flavours and presentation was out of this world. Dessert was a crumbed Brie like I've never tasted before. Would highly recommend this Resturant.

Attended a wedding here, the food was of an excellent standard and fantastic quality. Service was well executed and the place definitely has a vintage yet stylish ambience.

Based on reviews I had read and awards won by the restaurant I was expecting a truly fine dining experience. The ambiance is one of a stately old house and has a good feel however when my main dish arrived I was disappointed to find my food luke warm as well as my greens being unwashed and full of grit....

We went here based on the excellent reviews and they were not wrong. Service was magical here, appearing just exactly as they were needed and invisible otherwise. We recommend going with the tasting menu which includes a paired wine with each menu item. The lamb and beef were cooked perfectly, the side vegetables were also great. The risotto with the... More
