Menu changes slightly on a weekly basis. We went back for more! Service is quick, friendly and efficient. Lovely view and relaxed atmosphere. Food is of very high quality for very reasonable prices. Some interesting flavours and hearty desserts. Definitely try their blueberry cheesecake and...blueberry drinks. We will be back! Make a reservation, especially if you want to sit outside. Also dog friendly, always a big plus!More

Lovely, quaint setting and venue with a unexpected interesting menu and the food lived up to the expectation and was well presented - deserving of its no 1 spot on Tripadvisor

If you are looking for a place to have a meal on a beautiful day, Whether its with the whole family, as a couple or with friends - i definatly recommend this place. The views are amazing, the food portions are generous, the staff is...lovely and it is so clean. The bonus is, their menu changes every week, they have cycling trails in the property and after a meal you can take a little stroll before hitting the road again.More

We had a lovely lunch under a flowering crab-apple tree, and the atmosphere was lovely. Our starter comprised creamy tomato spread on farm bread for my wife, and sticky chicken wings for me. I appreciated the fact that they weren’t too sweet. My wife’s main...course was the chicken schnitzel with potato and salad, which was amazing, a big portion with great flavour. My main course was the pulled pork and mustard pie with mushy peas, which I thoroughly enjoyed. We finished with the baked pear and caramel sauce, a real treat! Definitely worth visiting, especially in September when the azaleas are in full bloom. The owner made us feel welcome and we promised to return.More

Ate here several times during our trip to Tzaneen. Every meal was excellent. Particularly recommend the breakfasts. Big, healthy, and delicious. Avocado.... the Blueberry Heights Farm supplies Waitrose (up market store in the UK) with avocado. So there are lots on the menu in season....Revelation is, how much tastier they are fresh picked. Look for a smallish sign on the side of the road, fixed to a farm entrance. Follow the dirt track through the blueberry plantation. Nice space with big log fire inside in winter. Nice shaded areas outside in summer. Smashed avo on toast with scrambled eggs, bacon, tomatoes and lettuce is a must.More

Even on a cold day the blueberry cheesecake is a must! Would have loved to try other meals on the menu but the kitchen closed already...definitely next time👌

The menu gets changed every week so it is difficult to say what exactly will be on offer I can say it will not disappoint and regarding the wine we are not wine drinkers per se but they had quite a variety to choose from
