We ordered, nothing came. Eventually after thirty minutes two burgers appeared but none of the four other salads. Why one earth couldn't they have been prepared at the same time as the burgers??? Eventually, after forty minutes, one by one, the salads slowly appeared, the last one forty five minutes after we ordered. Spoke to the owner, who turned abusive... More

Just stopped for drinks outside but had great service and we're sorry we couldn't hang around for a bite as the menu looked interesting. Very local, the personification of a pub with tv's offering the latest soccer match. Very reasonable. A nice stop off during a tour and shopping in wonderful Stellenbosch.

We have eaten there before and it was very good. This visit was disappointing. They had no spare ribs despite the fact that we got there at 18h00 on a Friday evening. The cup of coffee that I had was quite easily the worst ever.

The atmosphere and service from waiters and staff are really excellent. The chaps at the bar was very friendly and professional. The food was not good at all. I have had supper here before and the hamburgers were excellent. Sorry to say but the chicken strips, pizza and nachos was nasty!!

Wonderful place to celebrate my wife's birthday with our family! My five daughters arranged a special surprise with the staff, they were so accommodating. We had great burgers and pizza. Looking forward to going back. A little gem in Stellenbosch.

We needed food on a cold spring afternoon and this was a great solution - friendly staff, a log fire burning and good food. One of us had pizza from the wood burning oven and the other chicken sosatie (kebab). Nothing fancy, but tasty and good.
