Bought the best smoked trout sandwiches I've ever tasted on really scrumptious brown bread. Finger-lickin' good!

On the way to Kruger National Park we stopped here for a refresh. I spied their trout pies and we had a few, very delicous and really more-ish! Bit expensive for a small pie but I guess worth it for a fresh delicious trout pie.

We stopped here both on our way to and from Kruger Park. It is clean and does nice tasty take away food and drink. Very peaceful setting. Rest rooms are good and clean but could do with updating.

A very nice spot to take a comfort break when going on the N 4. Fill your car at the friendly station. Clean restrooms. Shopping for the "that was left " home and wondering around. Enjoy trout from the area, served, take away or frozen.

From the time I sat down the experience was unpleasant. Ants on the table and you wait. Drinks order takes forever then you complain and your drink appears, then your food appears then you get no service. I would have loved a second drink but eventually I just paid and left. The food was amazing, their specially made beef patties... More
