Very disappointed. Tried their steak pie a couple of week ago and it was dry and almost inedible. Today tried their lasagna and it was truly inedible. It’s a a great pity as it is such a good stop over.

Hot summers Friday at 16:30 we popped in for a cold drink on our way to Cape Town. All cold drinks were just restocked an hot. Only the cokes were cold. Was such a disappointment. Why wait till it is busy to restock on drinks? As a local, won't be visiting soon again.

Very disappointed, their service was good but the pies itself was definitely below par. Instead of a flaky and light puff pastry it was more like semi baked bread dough. Super thick and not crispy at all. Before you guys expanded into the large retail stores it was much nicer but after our visit to the original farmstall now we would rather go to Perigreens in the future.

Saturday 30th September we took very special long time friends from the UK to "the famous Houhoek restaurant" for a meal hoping to introduce them to your great pies. We were a table of of 8. Those that ordered pies and chips were extremely disappointed as the pies hardly had any filling in them, pastry very thick and the meat was dry and not to mention the 7 chips my partner had on his plate....
I know times are getting tough but his response was "I've had better pies from a filling station...." We were extremely disappointed so I'm not sure if it's just from the restaurant side that the pies weren't great or as a whole. The others had scones cream and jam and seemed ok.
Next time we go for pie we'll go to Perigreens.

We had a casual lunch. The food was wonderful and service good. Prices of all courses and the wine is most reasonable. We had a wheelchair bound person with us and the staff went out of there way to assist in rearranging tables and helping lifting the chair down some stairs after we left via the front door and not down the wheelchair ramp. Very impressed

Visit every year on my annual visit to South Africa. Excellent value and worth a visit.

The number of people visiting on a rainy days, says a lot about the products

Location is perfect as a pit stop. Surrounded by mountains and nature. Extremely clean. The shop is filled with delights and everything displayed beautifully. Our lunch was absolutely delicious and the menu is interesting. Our waitresses were very efficient and friendly.

Friends popped up from cape town and got us pies from Houw Hoek I was glad as I have not been down that end for three years and always stopped for pies. Well what a disappointment not at all like I remember it , dry meat no gravy but the worst was the pastry thick and like a ball of dough dont know if it is new owners but their quality department must have closed down wont buy there again.

There is a great variety of foods on offer to buy and take home, with made it very difficult to choose what to buy!
The prices are very reasonable and the staff very helpful. We sat down for a cup of tea and a scone, and the scone was huge, so big that I could only eat half! The strawberry jam served with it was really nice too!

Lovely farmstall with a variety of options both in preserves and other items you can takeaway for use at home, as well as various beverages and snacks.

They sell delicious pies as well as have a restaurant as well.

They have a pretty little Ginger cat that might bless you with it's presence
I was lucky enough to have it be a loaf near me while I tried out one of their fresh made pies.
