The meal offered at his venue was wholesome, well prepared and enjoyable. A pity more local content was not on the menu, eg prickly pears, quince and karoo mutton.

This dining room is the closest thing to stepping into a time machine, and being winged back to 1870, or there abouts. Cosiness and atmosphere makes it a very warm and special place...
