After a while not visiting Stanford, we managed to get a booking at Havercrofts and it came as no surprise we were treated to the most delicious meal again. Brydon, you are truly a Chef of note and Innes, delightful as always. What a pleasure.

Had the pleasure of celebrating my recent birthday at the ever wonderful Havercrofts. Innes and Brydon have created a truly special restaurant which is by far my favorite in the Overberg. That Kerelan Fish Curry makes my mouth water just thinking about it. Thanks for...More

My sister recommended Havercrofts as a must do in Stanford and I can see why it is her favourite restaurant out of all the wonderful options available. The food is out of this world and I can highly recommend that you plan for 3 courses....More
