Having been here quite a few times I can positively say the food is always tasty and is the perfect “pub grub” that makes you feel welcome in a small town. The staff are incredibly friendly and very helpful. It’s not fine dining but a...More

This place needs a menu and decor overhaul and guidance in creating ambience. It was cold outside so we chose to sit inside - dark, murky and cold despite the fire. Staff were pleasant. Very typical, old style South African menu. Food service was fast...More

This place has gone through a few changes since I started going there 20 years ago. All good, just disappointed that the trout pancake that made them famous (in our family book) is not the same anymore. Other than that, definitely worth the visit.

Very dissapointing! Gone are the good old days! Tasteless food. Rude waitress. The Vetkoek and mince used to be a the perfect lunch. Now it is little more than a piece of oil soaked bread with tasteless mine.

This used to be an awesome place. The old-timey newspaper menu's - gone. The stunningly plated trout breakfast - gone. Breakfast replaced with roadside truckstop food. The atmosphere - gone. New owners completely ruined what was once a stunning landmark with exceptional food.
