Initially, from outside, the place did not look very impressive - plastic chairs and tables. But when you enter through those doors, you entered another world! Each section of the restaurant created a different vibe and atmosphere, and you can pick the one that suits...you best depending on your own mood. The menu is extensive, and the food was prepared excellently and stylishly - from pizza to medium rare fillet with red wine juz. Wow!More

We had lunch at The Coachman during our stay in Dullstroom. The staff was very friendly, they tried to give us an outdoor table which ended up being a little out of the way but still good. One of the other waiters then gave our...food to his / her table by accident and we had to wait a really long time for our food as we ordered oxtail. Our waiter kept asking if we want to drink something while we wait, but I feel that it was their mistake and they could have at least then made up for it by giving us something to drink on the house maybe? I can say that when the food finally came, it was very good. We did enjoy it greatly.More

We were the only people in the restaurant - we traveled in the week and off season. The food was still excellent, service was great and the venue was very cosy and ambience good. Very well priced.

We recently visited Dullstroom and decided on The Coachman for dinner. The atmosphere was great with a father / daughter band singing some of the greats. We had a lovely table for 2 in a good position to see the live music which is always...good. With that said. The service was unfortunately not the best. We booked a table in advance yet no one actually knew where we were sitting. (I actually chose my own table) We waited a extreme long time for our first drinks and that was not even with starters ordered. Our starters were delicious. (Snails) Out main meal on the other hand was subpar to say the least. We ordered rump and the oxtail. The rump was done to liking however the baked potato was extremely dry, even after the sour cream was eventually delivered. The oxtail was absolutely not on standard. Ot was extremely tough and a real effort to get off the bone.More

This was a busy night with reservations of a lot of tables so we initially waited a bit for a table but were accommodated by the staff by making space for us. Tables still socially distanced. The food was tasty and portions are large. There...was live music which we thoroughly enjoyed. We will be back.More

It's now been an two hours. We're still waiting for our food. We made a reservation on Tuesday and when we arrived we were stuffed in a corner after having to wait for 10 minutes to be seated. They forgot about our reservation. Two of...our friends are sharing a corner and God Knows how they will eat tonight with that little of table to share between them. I'm really disappointed in the service and everytime I ask the waiter where the food is she walks away ignoring my question. The worse of it all is. My friend wanted to propose, I SPECIFICALLY asked to be seated by the live music. Now we're stuck between drunk screaming rugby fans, crammed in a cornerMore

I unfortunately had Plastic in my meal, that the management have taken as a joke, trying to say it is bacon fat. How bacon fat and plastic can be confused is another story! We were the only people in the restaurant at the time, And...still had to search for a waiter. Much better restaurants in Dullstroom, don't waste your time hereMore
