The food was good and very quick service. It’s right on the main road so made it an easy place to stop for lunch as we drove through Barrydale. Quite on the expensive side for a quick lunch though.

The environment was cosy with great fireplaces but the interior needs a face lift. Coffee marks and salt still on the table from the previous customers and the table itself is a little bit small. The beef burger on roosterkoek is great and a very...generous portion. The meat was good quality but a little overcooked and needs a good basting. The roosterkoek and fried pumpkin could be cooked a little longer but all in all very satisfying.More

Peaceful setting under the grape vines with rustic ambiance. Two musicians playing in the background. Now, let us hope the food is as good as the setting.... and yes it indeed was. Service was good too.

Good food and service. Locals are super friendly and strike up a conversation with you as if you have been friends for years. So refreshing to see people take time to relax and enjoy life.

To be honest, the only reason we stopped here on Xmas Eve was because Diesel & Creme was already closed. We sat outside, and with my allergies, there really wasn't all that much I could eat or wanted to eat other than a chicken mayo...sandwich. They were out of stock of many of their menu items, but then it was no doubt due to the season and the fact that we pulled in near closing at the busiest time of the year. My meal was all right. Nothing to trumpet from the highest heavens, but I did appreciate that the serving staff were so kind to our doggos, who were very thirsty – so recommended to dog owners who want to stop for a quick bite while travelling.More

We got to Barrydale after 8pm on a Friday and with few spots open came here - food & vibe was great. Live music and friendly staff.

I'm a local in Barrydale but live and work overseas for most of the year. I am never disappointed at the main breakfast on offer at the Country Pumpkin restaurant. I have to say, that having had breakfasts in all the local eateries, I find...that the Country Pumpkin is the most delicious, versatile and value for money in any eatery on the R62. For R89, you get 2 eggs, 2 pieces of bacon, 1 boerewors sausage, a grilled tomato, savoury mince, grilled mushrooms, 2 slices of toast with butter and jam, serving of chips and not to forget the signature pumpkin fritter. The staff are always friendly and ready to accommodate without hovering too much. The views of the mountains opposite are uninterrupted and breathtakingly beautiful. Sunshine, views and excellent food, what more could one ask for.More
