Stopped for a quick pancake at Scrumpy Jacks, Food not Bad but staff not pleasant as we were short of chased away becaused they wanted to close at 4 on a Saturday. Then when we left the staff closed the gate in front of us...at the gate and told us to use another gate laughing as they walked away. The other gate was not open and when we went back to the reception we were directed to a third gate. I Suggest that you train your serving staff how to treat your clients. Also erect large notices of your opening and closing times at the roadside/entrance. Please note that I will not be back.More

They do not lie when the say that you'll get the best cheesecake in the Berg at Scrumpy Jacs. But that is not all! It is worth it to go look at the glass beehive and find out more about the bees and the products....All of these available at the shop!More

Poor service, management trying to justify mistakes instead of listening, then simply became rude. Won’t be visiting again.

What a gem. We had a wonderful lunch at Scrumpy Jack's. The mushroom and cheese jaffel, mince jaffel and burgers were a winner! Don't leave without trying the honey cheesecake.

Very quaint farm stall and coffee shop. beautiful view, both indoor and outdoor seating and yummy honey glazed cheesecake. We loved being in this relaxed place and we loved the dogs that came to greet us. The shop has some great pesto, honey and other...local goods. They even had a vegan option on the menu.More

This venue is well worth a visit, and when you do, get the honey-baked cheesecake, it's divine. the glass apiary is also an experience not to be missed.
