Found this brewery in the obscure industrial area, but this works a charm. Lovely environment for families and the beer tasting is very well structured. We had the steak burger and this wasn't the tastiest, but the chips were great. Good menu, but we would advise sitting inside in future - too many flies that ended up in our wine... More

Blown away....Darling Brewery offers great food and just as great beer. The portion sizes of their food are generous. The venue is perfect, overlooking the Kegs in the Brewery.

What an excellent range of beers to taste to satisfy any beer connoisseurs palate. If you love good Indian Pale Ale then this is the place to try it out. Only problem is that the beers come without identifying labels on the glasses so remembering what you have in a big group can get confusing. Awesome chips available as well... More

I agree this is a unique concept and the venue is great. However, the service will have to be improved for a long term great experience. We ordered 2 cheese burgers (at 11h15). We were then told that the "buns" were still on route from Ysterfontein (and they were open for breakfast??). So we ordered spring rolls so long. About... More
