Booking process was v efficient and setting is lovely with a singer provided. Bread is homemade and delicious. However that’s all the good we experienced. Chicken livers to start were a tiny portion ( like 2 livers) we asked for more and they did oblige. Melenzane was under cooked as was the oxtail. The lamb shank was not great at all and cooked with bisto gravy powder and I expected way more for R205..
other 2 meals pork belly and curry were ok-ish but all parties said they would not return. Service was also very slow and waiters were non existent.
How this is best restaurant in magaliesburg I’m not sure.

Beautiful setting and tasty food.

However, the service was lacking to say the least (our waiter forgot to bring drinks we had ordered, did not bring milk with tea, we constantly had to look for our waiter, ask other waiting staff for assistance).

The Ou Pastorie advertises gluten free options, the menu does have some options - but these seem to be there more by chance than specific planning - which I found to be disappointing as I cannot eat gluten for medical reasons.

When my mother booked, she mentioned it was her birthday - but there was no special effort made (no one wished her).

At no point did a manager/maitre d' come to ask us if everything was satisfactory, as one would consider standard at a highly rated establishment.

Lastly, while in the loo I heard the barman complain to a waiter "come get your drinks off my bar, they've been there so long the ice is melting". So it seems the slow service was felt by your staff members too.

Stopped by for a late breakfast and were wonderfully accommodated . Nothing was too much trouble including serving breakfast even thought it was past time .

The venue is perfect for both indoor and outdoor seating,

I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a lovely stop to eat and relax in the area

Excellent setting and food. Quality of the food is very good and the staff are friendly. You cannot go wrong here for breakfast. But make sure to stop early. seating is limited and with live music most Sunday afternoons reservations are few.

Lovely setting under the trees. Gentle live entertainment. Waiters very friendly and well trained. Food was excellent. This will now be one of the spots we will frequent regularly.
