“Unique experience, service can be improved”
Reviewed 2 April 2017

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 10 minutes later we received our meals. We were a bit surprised. Then we discovered that we were served somebody else's food - steak burgers. We acted graciously not wanting to make a scene. We were never offered an apology or an explanation. Not good enough.

“Brew away Darling!”
Reviewed 16 March 2017

This is a must visit destination if you happen to find yourself in the Western Cape Town of Darling....you can have a beer taster - 3,4 or 5 different samples - or just dive straight into your favourite....this is an award winning microbrewery since 2010 and the emphasis is on slow brewing techniques....with names like bone crusher, thunder bird, dessert dragon and rogue pony you really can find the style and strength of beer that suits you...there is also a restaurant overlooking the state of the art SHINY purpose built brewery....the cheese and meat platter for two made for a lovely lunch...really fun place to visit....

“Beer for the beer lover”
Reviewed 7 March 2017

Here is a chance for beer lovers to taste some interesting beers and after tasting a few remembering which one was the one you liked most.
We took a friend from the UK here and had a great time. The tasting was good and we each had a burger which was delicious.
The service was not that great as it was quite busy, but we were happy to stay a little longer to quench our thirst.
We sat inside as it was a really hot day and would advise that you book a table over the weekends as its quite a popular venue.
