Busy Saturday afternoon, waited a long time to be served and even longer to get our drinks order. Tables outside were wet and only cleaned at customers request.

After spending a week in Clarens I have decided, this is the best restaurant/bar by far! I would go back anytime, for a quick snack, beer with a friend, date with my wife or even just to sit, relax and enjoy the tips of the mountains peeping at you through the trees.

The brewery is a great place to sit and relax while enjoying some of the best craft beer around. The service & food was also excellent. Had to stop when we were leaving Clarens to pick up a couple of cases to enjoy at home.

This is the ideal escape after being engaged in the village square shopping scrum. It has atmosphere, interesting food and great beer. Definitely recommended!
