Another memorable lunch at one of our very favourite Cape country venues, with superb food from Brydon and the unique humour and hospitality from Innes in the front. Seemingly rustic and simple, until you 'get it' as thankfully we did a long time ago. A blackboard of delicious variety, each starter main and dessert a winner. A glorious day, a... More

Hubby took me to Havercrofts for my birthday and I Must really say this is the best food in the Hermanus area by a mile! The front of house (chefs wife) makes one feel right at home. The most amazing is is that all the patrons in the restaurant recommend all the food and everyone knows everyone. I can definitely... More

We enjoyed a lovely lunch and really fun afternoon, over a few glasses of wine, with Innes and Brydon. The flourless chocolate cake is incredible and highly recommended. We will definitely be back.

Yet again, thoroughly impressed with the stunning food at Havercrofts. This is the third time I've eaten there and they always hit the spot in terms of delivering great food and fabulous service. Brydon cooks up a mean meal and Innes is always entertaining. If you're planning a trip to Stanford, then make sure you book a table or you'll... More

A most enjoyable Sunday lunch in a small and intimate "cottage and garden" venue. The ambiance was great with a lively buzz. Hostess, Innes, was full of fun and attentive, but maybe a bit boisterous at times. The Roast Beef was done to perfection and the Chicken dish beautifully presented oozing with flavour. The only gripe is the price of... More

Our visit to Havercrofts for Sunday lunch was one of the highlights of our recent trip to the Overberg region. We will definitely not be passing through the area again without stopping by! Our starters - gruyere souffle and devilled kidneys - were a treat in themselves, and were followed by a hearty main course of traditional roast beef and... More

What an experience ! Wonderful food and service. Bryden's flourless chocolate cake is out of this world. We will definitely be back for more.

A wonderful, long, lazy lunch with Innes and Bryden. The chalkboard menu, based on what is actually seasonally available is all just too tempting. The walnut and cranberry bread to snack on, was a treat in itself. The pork belly with a huge portion of extra crispy crackling was delicious. Surrounded by farmland, including a "hans-lammetjie", it is a treat,... More

This restaurant is a complete hidden treasure! The exuberance and passion of the food from the chef, Bryden is followed through to the character of the hostess, Innes. The appreciation of the service and food of this dynamic duo is reflected in it's strong community of followers and fans (this is a MUST BOOK and HAVE TO BOOK destination!) and... More
