Traditionally laid out decor and, of course, Sue (the owner). What a darling...the hostess with the mostess! The only thing I never did was try the meals there but from what was being served,...

Greeted by a door with the classical "Narnia" written on it - and its a well suited name in every sense as you step into a hidden away beer garden as soon as you step through the... More

We had dinner here on a friday evening. We sat outside in the beer garden. Ambience us great. Pathways leading up to tables so it is quite private. Food service however was not good. We ordered - then had to show the waiter on the menu what we wanted, then his supervisor came to check and still it was wrong.... More

Was a few weeks ago in this place and had the superb "boerewors", since my family just arrived wanted to threat them on this.

I visited this club on Thursday night.......Club is small but was almost full and with decent crowd.........But it closed around 11:00 PM only which is a little bit strange....May be possible, I chose on a wrong day to visit the place...........but if u are looking for class and decent crowd............then this place is for you.......
