A very special place

We love taking visitors to the Hillcrest Berry Orchard. The views are great, the scones are fresh, the jams are delicious. They also cater for people with gluten and sugar intolerance. And then before you go, you can stock up with fresh figs,ripe berries, jams, frozen fruit and lovely gifts.

A great setting for a sunday morning breakfast with good staff and attendance but a very long wait for our food despite there being only 4 tables. Could do with a make over.

A warm welcome, great service and good value for money. The scones, jam and clotted cream will take some beating. It's amazing how many jams there are to chose from. Special touch is the warm scones wrapped up in their special napkin. I loved this place!!

We were told this was a must-see stop to get gorgeous fruits and berries. Seems to be just a cafe as the grounds/farm aren't open for visitors, very hot, no air conditioning and stuffy. Even the berries for sale were just OK, would have been better (and cheaper) to buy some fruit at the supermarket. The gift shop did have... More

Where do I start.. if you like nice decor, don't go. Menu caters for the "Banting" trend (high animal fat diet) but not for Diabetics?? Overpriced, small portions. Chicken was raw. Salad absolutely drenched in oil. Asked for berries with yogurt in stead of cream/ice cream, they wouldn't "because the chef is very particular".. waiter didn't even attempt to try... More
