It was cold and there was no electricity in town due to loadshedding so I didn't want to walk far for supper. This restaurant was right next door to my guesthouse and was a delight.

My wife and I dropped in for supper. Had a really excellent mushroom soup and a great pasta (carbonara and bolognese). Great atmosphere with lots of local people. Good, friendly service with fun staff. Recommend it above many other restaurants and should be a must "go to" for Swellendam visitors. The locals know where to go - and great value!

Stayed in Swellendam for a few days and went to Woodpeckers twice. Great pizza and brilliant meatballs. Highly recommended.

We had very good pizza here and good service even if the owner was rather patronising. We're a pizza loving family and are often disappointed with pizza when we go out but not this time! Love the way in SA avocado on a pizza is a common thing, yum!

Visited the Woodpecker for lunch. Excellent setting, neat and well-presented . The Blue Cheese Burger was a real winner. Highly recommended.

Brilliant pizza and good value for money. Excellent service. They are also extremely flexible and can do any pizzas half half at no extra charge. Try the Sloppy Joe with chilli, Fantastic!
