Yesterday we tried their spinach and feta quiche which was delicious. It is served with an array of salads and freshly cooked chips. Despite the restaurant being big and busy the service is quick...

Great spot to stop for tea and snacks along Route 62. Great scones. Cappuccino was disappointing though as it was weak. Tasty biltong available from shop plus lots of curios.

Was working in the small town for a day. Decided to have lunch there, it was awesome. They have huge portions real value for money and I had their great lamb curry...could not finish it had to take some home. This place really worth the visit.

We live in a nearby town (50 km away) and decided to drive to Barrydale for lunch. We stopped at the Country Pumpkin restaurant on the famous Route 62, and were not disappointed. We were seated promptly at an outside area, which was well-shaded (air temp was warm 32C). The waitress was friendly, and brought menus, then took our drinks... More
