“It is what it is...pub grub and excellent value for money.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

The Barn, now called Ed's Diner is exactly that, a local no frills restaurant with simple food choices. We had lunch at this restaurant and we chose to sit outside as the large inside dining area felt very empty. I was shocked at the low prices on the menu and when ordering questioned the quality of the food. My 200g rump steak however was cooked exactly how I requested it and at R60 it was dirt cheap. My husband ordered their famous burger which was not disappointing with a homemade patty which was delicious and huge. If you are looking for a relaxed pub type atmosphere with hearty cheap fare this is the place.

“This is now renamed Ed's diner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

Simple food and as the new name suggests, a diner. The owner has an impressive collection of vintage cars on display (and they are for sale). The previous restaurant The Barn was more into gourmet food.
