“I would give this a hat rating for the food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

The food is simply outstanding ... we went with a group for dinner after not having been for many years now.. the new owners have stepped up another level to what already was a fine place to dine with a fabulous outlook over the escarpment and valley. The setting is so tranquil and the atmosphere matches... outdone only by the friendliness and professionalism of the staff and the simply mouthwatering and presented dishes on offer at our table.. the meals all came out as one and where simply scrumptious. Thanks and best wishes for successful trading you deserve it! Thanks see you soon..

“Fantastic coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Coffee and scones with jam and cream. Simple but hard to do well; but they do it very well! And the views of the surrounding country side are so relaxing.

“beautiful food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

We used to frequent here many times and food was good. Visited after new owners took over and the food was fantastic and despite being full service was a lot quicker than it used to be. I had grilled fish and rice pilaff with Bisque sauce. Fish was a tad over salty but was so yummy. After school holidays finish we'll be back and i hope the fish is still there :) I love the outlook and on sunny days the kids can run outside - though i do love just when hubby and i go there.

The food here is incredibly reasonably priced, and tastes fantastic! Also loved looking out over the countryside - cows included :). What a lovely lovely place with fabulous food.

“Stunning views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

A friend and I went to Bowers on a Sunday morning. I'm not sure if the breakfast buffet was only for Mothers Day or if it's a usual Sunday thing, but if so I highly recommend it. The bacon, scrambled eggs and thick toast were great, and so filling I didn't eat for the rest of the day. It was so nice sitting by the window, with the sun on my back, gazing at the rolling fields and display of autumn leaves, while eating breakfast and sipping a cappuccino. The service was friendly and the views stunning.
