“Phew what a scorcher!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

Sunday lunch at Moggs - 35 degrees!
Based up in the mountains at Hemel en Arde, there is some off road driving!!
Go early and make sure you book to get an outside table.
Food was exquisite and staff very friendly and helpful. Now licensed.

“Delectable food in a charming location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

The CookHouse is most original. The interior pretty and decorated and the outdoor tables under the verandah overlook the lovely gardens. There is a wonderful choice of unusual and appetising combinations. I chose the grilled calamari salad followed by beef fillet. Unfortunately i can't remember the accompaniments now save to say that they were really delicious. Its a must if you like to lunch in rural retreats. The service is delightful. A very personal family run place who take pride in their menu. Reservation essential. Closed Mondays and Tuesdays.

A bit far to travel but once there you are in another world. South African country! Big trees, relaxed atmosphere, beautiful! Will go there again, and again. Delicious food!
