Description: Welcome to Ye Olde Tavern, My team and I focus on the very basics of customer service. We reward our customers with a genuine smile, a generous helping of delicious food and a heartfelt thank you when you leave. In a small town like Montagu, the restaurant trade is a very competitive business and I truly believe that part of our success has been due to the support of our local community as well as the consistent recommendations from the B&B’s and Guest Houses. We offer good old fashioned cooking which include tradition South African dishes like Bobotie, Cape Malay Chicken Curry, slow cooked Lamb Shank and Good Olde Fish & Chips. We also have an extensive pizza and children's menu, all at very reasonable prices. We are open 7 nights a week from 6:00pm for dinner and open only for group bookings during lunch time. Reservations strongly recommended.

“Great Malay Curry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

First time here, but was not disappointed. Good food and wine and really helpful staff. The Malay Curry and Pie were really good and it has nice atmosphere.

“Excellent food and great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

We ate here by default as it is one of the few restaurants open in Montague on a Sunday evening, but we were very glad we did. It was, without doubt, the best value meal we had during our whole trip. The steak was excellent and the ribs delicious. Wine's good too. Thoroughly recommended.

Thank you so much for your positive comments and recommendation. We decided a long time ago to be open 7 nights a week as there are far too many restaurants closed on Sunday's. So glad you found us.

“Within walking distance of our accommodation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Decent enough food, not expensive, and conveniently situated for us. We arrived at a busy time, whereby most of the tables had already been booked, and the staff accommodated us well.

“Sonia's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Great place to eat with friendly staff and good quality food. Just across the road from the Mimosa Lodge. Nothing to dislike about this but you do have to book to make certain of a table.
