We didn't want to eat in a fast-food and stopped at Dees for a drink. We were pleased to discover that there was a restaurant attached at the bar. The steaks were delicious, cooked like we asked. The wine card is small but with good quality wines.

I went to visit this restaurant on the recommendation of a friend and it was very good. I didnt expect much because it was a pub but it went beyond my expectations. the rib and prawn was fantastic. people should try this when they visit Vryheid.

Not great on decor with dim lighting inside but does a really perfectly cooked rump steak. Service was good and I didn't have to wait.

We enjoyed our time at Dee's very much. We stayed in the Shonalanga guest house across the road and wanted to watch the rugby and have supper. We had a lovely meal with huge portions and good quality.The service was very friendly. The only negative is that they should upgrade the TV's in the smokers section of the bar.

We'd meant to stop somewhere else in Vryheid for lunch but it was closed. Thankfully Dee's was open. We were there with two small children and grandparents and 50 or so bikers, but the service was outstanding, really friendly and helpful, and the toasted sandwiches were good. Not an exciting menu but good value and above all, great service from... More

The bar and tables near it can be a bit noisy but the large covered deck has plenty of tables. The menu concentrates on steak and this is what I would recommend. M-L had fillet and felt that a knife was hardly required and I had rump, also extremely tender. One tip, if you ask for "rare" they take you... More

Not the most exciting choices on the menu but still a good selection of meat, fish and veg dishes - at a very reasonable price.

Dee's is a small town bar and steak house - the local hang out for businessmen, farmers and local coal mine management. The food is surprisingly good - hearty, solid stuff; steaks, salads, sides of vegetables etc. Service can be a little slow. Would happily recommend it to B&B guests passing through Vryheid.
