Great old time pub with good ribs ( I like more sauce however) and beer. We especially liked chatting it up with the owners. There were both locals and tourists. Definitely recommend for a more local experience. We will be back

Best steak and ribs ever. I've been to 50 countries this the best meat I've ever had. Best owner Priscilla, best barman Tyrone. If you ever visit Knysna, this is the number 1 spot!

Nice staff but the food was no good at all. Both overpriced and bland. Actually, we have had so much better to a much cheaper price during our various travels in South Africa. I still rate it a 2, since the staff was nice and...More

We came back from having dinner, and tried to get a drink at somewhere other than our hotel, but the place almost opposite the Graywood was closing earlyish despite it being New Year's Day. Then we spotted Olde's was still open and went there instead...More
