Awesome lunch and reasonably priced. Wine is really good and service exceptional. Ideal for children as it has a really nice play area.

Lunch with friends in a beautiful setting. The food was very good. Service was good and frienly maybe a bit slow but the food made up for that. As a desert try someting with icecream - the best vanilla I have had in South Africa! Also visit the manor house and library - 300 years of history!

We showed up with out a reservation for lunch and although we hadn't booked they where able to find us a seat. The staff was polite but not overly friendly. The food was well prepared and we enjoyed the views of the fountain and well maintained gardens...
