“LOVE IT!”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

Visiting Stanford we researched the local restaurants and were pleased to see that there were a number of recommended eateries to choose from. Fortunately our hopes and expectations were met by the gregarious Innes and Brydon who served us an excellent meal. We loved the setting under the vines overlooking the valley and the mountains. The tomato tart was fabulous and my sirloin was cooked to perfection. We will be back!!!

“Twice excellent!”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

We've been twice to Havercroft's - after the first time we couldn't stop telling friends that it was the best meal we'd had that we could remember. A small but perfectly formed menu. Lovely little cottage, vine covered terrace, personal attention from the owners - such fun! Innes and Brydon have made a little piece of paradise available to all.

“Perfection on a plate”
Reviewed April 2, 2014 via mobile

What a fantastic restaurant. Rarely does a restaurant live up to the reviews but Havercrofts delivers in trumps. From the moment we were greeted by wonderful and gregarious Innes we relaxed into a world of culinary bliss created by the creative dexterity of Brydon.
The deviled kidneys were worth selling your soul for and my dining companions cheese souffle was devoured with gusto. Mains of fish curry, chicken breast and steak all prepared in a way which knocks anything close out of the park. Homemade fudge icecream was the perfect crescendo to a memorable meal that alone was worth the airfare from the UK.
Superlatives apart - ambience, service and of course the food all first class.

“Like fine wine....”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

I havent been to SA for over two years now, but i can tell you, one visit that is a must for me, is lunch at Havercroft's restaurant in Stanford. It is well worth the drive from Cape Town. Before we went to havercroft's, I had lunched and dined with friends at various restaurants in Cape Town, but none of them came close to the experience that Brydon (good looking cook he calls himself!) and Innes (rude wife he calls her!) deliver. The goats cheese souffle was simply outstanding. I then had the ballotine of chicken stuffed with fresh local figs and herbs and was served with a roasted garlic custard and the most divine beurre blanc. I couldnt manage a pud, but i did taste my sister's adult jelly! Bravo to you both, the food, the setting, the humour is second to none and you know what, you just keep getting better as the years go on!
