The outside of this incredible local hangout is really deceiving. There is a small nursery type display of plants at the entrance to the supermarket which is also the entrance to the restaurant. The supermarket not only sells wonderful local products but some locally manufactured furniture as well as cow hides...

The restaurant is open 7 days a week for breakfast & lunch but only open for dinner on a Wednesday & Friday & on a Sunday they do a traditional Carvery with roast potatoes, veggies, Yorkshire puddings & gravy - delicious...

There is a lovely wooden bar area where the walls are adorned with old farm & cattle equipment & the wood burning fireplace adds to this warm & cosy atmosphere. On a Friday night all the locals meet here to enjoy some micro brewery beers made in Notties Brewery & catch up on the week's activities before making their way to their tables.

The food is a real treat.
We always start off with a portion of lamb ribs & Linga's homemade biltong sticks (these are warm breadsticks) served with their secret recipe pink sauce which is so morish. Mains are usually a 500g T-bone with chips for him & a 200g fillet with veg for me which has never disappointed but last night I tried the beef curry which came with all the sambles & trimmings & I must say WOW!!! This curry was exceptional. It was saucy but not too saucy, it had just the right amount of heat & the meat was cooked to perfection!! And lastly if you have space their cheese platter which comes with very generous sized pieces of mixed Indezi cheeses, gherkins, pickled onions, mixed biscuits & their famous Linga Lapa dip is a great way to end this dining experience.

If you're in The Midlands this place is a MUST!!! But you gotta book as they get full weeks in advance.

We stopped there on our way to the Drakensberg Mountains. The food, atmosphere, service were great. The biltong sticks were an absolute winner. Menu also good. Before leaving, it is worthwhile stopping at the other shops as well.
