Hi Graham thanks for posting a review here - we really appreciate the feedback. Our seafood buffet nights are on Sat nights (when we're not booked for private functions) at FloraBumpkin, and every Sunday lunch at Chintsa and Floradale. Thanks so much again for taking the time to review the Bumpkin! Lou, and the Bumpkin team.

“Great Value for Money”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

My friends and I tried the R50 buffet last year and I thought it was really great value for money! The food is good and there's a more-than-adequate selection of salads, meat, and dessert. Their mushroom soup is by far the best mushroom soup I've had in my life. I hope they bring back the R50 buffet, but I wouldn't mind coming back even if they don't.

Hi Erasms2002 thanks for your review ... and so glad you enjoyed the Bumpkin. Whilst our price has had to inevitably increase to R65 pp for the mid week carvery we think it's still terrific value for money - and hope to see you back soon! Lou

“Good Food, Friends and Fun”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Country Bumpkin is always a great outing, with a great variety of deliciously prepared food in abundant quantities, lots of fun for the kids and the opportunity to relax in a comfortably rustic environment.
We have always opted for an outside table. Unless the wind is howling or freezing cold, the outside vibe on the verandah is less busy than inside.
We have never been there on a quiet day, so booking is a must.

“Delicious!!!”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

In the grounds of Floradale Nursery, the Country Bumpkin is a great venue to enjoy buffet style dining. The food is really great, the selection was excellent and the atmosphere is awesome.

There is lots of the kids to do and you can sit in beautiful enclosed gardens while the kids play. While you are there drop into the Craft Gallery, a wonderful eclectic shop with something for everyone. Floradale Nursery has the most interesting plants and we NEVER go to EL without stocking up at our favourite nursery.
