“Lunch on a weekend”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Too noisy - more of an upmarket pub - suppose it would be OK if you knew there were no rugby matches being tevevised.

“Best meat with reasonable wine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014

Baron has been serving excellent meals for years. An upgrade (venue and menu) a number of years ago gave it the necessary repositioning. The meat is really good and prepared as ordered ("rare" is in fact rare).

“Once again... Best steak in SA”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014 via mobile

I have been indulging in the Barons steaks since 2000 (when it was still the Baron and Quail) and they have never disappointed.

The coldest, freshest Guinness and great ambiance are the sides to fantastic/great food.

Keep on keeping on!

“Popped in for Lunch - Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

I popped in for lunch with 4 other colleagues, my first visit to "The Baron" anywhere.

Location was good, easy parking and the place looked inviting. The serving staff were polite and efficient.

Took a table outside in the shade, table top sticky and unpleasant and discovered others the same. Its a simple task to wipe and keep a table clean!

The main disappointment was with the food, which i can only describe as "bland", poorly presented and low quality ingredients. With us all choosing a mixture of dishes (steak / chicken / veggie) they all came out looking like something I would expect at a low quality roadside diner.

OK the prices are reasonable but I would expect appetising food and more care to the table cleanliness.
