“The staff are great, the owner is another matter”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

Being a visitor to Polokwane we had heard that The Farmyard, now Mike's Kitchen, had been a great place to hold a function.
We organised a big dinner weeks in advance for our workshop and everything seemed on track. We organised a menu earlier in the week, sitting down with the day manager and working though everything. Couldn't be more helpful. Checked then venue, everything looked good. Manager talks to owner - no can't use venue because he has organised a knees-up. Stiff cheddar.
Manager was greatly embarrassed and went out of her way to find somewhere else for us at short notice.
My recommendation is give this bloke a wide berth. His function fell through and rang us to say we could have our function there. Ha Ha Ha. Where did he get his business skills?

Nice menu, wine list satisfactory. Atmosphere fine for families. Ample parking. Service was a tad slow, but good food takes time.
