“Dine in retro style”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

I loved the piano accompaniment to the Sunday buffet meal. Breakfast can be taken on the stoep facing a lush garden and one can sit outside in the warm summer evenings

“Good in house eating”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

As residents at the Hotel we decided to try the Art Deco restaurant. Like all good eating establishments of the 1930s our meal was accompanied by tinkling on the ivories, and the pianist played standards that were well known to most of the more mature patrons.
The food was good, hot, large portions and the wait was not excessive before it was brought to our table. Good wine list of both local and close area vineyards. When we go back we will certainly eat in the restaurant again

“Good but not great!! Don't expect to much!!”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

We had dinner at the hotel, specially for their Lamb shanks as it came highly recommended from the lodge we stayed at. Food took quite a while to arrive, i assumed duo to a private group dinner in an adjacent room. Lamb shank was nice but huge, with a lumpy mash and soft butternut all over the show. Appearance of the plate made me feel stuffed.I was looking forward to the cheese cake on their menu,but i couldn't even finish the shank.The beef rump was under cooked and tough.The pork dish was spot on and delicious.It was nice to have the chef at our table to check on us.The manager also made a turn at our table, but was of putting with negative comments on the lodge we stayed at.In my opinion he should be great full for them to recommend the country hotel as a good place to dine at, especially in the slow winter season. Service in general was good and the piano player reminded us about the great golden oldies,we enjoyed his music.

Dear Annie W,

Thank you for your great review! We specialise in traditional South African dishes, and are happy to know you enjoyed your dinner with us. The atmosphere created by the combination of good food, friendly service and, of course, the piano played by Kosie is very special to us indeed. We have recently redecorated the restaurant and look forward to your next visit to check it out.


James Mulligan, Chef.
