You would think that this venue would have better food on offer. Not much of a menu and then what is on the menu is tasteless and boring. We've been wanting to go for ages... won't bother going again.

The last time I looked we still billed ourselves as a BREW PUB and not a Michelin star restaurant. Thus pub style fare. The emphasis is on Brew as in brewery as our multi gold awards testifies to.

We were in Dullstroom for the day and this was the last stop on our walk around the town. It's not a place to be missed. A great little brewery, excellent beer tasting and generally lovely surroundings whether you sit inside or out in the...More

We came all the way from Johannesburg to buy their award winning beer and coffee. Friendly helpful service we will come back. Theo's knowledge of beer is exceptional and the coffee house ground our beans especially. A definite must do in Dullstroom.

Best place to eat and drink in Dullstroom!! Gets really busy. Good food! My favourites: Anvil's Blond Ale (really smooth), cherry cider and the boozy cake. (definitely a must for those with a sweet tooth!) Great atmosphere! Pet friendly. Friendly staff!

Driving through Dullstroom and had some breakfast and coffee. Food was good. Some exciting items on the menu. Like boozycake! Would try the beer next time.

Great location, beautiful garden, lovely craft-beer selection. A glass window gives a good view into the brewery. Good coffee and fruit juice available for the non-beer drinkers...

We stopped here for a quick drink at the bottom of Dullstroom's main road. It was a hot day and we found a shady spot outside. The beer tasting was free (amazing) and superb- we tasted 9 different beers including a cherry beer (or is...More
