We stopped for lunch. Got an explanation on the craft of beer making. Friendly service, and excellent pizza accompanied the beer. A must stop if you are in the area.

Local cradt beers, wines and hand crafted brandies. A must when in Barrydale. Although we did not eat due to time, the pizzas smelt great!

We stopped here at 9.45 as part of our road trip and had an Italian pizza and tasted their beers. Pizza was delicious and the beer was great with it. Perfect place to stop for food and great view and experience.

How nice to find local wines at great prices. And what a great find to see the local brandies. 3,7 and 10 year respectively. Buy local it's the right thing to do.
