Friendly and attentive owner. Great menu offering an interesting array of dishes, making choices difficult. The pickled (piggled) fish was excellent and served with a lovely selection of salads. The game and chips were also excellent. Meal superbly rounded off with a delectable choc cake.

Delightful tea shop with an unusual menu, including some vegetarian options. Also a nice alternative to the Dullstroom restaurants that are on the main road where your meal is continually interrupted by the huge trucks passing by.
