Party of about 30 people. Sunday lunch with predetermined dishes. Prepared like you grandmother did. Making you wish you were 22 again without the weight problem, so that you could eat twice as much. Go and be fed!!!!

We celebrated our wedding anniversary in the congenial company of John and Trish. Lunch turned into a long afternoon of great company, delicious food, excellent wines and fabulous home made goodies. We'll definitely go back and hopefully next time to stay on the farm.

What a pleasant surprise, the vineyards in the eastern Freestyle, and the wines excellent. The food is ideal for a traveler to our part of the country. Good local food

Coming back from our drive from Fouriesburg going towards Clarens, we decided to follow the sign pointing to the Rose Hip Restaurant as we were rather thirsty. We sampled John's Pinotage and Shiraz Bald Iris wines. We left purchasing a bottle or two! Good luck...More
