We were at the brewery for a picnic. 60 persons in attendance. Fortunately most of our guests brought their own camping chair and with the tables we reserved we had enough seating. Efficient serving of our pre-ordered meals added to a great atmosphere under the trees....I was surprised my guests could ring up a tab of R3,5k on a Saturday... More

This little gem a stone's throw from the N1 highway is filled with surprises. We went to breakfast and ended up leaving 3 hours later! The portions are generous and the coffee is great. The view overlooking the lush green lawns and gardens isn't too bad either!

Food is good. Service is good. For a busy place, you can't complain about that. The atmosphere and vibe is great. It's next to Stellenbosch Brewery so head over for a pint while you waiting for table if you have to
