This place is renowned for its breakfast, I'm glad to say the lunch is even better. An amazing view over the valley of a thousand hills.

I first visited many years ago and was so taken by their amazing and totally generous veggie platter that I made a stop here every time that I was in the vicinity. I will still keep going here as it is awesome. They do great teas, coffees and snacks - both savouries and desserts. Being in the Valley of 1000... More

We had breakfast there on the morning before we headed back to Scotland. Our daughter loved coming here back in June 2016, and we can see why. The food was great and the staff made us really welcome. Another reminder of what great service looks like. Many thanks, Colin and Karen

Service is always good, food is the same as it was 5 years ago. Menu could be changed as it is a bit boring having eaten there for the last 16 years! Shop is delightful and full of charming gifts. A great stopover for bus tours who may enjoy quality food at affordable prices and get a few pictures of... More

What a superb location for a restaurant - on the rim of a hill with a wide, panoramic view of the Valley of a Thousand Hills stretching into the distance. I could have feasted my eyes on the view only but we had a lovely breakfast experience with family , so on all counts, a memorable morning! The menu is... More

Arriving at the restaurant with my elderly mom on a busy Sunday morning without her wheelchair was optimistic I know. However the car park attendant saw her in my car and asked me if I needed a 'reserved' parking adjacent to the restaurant entrance and directed me to the bay. As I was climbing out the car a manageress of... More

We popped in here very late in the day and they were amazing to still serve us. The kitchen was closed so we had drinks and desert with the most amazing scenery. We were very welcome and it was beautiful.

We sat outside and the weather and view was great. But the menu choices were poor and the food not filling nor very appetising. The frappe was just watery coffee with ice cubes and the food platter had a lot of toppings but limited biscuits or bread to use.
