We have visited Vergelegen on a few occasions and never been dissappointed. The stables restaurant is brilliant for breakfast with high quality food and great portion sizes and decent pricing. Best of all you get to walk it all off around the breath taking grounds.

Confidence was our waiter and he was average. Our food was fine. There was a problem with the pizza (base was burnt) but the manager was very apologetic and sorted it out. Well done on a good recovery. As usual the Vergelegen wine was excellent.
