We thoroughly enjoyed the food and wine evening with Deux Freres wine estate. Lovely ambiance, great food explained in a enjoyable way by the executive chef and attentive service by Basil and his staff. And ... enjoying such a wonderful evening with three awesome girls was the cherry on the cake.

The highlight of my two visits to The Lord Charles. Welcoming, friendly, attentive. An interesting menu, but look carefully at the specials. I had a starter of smoked duck with varied dressings that was quite superb. Klein Zalze Chenin is recommemded, and the Somerbosch reds. Don't omit the high drama of the way they present ice-cream and chocolate sauce!

Food is great and so is the service.The atmosfere driving up to the parking and walking up those stairs to the entrace reminds me of a bygone era where stylish dining was a a common phenomena. Buffet breakfast bitt pricy but if your ambiance is great one wont mind paying a bitt extra

It is not the biggest menu you can imagine, but each of the descriptions make you want to select that particular meal. We order the linefish, the sirloin steak and the duck and were presented with the most appetising dishes. Safe to say not a crumb was wasted. Truly a great experience
