I tried their speciality stew and was very disappointed. Totally lacked flavour . Wife tried the moussaka which was average , so we didnt risk any dessert. Only had one person serving so service was not great. We would not return.

Good food and reasonable prices. Being the only one's there at the time, it was quiet and relaxing with excellent views over the valley. Service needs a little improvement, but overall a great breakfast experience.

Had a good fill of food and craft beer here, with very friendly staff. The restaurant could do with a bit of a makeover but otherwise a great restaurant.More

After staying over one night in Sabie our breakfast was at The Woodsman. Buffet cereals and fruit etc followed by a very generous portion of cooked breakfast. Good value.

This place has one hell of menu. Breakfast, pub lunches, dinner, saganaki, trout, ribs. They have it all. The food was good, but you didn't always get exactly what you ordered. I ordered a breakfast dagwood and basically got a burger with egg on it....More

this establishment has it mini complex that sells books, clothing, accommodation. The restaurant is a must go since the departure of Lonecreek Spur in town. It has got a nice view of the Sabie mountains and Sabie streams down the Hazyview road

I always go to the woodsman on my Sunday Morning breakfast run with the motorbike. The staff is friendly and the food is good.
