The food and company was excellent but the venue needs some TLC. The landmark to the venue is overgrown by plants and the street not maintained. Also overgrown by grass and trees. So much that 2 cars can't pass each other.

This places is out of town and gives a very tranquil "farm" ambiance. The service is casual but the coffee and snack is "yummy". The walkabout in Smuts Museum is also a bonus and the entrance fee is reasonable.

Visiting Jan Smut's home gives one an excellent insight into one of South Africa's greatest statesmen. The property is well maintained, with original furniture in the home including an extensive library of diverse subjects and intrests. Beautiful day out in Irene.
