I had the tempura prawn salad as a starter and the lamb on crushed potato with vegetables as a main. There were 3 dessert choices... More

We ate here two nights in a row whilst staying at the hotel and we weren't disappointed. The choice was just right and the food and service was superb.

The perfect restaurant for an anniversary or romantic date night. Excellent service, beautiful surroundings & decor. The food is what you would expect of a 5 star establishment. Delectable dessert menu!

What a lovely experience. High tea and a game of croquet in this lovely old world charm home and adjoining gardens. We were served a tasty selection of savoury and sweet treats. A table was set for us on the veranda and we were then left to leisurely serve ourselves and enjoy the afternoon. The garden was frequented by numerous... More

As I found this place on tripadvisor, I took my husband for anniversary dinner there. We stopped by their closed gate and they wouldn't even open, the woman on intercom said we can't come in without a booking. So we gave a call and there were free tables..! What a stupid way to treat people. Maybe good enough for locals,... More

If your looking for a quality meal, shared with a loved one accompanied by candlelights and classy wine, I highly recommend visiting Hacklewood!! The line fish was exceptional on my last visit and the desserts are always a win. A visit to the under ground wine cellar to select your evenings "treats" is a must. And if you find yourself...

Was invited by Nedbank to a wine pairing dinner, 4 course meal and every dish was fantastic. The food was alive with flavours and presentation was out of this world. Dessert was a crumbed Brie like I've never tasted before. Would highly recommend this Resturant.
