There is only 2 words to discribe this restaurant..absolutely brilliant. The food is just amazing especially their bubble bread. the seating has to be outside under these 2 massive oak trees and then the live music just adds to the amazing atmosphere.

Visited on a Saturday afternoon for a friends engagement party and had a really good time. Tried their pizza and slider burgers and both were delicious. Good atmosphere.

This venue caters for many different tastes, as they have a downstairs pub, and decent restaurant inside what used to be a big old house (very pleasant), an outside 'beer garden' with live music on weekends and a coffee and beer brewery as an add-on. We enjoyed a long lunch in the restaurant. They offer generous and tasty starters and... More

We were a large group and waited on average 15 minutes for a round of drink. We also found the hostess to be extremely rude

Always nice to sit under the huge oak trees on a hot summer's day. My friend had lasagne which was delicious. I had chicken schnitzel that was good but the cheese sauce lacked something - adding salt helped a bit to improve the taste. The garlic and origanum bubble bread was huge and very very garlicky. There was live music... More

Great to visit with friends. Live entertainment at weekends. The food was freshly prepared and arrived in minimal time even though the place was packed! Couldn't fault the service and if you are fond of "real ales" there is an on site brewery that serves its own selection - you can sample all of them before you choose a truly... More

Went there on a Saturday lunch. Is situated in a beautiful outdoor area under a large tree. Ample space for the kids to run around. There is a play area but not suited for young children unfortunately- I hope they do look into this. The food was spectacular- most likely one of the best meals in Johannesburg! I had a... More

Visited this restaurant twice and enjoyed both times. Food is very good and portion sizes are generous. My mom had the seafood combo which was lovely. Chips are perfectly cooked. I had pizzas on both my visits... Both times I left with a doggie bag. Pizza bases are crisp and selection is wide and varied. My brother ordered the T-bone... More

Have been here numerous times and it's just going downhill . Pre booked tables are not reserved the waiters don't know what they are doing and they fumble around looking to deliver food. Absolutely disappointing !!!
