We went on a very quiet night. I tried the karoo lamb curry and my husband had the venison steak. Both were delicious. Service was good too.

Nice restaurant on the main street but with nice garden. My partner had a chicken curry and I had a lamb curry, both excellent. They also have 3 ales brewed on site. Great service and freshly cooked food. Well done.

Hi there, my husband and I are celebrating a 40th wedding anniversary in your little town this weekend, I see you have a garden setting, we are coming from Cape Town on Friday 23rd and will be bringing our little dog with us, Would it be at all possible for us to sit outside (weather permitting of course) on Friday evening and bring her with us? Many thanks Zena Becker
