“Amazing wood oven pizzas in a relaxed setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

We dropped by here mid-afternoon for a late lunch. They close the main kitchen but the wood fired pizza oven was burning away.

The outside area is built around a courtyard with a great mixture of furniture all under a big canopy.

We had two amazing pizzas and some nice craft beer. The staff were super friendly and helpful as we sat on a comfy sofa with the restaurant's dog Chippie sleeping nearby.

“Well worth the trek!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014

These toilets must be the most photographed! Great burger & beer topped with the girls having an enjoyable brows. Midweek venture, so lacking a little in atmosphere, however we did get very good service as a result! I would love to eat here of an evening, on a weekend, to experience the "Greyton Night-life"! The garden area itself is a view, but so are all the items inside.

“Disappointing dining experience”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

We recently spent two days in Greyton and decided to visit the higher rated restaurants on Tripadvisor which included Searle's. I cannot fault the service, however my wife and I were both let down by our food. My wife ordered the "slow braised pork", but instead she got a few smoked kassler steaks which could have come from any supermarket to be honest. I on the other hand was tempted into ordering a pizza due to the food fired pizza oven in the courtyard. My pizza ended up coming from the kitchen though and was clearly oven made. I'm guessing the pizza oven must be for show. What a wasted asset. The nice select of craft beer though helped to save the day a bit.
