We didn't expect such quality. Great experience and ambiance. The service was also very friendly and attentive. This has to be the top restaurant in the town, and you should go at least twice to try the different dishes if you are staying for a few nights.

The lamb was scrumptious, tender and just fell off the bone. Waitress was friendly, talkative, welcoming. Tables were cute, nothing spectacular but homely and inviting. Lovely restaurant overall - especially in comparison to the usual Grahamstown hangouts - this is something special.

According to Grahamstown residents still the best restaurant in the area. If you like antimacassars and chintz this is the place for you especially since food, even though slow, is great!

This is a very pleasant, old building with character. When its cooler there is a warm fire waiting in the lounge where you can enjoy a drink first, and in the dining room. It never seems busy but the food is excellent. Although the prices are very reasonable, the menu is quite restrictive (normally four mains, that don't seem to be changed that often). But the food is a real treat. A recent visit with a vegetarian revealed that they didn't have a vegetarian mains listed, but they could do a medley of vegetables. Our vegetarian friend said it was pleasant.
I would highly recommend the Cock house. It is our favourite restaurant in Grahamstown. Just don't go there too often.

A really pleasant setting and with real olde world charm. Food was really good especially the pork belly that was out of this world. Worth a try don't think you will be disappointed.
