“Fantastic Pit-stop enroute to Midmar”
Reviewed 10 February 2014 via mobile

Wow!!! We stopped for a pit-stop on the way to the Midmar Mile, after lunching on a delicious plate of Ribs and Chips, kids stretched legs running on the lawn, enjoyed the friendly staff, our 4x4 would not start :-(
Jolene immediately helped with jumper cables, but to no avail. She then drove me to the local tyre supplier and he could assist. Good food, good service and a manager who knows the meaning of "going the exra mile"!!!!! Thanks Jolene and all success to your fabulous deli and gift shop. We WILL stop again, regards Joanne

“Excellent food, very poor service from the kitchen”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

Our drinks were served promptly, however, the ploughman's platter we ordered took about 45 minutes to arrive. As the platter consisted mainly of bread rolls, cold cuts, cheeses, salad and condiments, the slow service was beyond comprehension. We speculated that the kitchen was either understaffed or totally dis-organised, with take away orders being given undue preference.

When it finally arrived the food was excellent, and we will therefore give it another try.

“Nice place but staff issues!”
Reviewed 19 December 2013

Our family of 5 stopped off recently for afternoon tea. A very comfortable place with nice décor, obviously a lot of time and effort has gone into setting this up. Why then, do the owners not concentrate on staff training? The quality of the food was ok but the waiters are all huddled together chatting about something and ignoring the customers. Yet another example of lack of supervision from the owners, wake-up!! Customers will walk out of your carefully decorated place, with your carefully thought out menu, and go elsewhere if there is no service! Sadly this is becoming a familiar sight.

“Best coffee, lunches in Winterton”
Reviewed 19 December 2013 via mobile

Excellent coffee. Very nice lunches available. Interesting shop, deli. Would recommend the pork neck chops, for a braai. Staff could be a little more friendlier. Couldn't get a smile from any of them. We frequent the area and always stop at this place.

“Very good food ... Disinterested waiters”
Reviewed 5 December 2013 via mobile

We stopped off for lunch. The deli and restaurant has great ambiance, and the owners have spent a great desk of time and money getting the feel right.

The food was exceptional, but the waiting staff were terrible.

Very nice pizza and the chicken salad was very nicely made.

Get the waiters right and you have a winner.
