Dewside are one of those restaurants where you end up spending more time chatting to people you have just met than the party that you went with. It is cosy , friendly and good qality

The only place in Thabazimbi with consistent quality meals. They also offer craft beer which is unique and really good. The atmosphere is really good and you will be received like an old friend. Service is very helpful but relaxed.

Friendly service, well prepared meals and craft beer. A tour of the brewery gives rare insight to the hard work and dedication of the brew master.

Mmmmmm, while I have read raving reviews about this establishment. Much was to be desired. If you are looking for a loud and dark pub environment then this is the place for you. Waiters have little if any hospitality training, food was served over and above patrons. Very little knowledge of what was on the menu. Food was average, good... More

Dewside is a restaurant and brewery surrounded by the iron ore rich mountains that gave the town its name. Rudolf and Tanya has made this place special with interesting and tasty food and homebrewed beer. The portions are huge, the music excellent and the atmosphere lively. The eisbein, game pie and all the desserts are my favourite dishes.

We recently had dinner as a group at Dewside and was pleasantly surprised. The menu for the evening was well thought through with lots of intelligent combinations. Attention to detail was obvious on every serving and all components excellently prepared. Would come back for more any day!

Walking into a totally unknown establishment and feeling at home immediately - thank you Rudolf & Tanya for the hospitality! Nice ambience and good venue. This was a most pleasant visit and a lovely way to finish of our vacation at Marakele NP, that is having some great homebrew beer and delicious food before returning home! Highly recommended!

What a magical little place. From the vibey music to the intimate ambiance. We loved the hospitality of the owners, Rudolf and Tanya who shared a welcome drink with us at the bar. Thank you for making us feel so welcome! The best Eisbein and the home made lamb pie was out of this world. Good hearty meals in substantial... More
