I had the fish and chips which was fab. Sarah is known for her friendliness and warm welcome. Mina''s iced tea is a great thirst quenched on a hot day. Jam Tarts are dog friendly.

If you want to just "chill and relax" then this is the place to visit. Beautiful and serene with a running fountain, masses of flowers overflowing from clay pots and an ambiance that is so soothing. Lovely works of art being shown on the walls,...More

Stopped off here for a late lunch after recommendation from Rough Guide. Great quirky surroundings and the Bobotie pie was amazing with loads of salad. Children had chicken goujons and burger which were all freshly prepared. Really nice staff also. Loved it.

UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT: The Jam Tarts Barrydale has a whole new look. New thin crust pizzas in our wood fired oven. Mina's famous Malay lamb curry; Venison and chicken pies; famous baguettes; Bobotie. We are fully licensed and as a result make fabulously naughty milkshakes. We look forward to giving you a friendly Karoo welcome.
