Expect honest country cooking at this charming winelands bistro, where generous portions and bold flavours are the hallmark of the kitchen. Breakfast brings a crowd-pleasing range of the usual favourites, but for lunch and dinner there’s a subtle South African influence evident in starter plates such as bobotie croquettes and fragrant Malay fish cakes.
Main courses are more European in style, with a bold chicken and sweetcorn risotto, and a well-executed linguine with butterbeans and wild mushrooms. The BonBon Burger, with a home-made patty of beef brisket, is always a reliable choice.
Desserts are once again infused with local charm, with the malva pudding perhaps the best choice, lifted by roast apple purée and brandy snap biscuit.
The straightforward wine list is focused on smaller estates, with a limited by-the-glass selection.
Efficient, but lacking the hospitality expected of a country eatery.
The cosy indoor space comes complete with crackling fire for wintry days, but if the weather’s fine the terrace tables are the one to book.
Relaxed country lunches.
