Winery
“The Barrydale Cellar is one of several brandy cellars in the area, and offers a lovely riverside restaurant serving up a good selection of food. If you love sour dough bread, don't forget to ask for a loaf after 2pm when they come fresh out the oven.”

Restaurant
“The Karoo Art Hotel is one of my favourite country hotels in the whole world. It is fun, funky, arty, and a bit eccentric, but totally warm and welcoming at the same time. It has art on all its walls for sale, a fabulous sports bar and place to try out your vinyl DJ-ing skills, whilst its restaurant serves hearty food. During winter they show retro movies in their original bioskoop cinema - with popcorn thrown in. It also has a lovely pool oasis.”
