The Post House, Greyton

Situated in the beautiful village of Greyton, The Post House restaurant offers a really pleasant dining experience. Greyton is worth the drive, and you can walk through the streets popping in and out of all the local establishments. There is a Saturday market but we went on a Sunday and so missed this. We did however enjoy the solitude of the area, and noted how clean and well kept the homes and businesses are.

The Post House, Greyton
the posthouse restaurant

The Posthouse is well known to all South African television advert watchers as the place where the Bells advert was shot. It is one of my favourite adverts, and I am sure to run around Scotland next year shouting “Dougal it’s an emergency” to every flyfisherman I see. The restaurant has an extensive selection of whiskeys and a good selection of wines which on average are not cheap. We chose a Raka Pinotage (R120) which was well priced and perfect for a lunch time meal.

The menu is quite vast and Dave chose the 3 course set menu which was a starter of tomato soup, a main course of lamb with vegetables and a dessert of chocolate pudding (R85). He could have chosen the butternut or the vegetable soup, both of which looked good going to other tables. I chose the creamy chicken livers to start (R55) and then could not decide between the gourmet chicken burger (R55) and the roasted butternut salad (R50) for my mains.

Dave said that his soup was good, and it was served with lovely home made health bread. My livers were very tasty, but had a hint of chilli that was not mentioned on the menu. They were served with softly toasted French loaf.  I chose the salad which was served cold – which I did not expect and it needed salt. The vegetables on Dave’s main course were good. My salad was lacking in spinach – which was meant to be a main ingredient.

The service is friendly but not perfect – Dave’s plate was cleared before I had finished my salad, and his pudding was served before my plate was cleared. The waitress did not ask why I left half the butternut on the plate. Dave’s dessert was a warm pudding with custard and he said the meal reminded him of a childhood holiday where they stayed in a hotel and a 3 course meal was served every night.

  4. Looks like such a great place, Tandy. I also don’t like plates being cleared before I’ve finished eating. A little training is needed there.
