Moggs Country Cookhouse restaurant review

Mom and daughter team Jenny and Julia Mogg run this rustically charming country cookhouse at the end of a winding dirt road. Tucked into the folds of the Hemel and Aarde valley, with spectacular views of mountains and vineyards, you can look forward to a truly heartfelt experience. The ever changing blackboard menu is seasonal, fresh and local. Not to mention packed with options that will leave you spoilt for choice, or struggling to make them. All the herbs and veggies grow in the garden alongside the kitchen and the cooking style is simple, home made, country classics with a refreshing twist.

Mains: Pork Fillet stack with bacon, mushroom, blue cheese, rocket, mash and berry drizzle (R105); Slow roasted lamb shank, pureed spinach mashed potato, roasted garlic, feta and basil sauce (R145)

The small wine list is locally focused with good variety for all palates. While away an afternoon in front of the fireplace under the pine cone ceiling, or soaking up the sunshine and views from the verandah, either way, Its bound to be an absolute pleasure. Note: Take cash as they don’t have card facilities.
