  • Definitely a place to go. New owners. Sooooo improved. Great deli and cheese tasting spot, and the cheese....... Well, our of this world!!! So yummy 😋 and sincere praise to the lads working there. What a happy, smiley and helpful person. A great asset to the owners business. Highly recommend. Oh, and there is a pettying area with sheep and donkeys. Chickens walking about and a picnic area. BUT.... Do not take your own picnic. Order one there
  • The Klein River Cheese venue is a nice way to spend a casual 2-4 hours in the morning or late afternoon. A stop well suited for parents with young children. The venue hosts a cheese deli, animal touch- farm-situation and a large picnic lawn. The venue is genuinely over-priced and under-staffed; expect to wait. R18 for a single small bread roll, R3 for the butter capsules, R110 for a (R65 cellar price) wine, and R250 for a 2 person cheese platter (containing less than R100 worth of cheese). Expect to wait during peak hours. Won't be returning any time soon.
  • Lovley place to visit. Beautiful gardens and settings. Great cheeses.
  • Great picnic venue if you have small kids, big lawns with shade, play area and the deli setup is superb. They provide picnic blankets and cutlery.
  • Kids loved the stop. Nice little shop and great play area for the kids
