Overview

As the first wine and brewing estate in the southern hemisphere, we run a small but growing micro brewery, water bottling plant, winery and vineyard situated in the Western Cape of South Africa. We have much to offer, not only to the beer and wine enthusiast, but to those just interested in visiting our beautiful country estate near Stanford in the shadow of the Klein Rivier mountains. Here you will find out about our exceptional beer,our country estate, our brewery. As of September 2015 the restaurant is under new management called "Birkenhead Galley" separately listed in Trip advisor by the new owners. Come and enjoy our delicious food and freshly brewed beer, and visit our vineyard and winery where we produce Walker Bay Vineyards wines.

The "beer garden" is a great place for a light lunch whilst tasting the brewery's many beers/ales as it has fantastic views of the Stanford valley and mountains beyond. Whilst the service may be deemed slow it is efficient and friendly. The waiters often have...More

Worst service for any restaurant we have ever been to. We waited over an hour for a salad and a butternut soup, and then the order arrived with one salad not even there. Will never return.

A stunning vineyard and brewery that offers a range of wines, craft beers & ciders. Breathtaking view and stunning food. The stout pie & seafood basket was fantastic. The Honey Blonde Pilsener was a real treat

We have been here for an hour and placed orders but only received water and coke in fair time. Beers took an Hour to arrive. Don't know how long the cheese platters will take to serve. Nice view though
