Our Yard


My Korean wife and I recently visited Graaff Reinet and were really impressed with "Our Yard". We'll definitely be back soon! Hope you enjoy the video we made. Our Yard also features quite prominently in Part 1, so check that out too ๐Ÿ˜‰
Thanks again for the excellent service

I received a meal from Monday to Friday -superb! My girls spoilt me in lieu of Mothers Day! Really enjoyed everything! ๐Ÿค—
Baie dankie Our Yard vir die wonderlike kompetisie. Die twee het hulle weereens gate uit geniet en wou nie huis toe . Hulle moes natuurlik eers lekker afkoel voor ons moes gaan! Baie dankie vir die voucher, heerlike kos en lekker kuier.

Great service and an amazing atmosphere!
We had supper at Our Yard. I chose the spanakopita and salad, which was seriously good. Hubby had the open Karoo lamb pie with veg, which he said was delicious. To end off our meal, we decided to try the house speciality: the Trio of South African Desserts, which consists of a little koeksister, a small crรจme brulรฉe, and a mini malva pudding with custard. I would highly recommend it! Our waitress, Melly, was excellent.
Lovely veggie stuffed potato skins !!! And an abundance of bees interested in my pink tonic water !!! Dankie.

The combination of farm honey and home-grown limes, when blended with the finest botanical spirit, proved irresistible.
