About_banner

Reint and Karien Grobler, both former journalists with not only a passion for hearty, "trustworthy" food, but also for good old-time service-with-a-smile hospitality, bought the restaurant in 2009.

Reint was the news editor for the Eastern Cape edition of the Afrikaans newspaper Die Burger (up to 2008). Before their time in Port Elizabeth he was the editor of Oos-Rand-Beeld, a weekly regional supplement in the Gautang-based Afrikaans daily, Beeld.

During their time in the Eastern Cape Karien, a former news editor at Farmer's Weekly, dug her heels into tabloid journalism as senior reporter for the Afrikaans daily, Die Son.

With R7 000 in their pocket, a new computer in their Citi Golf and a dream to succeed, the couple's love affair with journalism started in 1997, when they started publishing the Breede River Gazette, a weekly community newspaper in the Breede River/Winelands area (Robertson, Montagu, McGregor, Ashton en Bonnievale). In 2003 they sold the paper to publishing giant Media24.

Reint was born in Bela-Bela (Warmbaths) and Karien in Potchefstroom. Both studied at the Potchefstroom University for Christian Higher Education (now North-West University).
