The home from home, intimate, cozy, warm environment where you get the friendliest cup of pure rich Arabica coffee. The pub where everyone knows your name, enjoying a locally brewed draught beer. The Diner which prepares good home cooked food, "like Mum used to make". The Restaurant which boasts a superb menu variety, including a Game Menu, Warthog rib, Springbok shanks, and Gemsbok medallions.
Our beef sirloins and rump steaks are to die for along with Karoo lamb cutlets. If you have never tasted the now internationally famous Gunner's Burger, you haven’t lived! Feel like Portugal? The Prego steak roll will take you there.
Gunner's Mess was built adjacent to Gunner's Lodge, (so guests staying at the lodge have the added convenience of not drinking and driving... one stop shopping) on the site of the original trading store in Napier, Harris Kontant Bazaar, which was destroyed by fire in the early 1970’s. The cellar is all that survives of the original building and is still in use today.
Today Gunner's Mess is designed with an Aeronautical and military theme, Gunner himself being an ex pilot. The breakfast menu dishes are all named after vintage type aircraft, Spitfire, Tiger Moth, Fokker, Piper Cub.
Mouthwatering tea times at Gunner's include Death by Chocolate cake, Patatkoek, Chocolate Brownies, Apple Crumble and double thick milkshakes. Yes, we are child friendly.
However, Gunner's Mess is fully licensed and disabled friendly with street level access. We provide clean toilets with baby changing facilities. A must for passing travelers and tourists. Walk from your car straight into the coffee shoppe.
