Mrs Simpson's should be on your Dullstroom list

We had the most amazing weekend getaway in Dullstroom two weeks back. One of the places that really deserves a mention, is Mrs Simpson's. I would not have given it a second look driving past there, but you have to go in to experience the ambiance, the people and the great food.

We started off our Friday evening at Wild about Whisky, and after that we went to Mrs. Simpson's. The whole weekend was a treat, and this is one I want to remember and go back to. The history of the restaurant and well as the history of Mrs Simpson is well worth looking up. Wallis Simpson must have been something in 1930 to have dated the Prince of Wales while she had two divorces behind her, and he abdicated from the throne for her. A true love story!

Mrs Simpson's has been in Dullstroom since 2004. On the Friday night it was packed. Luckily we had a reservation. We all ordered something different from the menu. Of course I did not take photos (too busy eating *face-palm slap*), but nobody was disappointed. I ordered a starter of haloumi combined with extra vegetables and it was more than enough for my vegetarian tastes and stomach.

This was by far the best way to start a great weekend in Dullstroom, about three and a half hours drive from Johannesburg.
