About The Country Bumpkin

The Country Bumpkin Restaurant is situated at the Floradale Nursery in Beacon Bay in East London on the sunshine Coast. It is the very first eatery you will find on the lovely Jikeleza Route if you are traveling from the East London side in an easterly direction. We are on the Old Transkei Road (R102 / M10 to Gonubie).

About The Country Bumpkin

The restaurant is situated in the old farm house and is surrounded by the natural beauty of the evergreen foliage of the shrubs and trees in the nursery. It features a beautiful garden with a children’s play area. The garden is perfectly suited for the hosting of wedding ceremonies. The décor has a quirky feel with local art on the walls. Oregon pine floors and sideboards reminiscent of grandmothers kitchen adds to the atmosphere.

The kitchen produces wonderful fresh faire and The Bumpkin is known for its carvery as well as a la carte menus.
