Mrs Gram is ridiculously over-excited to present to Swellengram Readers the results of her latest venture! The Swellendam Restaurant Guide. It is going to be updated and published monthly to reflect seasonal changes, and hopefully Swellendammers will participate by sending reviews and photos. (and suggestions) Future plans involve links to menus, and a key to the different services that each establishment provides. 5 different establishments will be picked each month to feature.
