A collaboration with nature on every plate.

Situated in the beautifully revamped original cellar of the Manor House, the focus at The Werf Restaurant is on presenting contemporary farm to table dining using the best available local, seasonal and ethically-sourced ingredients.  90% of our menu is produce from the farm including our Black Angus beef, forest reared pork and vegetables and herbs from The Werf Food Garden which can be viewed from the restaurant balcony.

In 2018 we won the Woolworths Sustainability Award and placed in South Africa’s Top 30 restaurants at the Eat Out Awards.

Executive Chef Allistaire Lawrence has created a menu where diners choose from 3 to 4 plates across four categories; Garden, Ocean, Pasture and Sweet. What we offer depends on the daily harvest and creativity of our chefs. Our wine list champions not only Boschendal wines but also a selection of the best natural and biodynamic wines. Freshness, authenticity and artistry characterise each plate and our dishes are constantly evolving in rhythm with the seasons. 

The bar is open 7 days per week and serves a farm plate menu offering small tastes of our garden and butchery produce is available from Monday - Saturday 10.00 - 21.00 and Sunday 10.00 - 17.00.

For parents who wish to enjoy some adult-only time in the restaurant, The Tree House, our Edu play centre provides a fully supervised activity programme for kids aged 4 - 14yrs. Please click here for more information, activities must be booked at least 24hrs in advance.
