Situated in the oldest hotel in South Africa, on the site of its first church, Oude Werf’s dining history began with the hearty 19th Century country dishes of legendary Hotel owner, Tant Betje Wium. Today, our Chef explores the region’s many flavours and vintages at a splendid new restaurant with in-situ kitchen, fireside interior and vine-covered courtyard – just off our poolside bar/coffee lounge and our famous ‘voorstoep’ on Church Street.
Breakfast, lunch, dinner and high tea are served daily.
Our daily Continental Buffet offers a generous selection of seasonal fruit, local cheeses, meats and patisserie. Still peckish? Order a traditional cooked breakfast or one of our signature dishes like Eggs Benedict or Smoked Salmon Crumpet… with fresh barista coffee naturally.
Recharge any time from noon to sundown in our shady courtyard (or indoors) with café style lunchtime favourites like salads, pasta, a generously-filled sandwich or wrap, scrumptious Cape snoek-cakes, classic fish ‘n chips, sirloin, or one of our ‘man-size’ ground beef burgers.
Settle in for Cape flavours with a gourmet twist, featuring Atlantic Salmon, locally-farmed Duck, Pork, Beef or Venison. Sample 4 classic Cape flavours with our ‘Truly South African’ main. And don’t miss a more-ish dessert or a glass or two of our region’s top vintages!
Afternoon tea & cocktail snacks
There’s always a delicious ‘in-betweener’ at Oude Werf – served in our courtyard or lounge, at our bar, pooldeck or on our ‘voorstoep’. Try old-style Afternoon Tea with a spread of glorious cakes. Build your own cocktail platter from our Snack menu… and dare you miss a slice of our legendary cheesecake? Afternoon tea: 14h30-17h00 daily. Cocktail platters can be ordered out: Please place order 24 hours beforehand.
This is ‘Wine Country’ and our selection is always one of the latest and best, featuring top names from some of our world-famous wine region’s estates.
