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 restaurant with in-situ kitchen, fireside interior and vine-covered courtyard – just off our lounge.
Lekker eet! Guten appetit.



Every Thursday we select the best-loved flavours of the past, add our gourmet flair to the freshest ingredients, and create a three-course selection of dishes with their roots in our diverse culinary heritage and their presentation firmly in the contemporary world. Stellenbosch Soul Food Thursdays, R170 per person. The menu changes weekly.


If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s the loveliness of a long and languorous Sunday lunch. Join us every week for the perfect roast lamb, traditional roast-chicken pie, selection of salads and side dishes, and – of course – deliciously decadent desserts.
