OPEN TIMES
Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun

Open: Wednesday - Sunday


An 18th Century historic farm, Groote Post is home to Hilda’s Kitchen, one of the Western Cape’s most famous winery restaurants. An easy hour’s drive from Cape Town, the restaurant, which is in its 12th year now, is easily accessed from the R27, the West Coast Road.

A Wedding to Remember At Groote Post

Lovingly restored, the antique filled restaurant is located in the Manor House which is set on a rolling lawn overlooking the cellar with a courtyard area covered by vines.

Daytime weddings have become very popular at the farm. The service can be held on the lawn or on the rocks overlooking the Ceremonial Bell. Guests are entertained outdoors and lunch is served in the Manor House. Numerous photo opportunities exist.

We do not charge a venue hire fee and all award winning wines are sold at only a very small mark-up which helps when one is working to a budget. We believe we are the only venue to have such a small mark-up on their wine prices. Hiring costs are passed on directly to the Client (should this be required). This dependent on guest numbers and style of wedding expected and we levy a 10% service fee on the final account.

Accommodation is available in nearby Darling. Please see: www.darlingtourism.co.za.

Wedding Comments:
Hi Shaun and Debbie, I just thought I would send you a few pictures from the wedding. And also to say thanks again for making our day so amazing. We enjoyed every moment from the setting up to all the fun we had with our family and friends. And knowing that you 2 were taking care of everything in the background meant we could just relax and savour the moments. It really felt like we didn't have to worry about a thing and I know this is because you 2 (and your terrific staff) were working really hard!

And the food! I wish I could have the day over just so I can eat that delicious food again. It was by far the best wedding food I have ever eaten. Every single thing was so delicious and so many of our guest have commented on it and said how fantastic it was. Thank you for accommodating all our wishes and for executing everything so beautifully. If you would like to see more pictures: CLICK HERE
We will definitely be seeing you again soon. Enjoy the pictures.

Regards,
Nick
