Rhone Homestead, our oldest manor house dating from 1795, has been newly decorated with many of our heirloom antiques.

It now hosts our traditional Cape buffet on Sundays throughout the year, and by reservation for groups of 20 or more.

Traditional Cape Buffet
All our dishes pay homage to our heritage as a traditional Boland farm with recipes passed down through generations of Boschendal cooks.

On arrival you are welcomed with a glass of sherry on the stoep or a wine tasting in the bar, and then you can wander towards the dining room where you can expect a feast of historic proportions.

You will find a selection of salads, hot and cold starters, sambals, roti and fresh soups with warm bread straight from our bakery. Our favorites are still represented like crispy roast potatoes, spicy bobotie with homemade chutneys, curried fish, baked lamb and roast beef raised on the farm.

On the ancient dresser in the voorkamer, a festival of desserts awaits the determined gourmand. Steaming malva pudding with custard, meringues & cape gooseberry mousse, milk tart and koeksisters are some of the delicious sweets that we serve depending on the weather and our mood!

End your feast with brandy snaps bursting with whipped cream and quality coffee.

The Chef and our Passion
At Boschendal our focus is on celebrating the bounty of our valley producing flavourful and nourishing food using the best quality seasonal ingredients sourced from our fields and pastures as well as other local farms.

Executive chef Christiaan Campbell ensures that however sinfully you indulge yourself, you can be comforted by the knowledge that we are constantly striving to serve food which meets the highest ethical standards, using free range animals, green listed Sassi approved fish and naturally grown veggies.

Special Dining Events
During the rest of the week Rhone Homestead is available for groups, meetings and conferences for 20 people or more.

Give us a call if you are a group traveling together, celebrating something or you are simply looking for a great venue to get a big family or group of friends together for a traditional Cape buffet lunch.
