Owners description

The Greenhouse concept is rather simple: a stop under the trees in the garden where one can have something to drink and eat, much like the tea gardens in old city parks.

When the weather's good, we sit outside under the trees; when it's rainy and cold, we sit inside the 'glaskas'. Food-wise, the style of eating is laid-back picnic-style: fresh farm-to-table salads, sandwiches using artisanal breads filled with cheese and charcuterie, together with a fresh garden salad in a beautiful glass jar and home-made accompaniments from our larder. And then, of course, delicious scones with lemon curd and cream, and an array of cakes and tarts.

Food is served in picnic styled baskets with beautiful Delft themed wrappings. It's deliberately informal.

User reviews

  • Visited the farm last Sunday. Whilst we enjoyed the facilities, we were greatly disappointed by the menu items available from the Greenhouse restaurant. As we do not eat pork/ham, the already limited list of items was greatly reduced. Having been shown to our table, the special containing chicken was sold out (around 13h10, so well within the lunch period), whilst the cheese sandwich contained ham, which we were told was pre-prepared(!) and thus taking out the ham was not an option. As neither of us felt like eating a salad, we left without ordering anything. This left a bitter taste in our mouths (pun intended!) as we would have liked to have brought family members on a later occasion. To make matters worse, one week later and the management have not even responded to my polite email. Will not be returning there again. We ended up at the lovely Lust Bistro on the Vrede en Lust Wine Estate, which is definitely worth a visit.
