Graham Howe

Café Tebaldi is a landmark for seriously good country fare, served beneath the old rietdak and crooked beams of the thatched 1856 homestead. The venue exudes the serenity of this spiritual retreat, from the cry of peacocks to the soothing yellow tones and candlelit tables. The breakfasts are out of this world with, say, softly poached golden eggs Florentine smothered in heavenly hollandaise, with smoked salmon and wilted spinach on a bed of crispy rösti.

Relax before dinner with a mindful mediation around the garden well, led by your host. The menu offers a compassionate vegan platter – roasted brinjal, quinoa rissoles and jewelled couscous – as well as very good home-made vegetarian gnocchi and vegetarian spicy red bean chilli. Start with a hearty Tuscan ribollita bean soup, served with freshly baked rosemary rolls and butter. The retro ripe camembert in phyllo with citrus compote is another winner.

For mains, tuck into a signature lamb shank served in a rosemary jus with butternut mash, or a creamy fish pie infused with tarragon and crème fraîche topped with parmesan. The ingredients are farm-fresh, the flavours robust, with generous, hearty portions that will satisfy an appetite awakened by the country air.

Leave space for satiny smooth chocolate ganache tart, or delicious home-made ginger, orange and lemon ice cream.

A good wine list offers affordable local wines, in addition to craft gin and spirits from the area.

Warm and attentive country hospitality.

Enjoy tranquil daytime eating on a garden terrace – or dinner in the elegant, intimate dining room.
