Stables is a chic, clean space on the historic Vergelegen Estate. The floor to ceiling windows along one side of the restaurant allow you to drink in the spectacular view of the trees and mountains in the distance. A life-size wooden horse artwork greets you as you enter, leaving you in no doubt that you are in what used to be the estate’s stables. Stylish chairs and sleek tables are balanced by gorgeous fynbos table centre pieces, sculptures and designer ceramics dotted around. Serving everything from sandwiches to salads, steak, burgers and pizzas, the bistro-style menu offers tasty meals for the whole family. (There’s a kiddies’ menu, too.). Fountains outside and gorgeously spacious grounds make Stables ideal for lunch with family and friends.
