Marilyn's Tea Garden is fast becoming one of the most popular venues in the Upper Highway area to gather and visit with family and friends. In recent months we have seen immense improvements, changes and refurbishments in and around the magnificent old farmhouse and gardens, all of which have added more appeal to the already stunning environment.
The grand old house, with its wrap around veranda, is one of the original farmhouses ever built in Kloof. The veranda, with drop down blinds for protection from the wind and rain, now offers comfortable seating for approximately 40 people, with views of the garden and nursery. Inside the house is an intimate and cosy 12 seater restaurant for those looking for a little more privacy and this venue can also double up as a small conference room for corporate meetings comfortably seating 10 delegates. For families and friends, wishing to sit in the gardens and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air there is now ample seating to sit and eat and while away the day.
Our tea garden restaurant offers a menu with choices for breakfast and lunch, as well as an array of delectable, home baked cakes to satisfy any sweet tooth. Hot and cold beverages are also on sale and freshly made popcorn is now available for the children. Every Saturday, last Sunday of the month and public holidays a sumptuous breakfast buffet is on offer in the garden, so do come, eat, relax and enjoy the ambiance and the live music presented by Belinda Dolphin and friends.
For those wishing to catch up on some work while relaxing over a fresh scone and cappuccino, we have free Wi Fi available for you to connect to the internet. An ideal opportunity to mix business with pleasure!
FREE RANGE POLICY
In keeping with our SPCA's policy of zero tolerance for cruelty to animals all meat products and eggs used in our menu items have been carefully sourced from various free range farms in and around Kwa Zulu Natal. Free range eggs are available for sale at the tea garden daily.
FUN AND ENTERTAINMENT FOR THE CHILDREN
The safe, beautiful gardens offer plenty of space for children to run and play while moms and dads relax and enjoy the facilities. The soft play area for toddlers under the age of four years, has been relocated to the shady spot under the trees, close to all the other children amenities. This area is fenced off for the safety of the toddlers and has tables close by for the mom's to sit and relax, while also being able to keep an eye on the bigger children. With 5 jungle gyms, swings and slides available every day, we also have a jumping castle available on a Monday, Thursday, Saturday and every last Sunday of the month and Public Holidays. A true paradise for children and parents alike!
