The highlight of my stay was Stew-it, the sheep thinking he is a dog. I have stayed at Standford Hills on two separate occassions. The Tasting Room is a lovely restaurant with amazing views. I recommend the food and accommodation!

Expecting a country restaurant with country fare, we were blown away by the quality of food with unexpected flavor surprises. I believe the burgers are good, but why go that route when one can enjoy mez at it's best? The only downside is that smoking...More

Very pastoral – old outbuilding converted by adding large stoep, farm yard setting with large lawns and big dam, dogs and even a “hanslam”. Very relaxed atmosphere and plenty of space for children to run around. A nice varied menu, friendly service, with a wine-tasting...More

Lovely, relaxed venue with great food, beautiful views and very friendly staff. Stew-it, the resident lamb, always fun to meet.

This is my absolute favourite restaurant in the Stanford area. The food is consistently excellent as is the wine, but our best bit is the view, relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. Highly recommend.

The tasting room provides excellent food in a beautiful setting, not to mention a range of award-winning wines from the Estate. The chalkboard menu changes daily according to what is freshly available, and always includes options for children and vegetarians.
