We were at the wine estate for wine tasting on the wine tram, and had lunch here. Unfortunately, only one item on the lunch menu was suitable for vegans. Otherwise a great experience.

Description
Our restaurant is set in a beautiful country garden where we serve lunch outdoors if the weather is favourable and indoors beside a roaring fire in the chilly months. We have a varied a la carte menu, served from Wednesday to Saturday offering a wide variety of meals, all made with fresh ingredients and our tried-and-trusted recipes. Our wine list offers all the Backsberg favourites as well as some special wines only available at the estate. Your kids will feel at home too, with a jungle gym in the garden along with a jumping castle and loads of space to play. Our 3 Course Sunday Lunch is served each Sunday accompanied by live entertainment. Bookings are essential. Contact us for any special events, weddings and corporate functions catered to your specific needs.
