Located within the original wine cellar of the Manor House, The Werf Restaurant at Boschendal offers a unique and delightful dining experience that combines heritage, sustainability, and the great outdoors. With their new chef, Eric Bulpitt, who brings with him impeccable credentials from some of Cape Town’s most prestigious kitchens, The Werf is focused on seasonality and utilizing fresh, sustainable ingredients that showcase the best of local produce.
A Menu Focused on Vegetables and Umami Flavors
The menu at The Werf Restaurant is centered around vegetable-based dishes, with a strong focus on umami flavors. Chef Bulpitt’s passion for incorporating flowers into his dishes adds color and flavor to make the dining experience a feast for the senses. The restaurant’s outdoor courtyard setting under the oaks provides the perfect ambiance for a leisurely meal, making it just as suitable for breakfast with a view, as it is for a family lunch or a romantic dinner for two.
