Sophisticated yet child friendly

Really good, thoughtful service from Jasmine, well presented food and so kid-friendly (especially when sitting outside) with play area, no risks and just good fun, yet relatively sophisticated.

We had an amazingly good lunch at Vergelegen with amazing service & the wine selection was outstanding, very close to the best Shiraz I have ever tasted, perfect for a long lazy rainy day. Did I mention the brilliant Service?

I went with a friend for afternoon tea and was rather late as we'd spent too much time in the Manor house and garden, so our fault, but nevertheless, the staff served us whilst they cleared the decks around us preparatory to shutting up shop. The ambience is excellent and the vista - stunning!

An excellent restaurant with a great atmosphere and incredible food. Our waiter was very attentive and went out of her way to make sure we where happy. A walk around the estate afterwards is a must. Will defiantly be back!

We visited Vergelegen in a group of about 11 for breakfast. The restaurant is spacious, light and it was pleasantly warm inside. Our waiter was a bit weird -- he took an order next to me and then skipped right round the table! Anyway, the food was fine - my Vineyard Croissant was tasty if not very filling. The Breakfast...

Who would imagine that a wine farm would serve the best pizza? The slow roast lamb and aubergine pizza comprised large chunks of roast lamb and brinjal, not just thin slices, and I cannot remember having a better pizza - ever! My wife had the rich oxtail which was also delicious.

We decided to share a pizza (The Slow cooked Lamb pizza) which sounds quite strange for a pizza topping but is truly delicious, and to accompany we shared the Ceasar salad. they split everything for us which was really nice, so didn't involve passing food across the table.

The Food at the restaurant is good; however, we found the wine estate to be very commercial and lacking a personal touch. The cellars tour we did was not very good and the wines were average.
