I am sure this can be arranged but it would really depend on numbers and the amount of guests we have dining that are not a part of your group. Please note that we only prepare dinner for our in house guests and we do not cater to the public.

Greetings: do you have a menu that you can share? Thank you
Dear Portiavimbayi As dinner is prepared strictly on a request basis we usually decide on the day what we will serve in the evenings. It usually depends on numbers, however, just to give you a rough idea of some of the dishes we offer please see below: Roast Chicken Lamb Shoulder Chops Pork Chops Chicken Casserole Fish (Hake) Chicken Schnitzel Beef Fillet Roast Beef (if dinner numbers are high) All dishes are served with mixed veggies, roast potatoes or rice. We also offer a selection of desserts such a chocolate brownies, apple strudel, chocolate mousse, banana pancakes and of course, ice-cream & chocolate sauce! I hope this information helps? Please let us know if you have any more questions. Kind Regards Kingsmead Guesthouse Management
