An 18th Century historic farm, Groote Post is home to Hilda’s Kitchen, one of the Western Cape’s most famous winery restaurants. An easy hour’s drive from Cape Town, the restaurant which is in its 12th year now is easily accessed from the R27, the West Coast Road.
Lovingly restored, the antique filled restaurant is located in the Manor House which is set on a rolling lawn overlooking the cellar with a courtyard area covered by vines. Daytime weddings have become very popular at the farm. The service can be held on the lawn or on the rocks overlooking the Ceremonial Bell. Guests are entertained outdoors and lunch is served in the Manor House. Numerous photo opportunities exist.
We do not charge a venue hire fee and all award winning wines are sold at cellar price which helps when one is working to a budget. We believe we are the only venue not to mark-up their wine prices. Hiring costs are passed on directly to the Client (should this be required), which is dependent on guest numbers and style of wedding expected. A 10% levy will apply and we levy a 10% service fee on the final account.
