Make it a Valentine's to Remember

– News Article

Let love and romance flourish at The Manor this Valentine’s by treating your loved one to a laid-back picnic or dreamy dinner by candlelight.

Open-air Picnic

The open-air picnic on the lush lawn surrounding The Manor, offered at R460 per basket, features a selection of local cheeses and charcuterie to start, accompanied by olives, pickles, nuts and hummus, with freshly-baked bread rolls. The main course is roasted baby chicken with caramelised new potatoes and a fresh and crisp salad. Enjoy a deliciously decadent chocolate brownie as dessert. The picnic basket serves two adults and includes a bottle of our refreshing Première Cuvée Brut.

Lovely Dinner

Alternatively, opt for a dreamy “journey of flavours” dinner inside The Manor, situated in our historic manor house, or on our stoep, on the evenings of Friday, Saturday and Monday, 12, 13 and 15 February.

On arrival, delight in some delicious bites to stir up your appetite, followed by a starter of smoked salmon roulade with candied orange and pink peppercorn fraiche.

For the main course, select between top-quality beef fillet served with butternut atchar, sumac roasted cauliflower purée, free-range quail egg, Madagascan vanilla butter pommes fondant and pan-tossed spinach; OR fresh line fish fillet with a salt-and-vinegar cigar and a kelp and Parmesan crisp with homemade tartare sauce.

Complete your meal with a dessert of chocolate mint sponge, Baronne poached baby apple, a white chocolate macaroon, and dark chocolate and orange mousse. After-dinner coffee and tea, with Petit Fours, are also included.

This lavish dinner costs R900 per couple, or R450 for a single person (excluding drinks not mentioned above). Pay only R650 per couple, or R325 per person, for the three-course meal, but excluding the bites on arrival and Petit Fours with coffee after the meal. A selection of our fine wines and other beverages are also on offer, at an additional charge.
