Tea Room history

The Kirstenbosch Tea Room was built in 2003 to replace the popular Tea Room built in 1924 and demolished 75 years later, in 1999. Old favourites such as fish and chips and bangers and mash are served with contemporary flair and many new exciting dishes have been added to the extensive menu.
