Bringing your vision to life
Your unique Overberg function
OUR COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS:
Our venue is spacious and with our large veranda, there's plenty of wonderful open country air all around you. Still, we strongly adhere to COVID-19 regulations - for our safety, as well as yours. We ask that you please wear your mask when not sitting at your table, that you practice social distancing and you continue to sanitise frequently during your stay.
We love bringing people together, to celebrate any occasion.
Family and friends are what really matter to us.
Whether it’s a birthday party, an office get-together, a kitchen tea or even a bachelor’s, our function venue can be transformed to meet your needs.

- Wi-Fi for corporate get-togethers
- Coffee and tea during brain breaks
- Seating to facilitate projector presentations
- The best quality meals
- Bar and Wine services

We’ve got lots of ideas to colour your event – with décor and flowers, And we’d be happy to chat to you about your vision for your function.

We can also help with music for your event. Or you can arrange for a live band to bring flair to your day.
No need to rush off at the end of your party: we offer four self-catering cottages for guests to stay over.
And then, as we work with wonderful partners, our team can suggest service providers that we enjoy working with – like photographers, entertainment, florists and more.
Intimate party or a large group? We’re adaptable.
If you’re organising an intimate party, our venue is adapted accordingly (we can also organise a dance floor, should you need one). And if you’re wanting to celebrate with a large group, we set up our beige Bedouin Tent across the lawn in front of the venue.

A botanically inspired birthday
The décor, arranged by Lucia Streicher from The Ivy League, was botanically inspired with vintage undertones, and showcased Zabeth’s love for flowers and gardening.
The Black Oystercatcher Kitchen cooked up a 4 course food tasting inspired menu, starting with a local Nieuwedam Smoked Trout Salad with fresh melon and a basil pesto crème fraiche, followed by a mini ‘roosterkoek’ duo with farm butter, biltong shavings and preserved green figs with brie. The beetroot soup with butternut and sage wontons was served pouring-style at the table.
A pan-fried fillet, roasted cherry tomato and feta stack, topped with the well-known Black Oystercatcher mushroom sauce was served as a main course.
