Bringing your vision to life

Your unique Overberg function

We love bringing people together, to celebrate any occasion.

Family, friends – also colleagues – are what really matter to us.

Whether it’s a birthday party, an office workshop, your company’s Christmas party, a kitchen tea or even a bachelors, our function venue can be transformed to meet your needs.

The venue captures country chic: exposed brickwork, wooden beams, and large glass doors and windows right round the room; surrounded by the expansive Overberg views and landscapes. Because we’re tucked away in the countryside, you can enjoy the privacy you need for an office or company event, away from life’s many distractions. But we can still provide all the amenities you might need, including wi-fi, a speaker’s platform and equipment to host presentations.

Here’s what we’ve got:


  • Seating for up to 200 guests
  • We can add a Bedouin Tent to our function venue 
  • For smaller events, we can ensure a cosy setting in the venue
  • Wi-fi for corporate get-togethers
  • Equipment for presentations
  • Coffee and tea during brain breaks
  • The best quality meals (we can also work with service providers)
  • Bar and wine services
  • Dedicated waiters
  • Cozy log fires during winter
  • Décor to meet your needs
  • And much more…

    How did you hear about us?

    But the best part is the versatility of the venue:

    It can be transformed to meet your specific needs. It’s practical and functional for corporate events, yet creative and fun for parties and other get-togethers. And it forms part of our centuries-old farmstead, so provides wonderful country charm.

    Our team is on hand to guide and help wherever you may need us to make the event as fun and stress-free as possible.

    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 or event.

    Delicious, quality meals: that’s what you can expect from the Black Oystercatcher.

    We offer a variety of options for you – to fit your culinary tastes. Chat to us about your requirements. We can also work with service providers for meal options. 

    And we can help with music for your event. Or you can arrange for a live band or DJ 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.


    Function Inspiration

    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.
