We really enjoyed lunch at Tumble Downs. The prawn and chicken curry is to die for and we also tried the pulled pork & sweet corn fritters! Really tasty. The only thing is the wine is pricey so next time we will see if they...More

While there might be many places to eat in the Midlands, there are not many that serve good, honest food that is served in a family owned eatery on a farm. Simple, old world charm where the owner takes a genuine interest in your experience....More

The restaurant is conveniently situated only 8 kms outside of Howick on the Currys Post Road. Approximately 4½ hours from Johannesburg and 1½ hours from Durban. Tastefully decorated yet simply country, this venue is ideal for dining pleasure. The row of glass panelled doors that open out onto the covered veranda echo the buildings stable origins, but inside the ceilings have been raised to give the feeling of great depth and space. Tastefully decorated but remaining true to the country ambience, Tumble Downs has a passion for food and hospitality. The awe-inspiring landscape of the surrounding Kamberg and Karkloof Valley, the unrestricted freedom of its lawns, fine cuisine and true country-style hospitality makes this the ultimate venue.
