A tastebud sensation

With quaint and peaceful surroundings this restaurant not only offers magnificent views of the Valley of a Thousand Hills but promises to delight all your senses.

The comprehensive menu includes breakfasts, pasta, stews, curries, salads, beef and vegetarian burgers and a variety of toasted sandwiches, not to mention a selection of cream scones, cakes and desserts. With the recent addition of Pit Stop Pizza, guests can now also enjoy authentic wood-fired oven Pizza! All the meals are homemade with ingredients purchased, as far as possible, from local sources.

The emphasis is on offering a relaxed dining experience whilst enjoying the natural surroundings and spectacular view, but for those requiring it, Fern Gulley does offer free wi-fi to customers.

Adding that extra touch of magic the restaurant also offers a small nursery where guests are able to purchase a variety of stunning and unique plants. A range of artwork from local artists is displayed in the Craft Shop, adding a vibrant and colourful feel to the restaurant. The sales of these items greatly assist local artists.
