"Tumble Downs never Disappoints"

If you are looking for a special venue in the Midlands to enjoy good food in the company of friends and family Tumble Downs Café & Restaurant is ideally suited for you. Situated only 8 kms outside of Howick on the Currys Post Road, Tumble Downs is a newly opened family restaurant with access directly off the tar road. The country lifestyle of the Midlands is filled with pure simplicity and, at Tumble Downs, you are able to sit back and enjoy the simple, tranquil pleasures of this unspoilt countryside.

On the property of an original stud farm owner-managers Werner and Michele Jacobs have successfully succeeded in transforming a once run down stable block into a comfortable café & restaurant with a warm and friendly atmosphere. Werner and Michele are not new to the Midlands having lived and worked in the Howick area for many years. With passion and determination to create a lifestyle for themselves and their three young children they have returned having spent the last 9 years running a fully catered game lodge where they built a reputation for friendliness, hospitality and fine cuisine. A reputation that they work hard to continue in this their newest venture.

Tumble Downs offers a full a la carte menu with an interesting range of freshly prepared meals for breakfasts, teas and lunches with a totally separate menu offered on Friday and Saturday nights for dinners. In addition, the restaurant’s Specials Board, which changes on a weekly if not more regular basis, adds additional depth and further options to what is already a comprehensive menu. So if it is teas under the shade of the trees, lunch on the veranda, sundowners on the wooden deck or dinner under the stars guests are always able to simply sit and enjoy quality food in breathtaking panoramic views of the Kamberg and Karkloof Valley. For the chilly Midlands weather what more could one ask for than homemade soup and freshly baked bread indoors in the warmth of a cosy fire or enjoying a mug a steaming Hot Chocolate cuddled up on the sofas of the restaurant’s lounges.

Tumble Downs is family friendly and the ideal place to stop and enjoy a meal en route to or having already explored some of the other attractions in the Currys Post and Karkloof areas. Children are most welcome, and the unrestricted freedom of the lawns and play area will encourage them to burn off some of the excess energy before sitting down to enjoy a tasty meal off the kiddie menu. Mid week, Tumble Downs also offers pensioners discounts on all main meals ordered for the older folk. Why not take the scenic route out of Howick and allow yourself to be spoilt with great hospitality and personal attention?

With unlimited potential Tumble Downs is also ideally suited for corporate meals, private functions and small weddings. Now boasting its newly built pub area, the restaurant is now more than ever able successfully serve to the needs of its dining patrons.

Offering a delicate blend of stunning scenery, fine cuisine and the warmth of country hospitality Tumble Downs is an experience not to be missed!
