      Backsberg near Paarl are flexible and you may even be able to have a meal in their unique vat cellar. Or if the weather is good under the trees in the garden. They are usually packed out on a Sunday for their lamb spit roast. Best roast potatoes

    Not sure how Holden Manz made no.9! Stay away…their picnic basket is a huge ripoff. Just check some of the complaints on their FB page about the picnic basket. Steer clear!
