Historic roots brought to life with warm British hospitality & theatrical dining experiences.
With a British Chef and Maître d’Hôtel, The English Grill is quintessentially authentic English, using some of the finest produce from the British Isles. The restaurant showcases traditional service by friendly and knowledgeable staff, and the dining experience is accompanied by an extensive wine list, including a fine selection from Bouchard Finlayson, our vineyard in South Africa. We also have a Champagne trolley, showcasing a selection to choose from.
The menu offers signatures classics, including salads, steaks, desserts and dishes from our Founder and President, Mrs Beatrice Tollman, and all meats are grilled to perfection in our charcoal fired Josper Grill. The glass wall overlooking the pass allows guests to watch some of the action taking place in the kitchen.
The English Grill is proud to hold two AA Rosettes.
Choose from dishes such as our Slow Roasted Rib of Beef from our carving trolley served with a homemade béarnaise sauce and a red wine and shallot jus. To end your meal, an array of tempting desserts await, including a decadent chocolate Bavarois made using our own chocolate, Legend, created in collaboration with Valrhona and served with estate grown crabpear gel, chocolate cremeux, pear and vanilla sorbet and salted chocolate crisp.
