About The Conservatory

This sophisticated, all-day dining option at The Cellars-Hohenort is a triumphant display of great quality produce unified on a plate to signify the best of comfort food.

Fresh produce from the gardens are incorporated into the seasonal menu of The Conservatory, while traditional classics and even what was Liz McGrath’s own recipes make an appearance.

​The Conservatory is built around a 200-year-old oak tree, its enormous girth displayed in an elegant glass frame, and its proud branches stretching out above the diners.

Views over the renowned Table Mountain and the camphor trees that lie at its foot form the backdrop for this restaurant. Comfortable ambience and attention to detail complement the varied menu, a reflection itself of the diverse culinary team behind The Conservatory.

I was disappointed in finding your Conservatory not being as accessible to disabled patrons as it should have been. You have a beautiful ramp alongside the steps leading to the entrance but then at the entrance there is a step which someone using a wheelchair would find difficult to navigate on their own. Once inside, there are steps down into the Conservatory and the only alternative for wheelchair users is to go back out through the entrance, all the way up the ramp and through the staff entrance further down which takes you through twists and turns through the kitchen which is definitely not safe for wheelchair users or people using crutches like me. It's also not a dignified way of welcoming your disabled patrons to your establishment.

My clients and I enjoyed the High Tea very much. It’s the best High Tea they ever had. The atmosphere in the wonderful Conservatory was blowing our minds. So fantastic! There’s absolutely nothing you can do better. High Class and strongly recommend.

My colleagues enjoyed our lunch yesterday. Everything I had asked on my booking email I received. The service of the staff was amazing. I would certainly go back to The Conservatory and I would recommend it to friends and family. I'm even thinking of bringing my mother for high tea.

Dear Conservatory, we ordered a picnic for 9 people on Saturday. When opening the baskets we discovered that there was no bread, no butter and no jam. There does not seem to be anyone checking the contents of the baskets. The venue as always is fanatastic.

We hosted an intimate baby shower for 7 people. On arrival we were allowed to set up balloons, a gifts table and scattered decorations with no objection from the staff but a hand of assistance was offered. We definitely felt well taken of from getting the best seating location around the fireplace, to little bits of attention to detail as previously organized. Our mummy to be was surprised with a special “congratulatory” dessert. We took amazing pics inside and outside in their garden. The ambiance was fantastic. Nothing beats their friendly and accommodating staff.

I would recommend some sort of tea cosy. My first cup of tea from the pot was great, but the meat cools fast. Otherwise a fantastic experience. Thank you so much

The staff are the USP .. all else has to be average to be 5* if they make people feel valued!! Food is food , drink is drink, but how people engage with customers is priceless. If needed pls engage with me further.. I have nothing but praise for each and every member of staff with whom I engaged - so says someone who’s travelled extensively, lives in London and has appreciation of the ‘extra genuine mile’

It was such a lovely send off from my sister and her nieces as I left for the UK on Thursday.I'm sorry that I hadn't tried your services before and my sister said that on her niece's birthday in September they will go there for a nice Sunday lunch.
