How refreshing!

Today we officially re-open! During our annual winter closure we weren’t resting on our LQF laurels however… The dynamic team from Wonderland Works (the folks behind the whimsical and glam interior of The Bacon Pop-up Bar) joined in with our building company for some refreshing renovations . See a sneak peek below; and please pop in for a visit to see the changes.

A gorgeous new interior for The Garden Room - table for two anyone?

Go for a walk outside; along our new pathways to find a glorious vegetable garden in place of the Herb & Sculpture Garden. This is the view our guests can now enjoy while getting a treatment at our day spa, B.gorgeous.

Bacon and beauty

How does a bacon sandwich followed by a mani and pedi sound? Like heaven. Next door to us you’ll find The Bacon Pop-up Bar, and guess what? The back terrace is a hop-skip-and-a-jump away from our fabulous day spa, B.gorgeous.

So gather the girls for a bacon and bubbly lunch, then head to us for a spoiling. (Plan a special date for when we re-open from 7 July).

Participating guests will enjoy this sumptuous spread with the equally delectable Môreson Chardonnay.
Taking place on the Sunday, this is a once off demonstration—with limited space—tickets can be booked at www.webtickets.co.za.

It’s that time of year again folks; the annual Cook Franschhoek is set to take place on 13 to 15 June: a weekend of interactive and exclusive hands-on demo kitchens and culinary experiences.

It’s always tea time

“It’s always tea time.” said the Mad Hatter to Alice when she stumbled upon his tea-party in Wonderland. Well, dear friends at Le Quartier Français it’s always tea time too.

Lady Bonin Tea

Pull a chair up by the fire in our Lounge Bar and try one of our many Lady Bonin blends – indeed the ‘Purveyor of Magical Infusions’ has created a tea especially for us, ask for the LQF blend.

pastries

What’s tea-time without some treats? We have pastries galore, ready for the eating. And if you haven’t tried them yet, we highly recommend our famous sticky buns.

The Long Tea Table

In the mood for a more languid soirée? Then book our Long Tea Table for an incredible menu of canapés, pastries and savoury bites. Mad hats not included, but you’re welcome to bring your own.

Make tea, not war. ~Monty Python
