The Deck Restaurant offers bistro style dining at Irene Farm. Open 7 days a week for breakfast and lunch, this is a great place to enjoy a lazy day.
Wanting something different to do, my parents, Dave and I headed to Irene Farm in Centurion. This is a working dairy farm and an ideal spot to bring your children. There is plenty to keep them occupied – calves to see, jungle gyms to play on. And antique tractors to clamber over. After browsing through the deli and walking around the grounds, we chose to have lunch at The Deck Restaurant.
The Deck Restaurant
It was a seriously stifling day when we went, and even though the hot menu is worth salivating over, we gave it a miss. Even now, 6 months down the line, there are so many options I could choose from. But given the temperature and the fact we had pastries for breakfast, we all went with something light to eat. I had the house salad (R55) with grilled halloumi (R34) and it was more than enough for lunch. We all enjoyed our meals and found the service to be excellent.
Irene Farm sell their own, raw full cream milk as well as many other food and gourmet items. You can get homemade pies, local honey, eggs and cream, just to name a few of the items for sale. While we were there my mom bought me a pack of lavender and lime candies.
