The Homestead building dates from the 1820’s and once served as a farmhouse to supply the garrison in Wynberg. It retains many original features, including internal and external joinery. Providing a unique and Victorian feel to the southern suburbs, The Homestead now provides beautiful indoor & outdoor areas, and full onsite catering from the Food Fanatics team. The venue offers facilities for various occasions such as weddings, product launches, private birthday parties, corporate end years, workshops & meetings, art exhibitions and film/still shoots to name a few.

Had my 50th Ladies Lunch at The Homestead on 19 May 2018. It was everything I had hoped it would be! The food was really delicious and beautifully presented. Shona took my brief and delivered the exact theme I wanted to perfection. She is a gem at organising your event and nothing is too much trouble. Elaine and her team made the most delicious canapés on arrival and a delicious spread served at the table which made it informal and more conversational. Desserts were also very good. The staff were all so helpful and friendly. Highly recommend this venue for your function – Alison Lowndes
