About Adams Outpost Restaurant

Adams Outpost Restaurant and Tea Garden is a traveller’s answer to his pangs of hunger combined with an earnest desire to enjoy the surrounding scenery. Situated in Eshowe, the oldest European settlement in Zululand, this restaurant is a delight for just about anyone to experience. The history and culture here is tangible, and the beautiful backdrops close to perfect.

Adams Outpost Restaurant is situated in the Fort Nongqayi Museum Village, in a homestead that dates back to 1887. This building was constructed by Alfred Adams, the first trader and military purveyor in Eshowe. Over the years, the homestead, originally called Norwood, was host to many dignitaries and well-known members of the elite that had the privilege of visiting South Africa. The most famous story, of course, is that of Prince Edward dancing on the dining room table in 1925.

While such behaviour may be frowned upon in today’s restaurant, there certainly is a lot of fun to be had here. In addition to the restaurant and tea garden, there is the Fort Nongqayi Museum Village and the Vukani Zulu Cultural Museum. Both of these places tell fascinating accounts of the South Africa of yesteryear, and the role it played in shaping this multi-faceted country today.

In addition to full-bodied coffees and rich cappuccinos, the menu includes fabulous favourites like stuffed brown mushrooms, smoked salmon salad with wasabi soy dressing, several salads, a range of breakfasts (including the traditional bacon and eggs, and fluffy omelettes), scones with fresh cream and strawberry jam, Thai chicken breast, beef fillet, spare ribs, curry of the day, calamari, fish, and different snack baskets and platters. The portion sizes are known to be generous. Sweets and freshly baked goods are irresistible too.

The outdoor seating area is a fantastic feature as it invites diners and visitors to relax and enjoy the beauty of KwaZulu-Natal with little else weighing on their minds.
