About Gooseberries Restaurant

Set in the foothills of the majestic Drakensberg Mountains, Newcastle is a fantastic city to showcase the natural beauty and variety of KwaZulu-Natal. Added to this, it is also the proud home of the Gooseberries Restaurant, where friendly faces and delicious meals are par for the course.

This family restaurant has an ŕ la carte menu that boasts a number of fresh, homemade meals to tempt and tantalise. Friendly service always makes for an extra-special experience in an eatery and is certainly one of the traits of this pretty retreat. Starters, light lunches, moreish mains, and pub-style favourites are all on offer for hungry locals, first-time visitors, or those passing through. These can be savoured in the spacious indoor dining area, which has massive glass windows that allow diners to relax and soak up the view of the KZN countryside. The veranda is also a popular spot for those wanting to get the most out of these breath-taking views.

Gooseberries Restaurant is fully licensed, so visitors can sample some excellent South African wines, as well as ice-cold beers, and a variety of spirits. Of course, there are also non-alcoholic drinks, and comforting coffees and teas available.

The big play area is perfect for little ones with plenty of energy to burn. There are slides, swings, monkey bars, and even a trampoline; all set against the gorgeous scenery of the Drakensberg. This area is home to plenty of wildlife, and diners may spot some of the furry and feathered friends nearby.

The private lounge at Gooseberries Restaurant is ideal for private functions and special occasions, when guests want to create an intimate setting. If desired, outside catering may be arranged prior to the event.

Gooseberries Restaurant is open from Monday to Saturday, and is the place where memories are made. Book ahead of time to avoid disappointment.

Newcastle is just over three hours from Johannesburg and almost four hours from Durban.
