Friends recommended Tumble Downs, and they were right to do so! We had a table on the verandah, which was very pleasant. Great food, friendly, knowledgeable, attentive staff, good wine list.

I recommend that you brave the mildly challenging driveway for one of the best meals you'll have in the midlands. Excellent food, great service and a fantastic view.

Had an amazing family lunch at Tumbledowns. Superb food and fantastic service from Kaila. The Corriander Chicken dish was absolutely delicious and the Amarula Pannacotta was a perfect end to an amazing lunch.

The restaurant is conveniently situated only 8 kms outside of Howick on the Currys Post Road. Approximately 4½ hours from Johannesburg and 1½ hours from Durban. Tastefully decorated yet simply country, this venue is ideal for dining pleasure. The row of glass panelled doors that open out onto the covered veranda echo the buildings stable origins, but inside the ceilings have been raised to give the feeling of great depth and space. Tastefully decorated but remaining true to the country ambience, Tumble Downs has a passion for food and hospitality. The awe-inspiring landscape of the surrounding Kamberg and Karkloof Valley, the unrestricted freedom of its lawns, fine cuisine and true country-style hospitality makes this the ultimate venue.
