Menu

Time has forced us to keep a large menu of more than fifty dishes of favourites, none of which can be changed without upsetting members of our patronage, these dishes tend to be either classic dishes improved over the years into a balanced satisfying dish or interesting experiments that tickle the South African taste and became popular enough to earn its spot on our menu. This has forced the restaurant somewhat enthusiastically to entertain our culinary curiosity through a list of specials that in all respects could be a full menu itself. Naturally, the traditionally French menu has leaned towards satisfying the South African pallet with a wide selection of red meat including impala, ostrich and kudu as well as a wider selection of fish and seafood.

Our signature dishes have become braised duckling off the bone, with a creamy green peppercorn sauce, flamed in gin and garnished with lychees. Along with a mango and prawn hors d’ oeuvre done with a light curry mayonnaise which is unfortunately only available in season.

At the Coachmans' Inn, we are constantly updating our menu, however please feel free to browse our current menu here, or ask a waiter for the daily specials and recommendations.
