– About the Venue –

Thabela’s venue overlooks the beautiful Dome Valley and consists of three interlinked spaces:

• An Outside Tea Garden Venue that is covered by huge shady trees and is ideal for guests to mingle and enjoy finger food and drinks.
• The ‘Stoep’ Venue, a semi open-air area that is ideal for small functions such as kitchen teas, baby showers or birthday parties.
• The Inside Venue with a long 22-seater wooden table that can be used for intimate dinner parties or small functions. The inside venue has a thatch roof and a huge fireplace which warms it up in winter.

Venue can  host 30 people.

Although interlinked, the three spaces make it possible to separate an area for a function to ensure more privacy.

Seating: The entire venue can seat 100 guests, 60 inside and 40 outside. Our speaker system makes it possible for outside guests to follow all the proceedings and speeches in the inside venue.


We have three scrumptious catering options available:

1. Tea Garden Menu:
Your guests can order meals from the Tea Garden Menu or you can select the meals for the function from the menu. Meals for functions that are scheduled during daytime when the Tea Garden is open, must be pre-ordered.

2. Finger Food:
You can opt for platters with a variety of mouth-watering finger food, ideal for functions where guests mingle and eat simultaneously.

3. Buffet:
You can opt for a sit-down dinner and offer your guests an attractive buffet with tasty meat dishes, colourful veggies and salads as well as delectable dessert options.
