What you will find at our Restaurant ...?

The restaurant at Chane Cheese Farm serves a variety of dishes but best of all are the wood-fired oven pizzas. Enjoy something like the Spicy Indian Pizza – cream cheese, dhana, onions and garlic. This delicious vegetarian pizza was inspired by TV Celebrity Chef Reza Mahammad. If hot is your thing best to order a pizza with jalapenos, shredded beef and sweet caramelized onions. Many of the dishes are cheese based and the quality is exceptional. If pizzas don’t fire up the old appetite, then try the extremely tasty and filling home-made hamburgers

Sitting in the restaurant one can hear the chatter and laughter of the children swimming in the pool enjoying life and making new friends. Max, the resident Jack Russel, roams around and takes a bit of time to visit each table, wagging his tail and also enjoying life by the pool.

A handsome rooster walks by, his feathers shining in the Zululand sun. Goats bleat nearby and in the fields the horses graze lazily.  Ou-baas, the attractive African Grey parrot, waits patiently in his cage for someone to say hello.

Indeed, the Chane Cheese Farm and Lodge is a family affair that offers visitors a break-away from the humdrum of a busy life.

This is a must Do ...

This shop is filled with all sorts of goodies, from chocolate to cheese to tea tree and lavender oils.  The organic cheeses are available for tasting and it is a good idea to taste the different cheese flavors before making a purchase.  Love it, and love the curios and the bath salts and the jams.  A delightful selection of chilli pastes and curry sauces, sweet and savory relishes. Lots of trinkets, pens, books and bookmarks, body lotions and soaps fill the shop.  The sights and smells excite the senses and somehow make one feel rather content and happy and ready to indulge.
