historic village

We are situated in the leafy Historic Village in Modderfontein in a Heritage Manor House rich with history. A welcome break from the hustle and bustle of busy Johannesburg, we are only 15 minutes from Sandton and 10 minutes from OR Tambo International Airport.

Young and old are catered for under our famous two Oak trees outside, under the recently renovated covered patio, inside the manor house or on its spacious Veranda. For private functions and corporate events, retreat to the Bedouin Garden Tent behind the restaurant. There is a rustic playground for the youngsters and adult supervision is compulsory. The venue can cater for up to 900 people at a time, but you will never feel crowded as the tables are generously spaced apart. On weekends, we host different musicians that entertain the family crowds as they enjoy the relaxing atmosphere (refer to our Live Music page for the line-up).


Oakes Brew House treat visitors to the best craft coffee. Their premises can be found behind 33 High Street. Our establishment serve the Oakes Brew House coffee on-site and roasted coffee beans are for sale. Ask your waitron when you come visit.
