The Country Bumpkin is the perfect one stop venue that can accommodate both ceremony and reception in a beautiful natural environment. We can develop a tailor-made wedding / anniversary / birthday party or any other function to suit your style and budget. Please contact us for a personalised quote.

The venue has ample parking and is wheelchair friendly. There is also a large garden with a jungle gym, sandpit, swings and bike track for the kids.


The garden area features a covered patio area large enough to seat about 60 guests. The rest of the garden seats an additional 60 guests. It is very well protected from both north-easterly and south-westerly breezes. The rest of the restaurant is divided into two dining areas - namely the main restaurant which seats approximately 70 guests and the sunroom which accommodates 40 guests comfortably.


There are multiple opportunities for wedding pictures to be taken in and around the garden and nursery.


There are many good guest houses in East London within close proximity to The Country Bumpkin (less than 5km) and we will gladly supply prospective wedding guests with a list of accommodation in the area.


We can do a buffet for a minimum of 30 people.

If you are ordering off the platter and pizza menus we require a minimum spend on catering of R62 per person (excluding beverages).

If you bring your own cake / cupcakes we charge a “cakeage” fee of R45.

The Bumpkin is fully licenced and offers a reasonably-priced wine list and a selection of local craft beers. A full bar is available. If you would like to bring your own wine or champagne, we charge a corkage fee of R45 per bottle.


A venue hire fee is applicable if you require the entire restaurant for your function. This venue hire is dependent on the date booked and on the value of the catering ordered and the number of guests attending. If the guests and catering numbers go down, the venue fee goes up if the whole restaurant is still required. In off-peak season the venue hire will be lower than during peak season.

If only a section of the restaurant or outside area is required for your function, then no venue hire fee is applicable. We will then only charge for the catering and drinks ordered (minimum catering spend: R62 per person, excluding beverages).

Please chat to us regarding your requirements so that we can give you a personalised quote.


For bookings of ten or more guests a 10% service charge is added to the final food and beverage bill.


We require a 50% deposit to in order to secure your booking.
