Allen designs the Pineapple menu, catering for vegetarians, vegans, guests with gluten or lactose intolerance and other dietary requirements. If you have special concerns please discuss with Allen and she will do her best to make sure you have the food you need.
A range of tasty meals is offered using our home-grown produce as much as possible. Our fruit trees produce mangoes, avocados, lemons, papaw (also known as papaya- a squeeze of lemon or lime helps to bring out the flavour), mulberries, cape gooseberries and the occasional strawberry! The vegetable garden produces lettuce, tomatoes, courgettes, butternut squash, cabbage, onions, garlic, green pepper, eggplant, sweet potato, watermelon while the herb garden outside the kitchen has parsley, thyme, basil, rosemary and mint. All these arrive in season and what we do not have ourselves we usually find in the local markets.
Our honesty bar is in the corner of the living room with a choice of beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks. Roasted groundnuts and wooden serving bowls are available in the bar area. Guests can use the labels provided to mark their bottle of wine. There is a price list and sign-up sheet so that guests can help themselves.
