The Restaurant at Newton Johnson is a modern South African eatery. A space where contemporary and bygone cuisine is combined with relaxed yet precise service. The restaurant showcases local, seasonal produce, bringing a piece of the Overberg to the table.

Kitchen

Eric Bulpitt and his team have a common respect for nature and the produce it offers and, intelligently combine them on the plate. Together they are constantly discovering and sourcing new and forgotten ingredients. Preserving, pickling, fermenting, smoking and open fire cooking embodies their cuisine.

Menu

The kitchen is the place where creativity flows. Menus are concise, allowing for more focus and are constantly evolving with the seasons. There is a sense of freedom as the menus are spontaneously changed.
