One of South Africa's grandest colonial mansions, Zwartkoppies Hall, 23 km outside Pretoria, is now a fascinating museum that pays tribute to the genius of its original owner. The Sammy Marks Museum have a lovely restaurant, The Rose Garden.

They offer lunch, dinners, croquet on the lawn, tennis and billiards, parties were all regular events, and there were often no fewer than 30 guests at a time.  They have professional parlourmaids, kitchenmaids, laundry-maids and gardeners, as well as a governess and a cook.

There is a massive stove in the kitchen, with five ovens and 10 hot-plates. It is a testimony to the scale on which the Marks's entertained years ago.

Once you have completed your Museum tour, relax for a while over tea and scones. Tables are under the trees and also on the wide trellised verandah that runs the length of the house, affording splendid views of Bertha's rose garden.

Tuesday - Sunday 09:30 - 16:00
