Goat Shed bush bistro & bar Menu

The Goat Shed Bush bistro & bar is a restaurant in Kenton-on-Sea. Open Wednesday to Sunday 12-9 and 7 days a week during high season.



Established in 2000 by the local legend Thaine and Noelle Theolopolis, the Goat Shed is rustic and tranquil. Surrounded by old sneezewood poles, Milkwood and Ngwenya trees, it’s an open and outdoor setting covered by a steel/canvas roof.



Less than 2 km from the Kenton-on-Sea crossroad, located on the Woodlands Cottages & Camping property. The parking is secure with electronic front gates and camera protection in the main area. The beautiful 50 m paved and lit walkway from the parking is amazing.



A jungle gym on the lawn will keep the kids entertained, and guests also have access to the swimming pool.

The licenced bar is set on one side, with a massive kitchen and cold room on the opposite side. The seating area has canvas roll-up curtains that open onto a 20 x 50 m terrace looking out to the bushman’s river mouth. The venue is surrounded by true eastern cape bush with all the riverine pristine flora and fauna. Not to mention the chatter of a variety of birds. For those chilly days, the central fire is lit to keep you cosy.

The facility can host 80 people seated. The equipment for catering purposes are mostly gas and a newly installed solar/battery/inverter system ensures everything stays on when there is loadshedding!

The Goat Shed is the perfect venue to host any function: weddings, parties for any age, funeral gatherings, bridal showers, work parties and more!

Plated meals, snack platters or buffets for up to 80 people can be accommodated in the restaurant; more if a marquee is hired for the large outside lawn area. We are flexible and will do our best to cater to your every wish.

The rustic décor can be left as is, or transformed with draping and lights, additional tables and chairs and an abundance of flowers and greenery to create a magical atmosphere for everyone to enjoy.

With on-site accommodation for around 50 people, guests travelling from far and wide have somewhere close to sleep after the event.
