If you have any questions or would like to book your next function with us, please get in touch – we would love to help you make your next outing or function, a memorable one!



Our restaurant provides the perfect gathering place for the whole family.

Meals are freshly prepared in our kitchen and we serve the most delicious comfort food (also referred to as ‘boerekos’, or in English, ‘farm-food’). We also offer a basic, child-friendly menu for the kids, and our dessert menu is packed with a variety of delicious treats.

Our restaurant is comfy and cozy, and filled with the aroma of delicious and freshly made foods, and joyful sounds of laughter among families.

In winter, our 2 warm and cozy fireplaces create the perfect ambience for those cold winter days, so there is no excuse for hibernating next winter!


Blessed with 7 beautiful grandchildren (in just a short 5 year period), Elrika and Lodewyk Jacobus Lesch (Founders of Nuweplaas) were determined to create a safe and entertaining, play area that any child could only dream of.

The play area at Nuweplaas, boasts a jungle gym, jumping castle, tractor and trailer rides, and an animal farm that children will fall in love with!

There is plenty of open space for kids to run around, and the enclosed and safe environment allows parents the opportunity to sit back, relax and enjoy the peaceful farm environment, that Nuweplaas has to offer.


If you and your family are anything like the ‘Lesch’ family, then you will no doubt fall in love with the irresistible and lip smacking treats on offer at our bakery!

Freshly baked bread, pies, melktert, biscuits and rusks, are just a few of the mouth-watering treats that you can expect to find at the Nuweplaas bakery.


Our in-house shop offers a variety of goods that you would expect to find in a farm stall, only better!

From the traditional, homemade ginger-beer, and chunky jams and chutneys, to an artistic selection of handmade arts-and-crafts, at Nuweplaas you can be sure to find a special treat for the whole family.


We offer guests the choice of an indoor and outdoor area, and our venue provides ample space to accommodate larger functions.

The outdoor braai area is perfect for casual gatherings between family and friends, and our indoor fireplace will help keep you and your guests warm on a chilly winter’s day.

Types of functions, we cater for, include casual family gatherings, kids parties, kitchen teas, and high-teas, stork parties, long-tables, and much more.


Nuweplaas is situated in the scenic countryside of Malmesbury, nearby the Riebeek Valley, and Swartland Wine Route.

The Swartland Region offers a variety of fun things to do including clay pigeon shooting, wine and gin tasting, the Swartland Wine and Olive Route, and the annual Olive Festival in the beautiful Riebeek Valley.
