Treat dad to a lazy brunch or light lunch before the day’s matches

at Winchester Mansions. This seafront hotel’s buffet meal caters to every dad’s

taste with braai food, sushi and breakfast. On arrival each father gets a Sunday

paper and a glass of wine, as well as being serenaded by the Lee Gelderbloem

band. The Italian-styled courtyard is open from 11am to 2pm and children under

12 pay half price. To book, call 021 434 2351 or email


Simonsig Wine Estate is offering a special three-course Father’s

Day menu on Sunday at R275 per person – in addition each father will receive a

dinky bottle of the estate’s Simonsig Adelberg – a lightly oaked red blend of

Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Among the scrumptious items to choose from on the

menu are fillet with mushroom and red wine, butter and malva pudding with

gorgonzola and fig ice cream. Also, each dad gets a gift from the kitchen and a

10% discount on wine purchases on the day. To book, call 021 888 4932.


UShef Cooking School is hosting a special father’s day cook-off.

The great thing about this offer – especially for mothers – is that the cooking

school will tidy up after dad and kids have bonded in the kitchen. After donning

your apron the resident chef offers some tips and then families can get on with

preparing a meal inspired by one of the many teams taking part in the World Cup.

The game will be on live too. Call 011 462 8964 or visit

The posh Monarch boutique hotel in Rosebank is offering a

three-course lunch for dad created by chef Keith Frisley. On the menu, among

cauliflower and capers as well as Rib-eye steak with bone marrow jus and coffee

crème brûleé. To book, call 011 341 2000.
