Nostalgic with an African flair, Nguni is located in one of Plett’s oldest buildings - an original dairy dating back over a hundred years. Nguni’s African menu is a reflection of traditional selections like Bobotie, game, biltong, springbok, Karoo lamb, ostrich and other local favourites.

With its beautiful sunny veranda or eclectic African interior with its original wood-burning stove, the Nguni Girls provide customers with a unique setting and superb menu.

A true taste of the Cape!

Susie and Neill Ovenstone proudly present The White House, which is situated on one of Plett’s oldest properties and superbly showcases the historical element to the town. The simple Cape style of the buildings echoes the form of the original 100 year old cottage, and is complemented by the gracefully contemporary interiors.

The venue, or “White House” as it has become known, has been designed to accommodate a range of special occasions such as weddings, birthday parties and conferences.

In addition to this, the sprung floor makes the venue ideal for ballet performances, contemporary dance and theatre.

The courtyard is the perfect meeting place for guests before the function starts and the proximity of the Nguni restaurant, which faces onto the same courtyard, makes for a very convenient catering facility. The White House is fully licensed, while Nguni’s two top chef’s (with 15 years experience between them), are able to meet all banqueting requirements.


The White House was designed with theatre in mind and the stage, which is normally 4.8 metres deep and 7.2 metres wide, can be increased in width to 9.6 metres. A lighting rig as well as a sound system is installed. The acoustics are very good and have been attested to by not only the actors we have had perform for us, but also by the professional opera singers we have had the privilege of hosting.


The White House is ideally located in the middle of town, but at the same time is able to host conferences within a quiet environment, and offers an adjacent courtyard where teas, drinks and lunches can be served. Nguni Restaurant is on the premises and its experienced owners and chefs, Jacqui and Natalie, will take care of all catering needs.

Conferences that have been held here encompass a wide range of corporate entities. The design and style of the venue adds substance to the occasion, which is much appreciated by not only the organizers of the function, but also the participants, making for increased productivity. The venue will accommodate 180 people seated cinema style and audio-visual equipment can be hired locally.


The White House with its simple Cape barn style is the perfect choice for a wedding venue in Plettenberg Bay. Not only is it conveniently located in the centre of town, making access easy and safe from a driving point of view, especially after dark, but its style, space and ambience will add something special to any wedding. The White House is a truly unique venue which will ensure that the bride and groom, in addition to all the guests, will be left with very happy memories of a special day.

The venue comfortably hosts any wedding from 60 -180 guests and can be decorated in a variety of ways, being the perfect backdrop for either a modern or vintage style wedding. Susie Ovenstone's Old House Shop is the perfect place to set up your wedding registry. Your guests need look no further for a fabulous variety of quality gifts, for every area of your home. Tie this in to the wedding venue at The White House, and planning your wedding will be a lot easier than you think!

Amongst other things, we offer:

- a choice of live or DJ-managed music
- a flower and décor stylist
- a co-ordination service
- on-site caterers and a fully licensed bar
- an excellent staff team
- a nursery school with child minders for little ones that have traveled from afar
