The Irene Dairy Farm, established in 1895, is a picturesque gem that nestles between the sprawling cities of Pretoria and Johannesburg. A visit to this old-style, storybook dairy farm is a must. The Farm boasts two top-class restaurants - The Barn and The Deck. These restaurants are open from 8am to 5pm, 365 days a year.


Across the farm yard from the Dairy Shop, visitors will find The Barn Restaurant, so-called because the restaurant is in a renovated version of one of the original farm barns. The Barn’s breakfast and lunch menu is freshly prepared and complemented by the bountiful breakfast and brunch buffets served here every Saturday and Sunday.

The Barn is open for bookings every day of the year. We recommend booking as far in advance as possible for large parties and special functions.


The Deck Restaurant leads directly off the Dairy Shop, serves a wide range of freshly-made breakfast and lunch options and retains a light, bistro vibe. Stop in for a cup of coffee or relax here on your lunch break and grab an ice-cream cone from the shop on your way out!

Please note that the Irene Dairy restaurants are cashless environments and we accept all major debit and credit cards.
