Rickety Bridge is an enchanting Franschhoek wine estate that earns its place in the Cape’s cuisine capital. Long favoured for weddings and functions, Rickety Bridge has become synonymous with a mood of understated elegance, personal service and jovial company while the magnificent landscape lends an air of splendour to any occasion. This breathtaking setting is the backdrop for Paulina’s Restaurant.


Take a seat with magnificent mountain and vineyard views and drink in the splendour of the picturesque Franschhoek valley. Taste the celebrated Rickety Bridge wines on leather fireside couches or the sunny deck overlooking the vines, whilst enjoying a delicious lunch. The restaurant can be booked for special occasions and is ideal for any celebration with family and friends.


Stay over in one of the luxurious Manor House rooms, embraced in two centuries of history, and discover one certainty. During every moment spent on this side of the bridge, you won't want to be anywhere else in the world.
