Even though many of us aren’t totally enamoured by the commercialism of Valentine’s Day, you won’t find too many people who won’t be licking their lips in anticipation when they’re treated to a romantic dinner against a backdrop of true country charm and luxury at Granny Mouse.


Granny Mouse’s Eaves Restaurant is the perfect setting for a romantic dinner in the Midlands and executive culinary artist, Wayland Green, has conjured up an aphrodisiac-inspired menu especially for Valentine’s Day.

Sensual starters include a Goat’s Cheese, Spring Onion and Lentil Bake, Sundried Tomato Ragout, Olive Tapenade and micro herbs – lovingly paired with a Louisevale Rosé.

Up next is a Squid Ink Risotto, Pan Seared Scallops, Paprika Crumbed Calamari Tentacles and Parsley and Lemon Pesto – accompanied by an exotic Velliria Jasmine.

The third course is a lovingly prepared Springbok Carpaccio, Pistachio Cream Cheese, Portabella Mushrooms with Vodka infused Strawberries – paired with Sophie Te’Blanche.

This is followed by the fourth course which includes Grilled Beef Fillet, Sweet Pea Puree, Mixed Mushrooms, Fondant Potato, Crackling with a Port & Red Wine Reduction – with De Toren Delicate as the wine of choice.

Of course, the ultimate end to a fine romantic dinner is dessert which is rich with the ultimate aphrodisiac – chocolate. Our culinary maestro has combined Textures of Chocolate, Dark Chocolate Foam, Ruby Chocolate Ganache, Gold Chocolate Cremeux, Pistachio & Milk Chocolate Soil with a tantalisingly sweet Hartenberg Straw wine.
