Our Story

Sprout & Sprocket is a boutique eatery with a difference, and is the long-time dream of Chef Renoir come to life.

With many years’ experience working in some of the best restaurants in the United Kingdom, Dubai and South Africa, Renoir has brought his culinary flair to the valley of Hekpoort, located near the Magaliesburg mountains just an hour’s drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria.

Sprout & Sprocket combines rustic farm surroundings with boutique dining, and boasts a variety of flavours guaranteed to satisfy and delight. We use only fresh, seasonal and local ingredients of the highest quality in our dishes. Imagine de-boned oxtail terrine served with popcorn polenta, fresh beans with almond flakes and a touch of garlic, and smoked tomato cappuccinos. As for dessert, Renoir prides himself on creating the most decadent sweet treats you’ve ever put to your lips. Renoir’s love for food and cooking began at a young age. As a boy, he spent much of his time with his grandpa, Oupa Piet, a man of many talents. In addition to being an expert baker and owner of Tulip Bakery and Confectionery in Roodepoort, Piet also worked skilfully with wood and steel. He passed both of these gifts on to Renoir, whose upcycled artworks are on display and for sale throughout the eatery.

Sprout & Sprocket was launched on Saturday, 7 July 2018, with a five-course lunch menu designed to take you on a culinary adventure. Its carefully selected dishes were only disclosed on arrival. In Renoir’s own words “there should be no envy at my table”  Sprout & Sprocket now offers a delicious tapas menu which offers a variety options from pátés, petite pies to kebabs and mixed berries and roasted nuts Parfait. All the ingredients are fresh and seasonal, diners are can expect not to experience the same meal twice.

Sprout & Sprocket will change its menu regularly, which means that you’re not likely to experience the same meal twice. Together with this wonderful culinary variety, our mission is to create a warm environment that brings family and friends together time and again.

We look forward to welcoming you to Sprout & Sprocket.
