This is a "must visit place" if you are in the Bathurst area. A wide variety of meals of above average quality. Comfortable rooms but best of all is the pub and the very friendly locals that frequent it

Friendly, relaxed and welcoming ambience in a historic setting. Garden out at the back, tv lounge, smokers' bar (ugh!), but the verandah gives a good view on passing traffic. Sundays the kitchen closes very early.

Very quirky little place. Friendly staff. Coffee not available all day unless you go back to your room & make sachet coffee there.

Pizza is horrible. Not in anyway authentic or tasty. Definitely more of a pub than a dining experience.

Extremely nice restuarant in the quaint town of Bathurst. We had a breakfast there and was just enough to make us happy. Lovely atmosphere as well with a lot of history behind the name

I have had a few beers and meals in this pub and restaurant over the years. They now also boast with a whiskey corner. This is the oldest running pub in South Africa. May she live long :)

Food and tea were served quickly. Waitress could go to bed earlier so that she is more alert and attentive, hence no tip today!
