“Friendly local pub”
Reviewed 14 December 2013

The decor leaves a bit to be desired but it is a local pub with great food and great atmosphere. Will definitely eat there again next time we visit Addo

“Jill + Annette's trip”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

Food was good, wine was lovely. A bit of an unlikely setting and seemed a bit old fashioned. We had good service.

“Great food, steaks and prices.”
Reviewed 21 October 2013


The food was exceptionally good and the á la carte menu was large. The pub/restaurant had a true atmosphere for both regulars and non regulars.

“Pub Grub”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

With very little in the way of competition, it could be worse! The food we chose was competantly cooked and good value for money - nouvelle cuisine, no. reasonable steak and chips, yes.

“Real local pub food”
Reviewed 29 August 2013 via mobile

This local bar and restaurant really gives an impression of the local good value cuisine, and proved to be hearty food at great prices. The staff were friendly, the setting quiet and had a local welcoming feel. A good place to visit to eat and drink with the locals and ideally located if staying at DungBeetle River Lodge as we were.
