Owner description: Locals like to tell the story of Ronnie’s Shop, which Ronnie was fixing up to be a farm stand. During construction Ronnie’s friends played a prank on him by painting the word "sex" on his sign. Instead of a farm stand, he left the sign as it was and opened this pub.

“Disappointed!”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

We decided to stop at Ronnie's Sex Shop for a coffee break due to the reviews here & were very disappointed. The guy in the bar was unwelcoming, the coffee ok & the toilets were probably the worst we encountered during almost 3 weeks in SA, no toilet paper & no water for flushing.
The view around the place was the best thing.

“Totally croazy place miles from anywhere”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

WE arrived there on a Saturday afternoon and were given a raucous welcome by the party on the veranda. The pub is adorned with all sorts of underwear hanging from the ceiling and the walls are completely covered in business cards. The area outside of the restrooms is also completely covered with signatures and other writings. the drinks were good and cold!

A nutty place to find on the R62. Fun to go photograph, very local, locals, and friendly staff, butNOT. A place for kids.

“A quirky bar in the middle of nowhere”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

We were staying in Barrydale for the weekend and decided to take an afternoon drive to this little bar on the R62. I had last been there about 15 years ago and was pleased to note the extensions that have taken place so as to cater for the enthusiastic patrons. This is an institution and nobody should miss the opportunity by not stopping while travelling this route. We enjoyed sitting on the roof deck and watching the traffic and scenery - there isn't much else to do!
