The Klein Karoo Gourmand Award winning restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and serves great country food with a Klein Karoo twist. The seasonally influenced A La Carte Menu features authentic Klein Karoo dishes including a few signature dishes such as Karoo Lamb Chops, Lamb/Ostrich Casseroles or the famous Karoo Lamb and Venison Pies. Guests will find a comprehensive wine list - winner of the Diners Club Wine List Diamond Award ! - offering quality wines from the Klein Karoo region. The hotel is a member of the international food guild Chaine des Rotisseurs and has established itself as one of the most popular lunch stops for travellers on the Route 62, offering a true Klein Karoo food & wine experience.

Guests love sharing a drink at the bar which is still the social heart of the village, and has been since 1888. There is often live music evenings in the bar that attract a small, diverse, friendly crowd of young and old.
