Beautiful old house set in a garden under the trees
Type: Restaurant and guesthouse
This beautiful house is situated in Skeerpoort, just 45 minutes ride from Johannesburg. We came through Muldersdrift and Hekpoort, turned right at the t-junction towards Harties.
The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating, but we chose to sit outside under the trees. It is so peaceful and quiet for breakfast, that we just sat there for an hour or two chatting. The breakfast was great and service was fast and friendly.
We came here in July, so it was right in the middle of winter, scarves and jackets to keep warm and the trees were brown. But this place must be beautiful and green in summer. The owner was telling us that they also have live entertainment on most Saturday’ but to check their website for details.
‘Musical concerts, art exhibitions, historical storytelling and performance art take place while guests dine under the trees, absorbing both the intricacies of the show and the tranquil beauty of their surroundings. Notable performers to visit Die Ou Pastorie include legendary South African musicians Steve Newman, Guy Buttery, Arno Carstens, Greg Georgiades and Dan Patlansky.’ – website
