Restaurant

We take pride in using only the finest, farm-fresh local ingredients. We also have a passion for presentation, so don’t be surprised if your delicious pub meal arrives looking like something out of a fine food restaurant! Meals can be enjoyed outside on the veranda overlooking the scenic town square, on the patio in our secluded garden in view of the children’s outdoor play area, or in either of our indoor dining areas with cosy pub and roaring log fires in winter.

Really loved the atmosphere and the food was out of this world, Thanks Country-Inn! Will see you soon on my next trip.

Stopped by the Country-Inn restaurant on my way home from a hunting trip and the fast service was appreciated. Food served hot, drinks served cold. Thanks for the great servise guys!

Hendrik Smith

We stayed at Country-Inn last summer as a family trip and we were amazed by how the staff treat the children – will definitely recommend Country-Inn as a family holiday location

The route between Wakkerstroom and Lüneberg offers some of the most spectacular views that you will see anywhere. Take a packed picnic or stop off at the Whistling Duck’s Coffee shop for traditional German hospitality.
Pony rides, hiking and a lovely kiddies playground awaits you. Why not take the tar road there and the dirt road back for two very different experiences. The drive is about 40 minutes to an hour each way.

Our best kept secret is the bushman paintings which can only be seen by appointment with Chris because they are so precious to us. There are seven Khoi-san rock art shelters in the area, some with up to eighty individual paintings.
