Peter Tudge, the ultimate ‘Mein Host’, called this ‘his office’ and many guests remember this convivial pub with fond memories of laughter and fun, of great debates putting the world to rights (and not so fond memories of extreme hangovers)!

It was dubbed the University of Life by a great friend and Peter was indeed a tremendous host, wit and raconteur, able to converse on just about any subject under the sun and long into the night!

Today, it remains a convivial meeting place where people gather, swap stories, make new acquaintances and enjoy the ambiance of a well-established hostelry.

All were outstanding - Oswald the most helpful and versatile, from our tv to the drinks! Jessica was also super. It has been ages since we stayed in Grahamstown but have often driven through - we had forgotten what a beautiful and friendly city it is - thanks to all!

I really enjoyed it (my stay), a good alternative to a hotel.

The staff were attentive, welcoming and the best we've had. Thank you for a great experience. We will miss the food! Amazing job everyone. Wonderful time
