The Historic Pig and Whistle Inn

About the Pig and Whistle

Established in 1832, The Historic Pig and Whistle Inn is the cornerstone attraction of the frontier town of Bathurst and is a South African National Monument, as well as home to the oldest continuously licenced pub in the country. Only a 15-minute drive from the seaside town of Port Alfred (along the R67 to the university town of Grahamstown), a visit to the Pig and Whistle Restaurant is a lovely stop on any day out, and the inn is a perfect spot to use as your base for exploring the area.

The traditional Inn has 10 bedrooms, all lovingly restored and furnished with tasteful antiques. The restaurant is popular among visitors and locals, offering traditional English food and Sunday roasts (which are popular, so booking is recommended), freshly baked cakes and desserts, vegetarian meals, and Mediterranean favourites. The pub's convivial atmosphere has made it a favourite among locals and its tangible history makes it a popular watering hole for holiday-makers.
