The Historic Pig and Whistle Inn makes a unique venue for any sort of function, from weddings to business conferences.


Despite its modest size, the town of Bathurst is a popular choice as a wedding venue. Combining a ceremony held in one of Bathurst’s historical churches with a reception at the Pig and Whistle offers couples an exquisite experience steeped in culture and memorable moments.

With so many wedding venues all over the country, the Historic Pig and Whistle strives to provide a personal and authentic experience for each couple and their guests. The inn can sleep 20 Guests, and has a dedicated honeymoon suite, and we can cater for up to 80 guests for a sit-down meal. 


A conference need not be situated in the heart of the city. Getting away from the urban chaos can be a pleasant way to get one's mind in top form. The Historic Pig and Whistle Inn can provide a quieter environment while still only being a few minutes from both Grahamstown and Port Alfred, and under two hour's drive from both Port Elizabeth and East London.

The Historic Pig and Whistle boasts a conference room that can comfortably seat 25 guests and is equipped with a projector. The hotel can provide accommodation for 20 people and packages including accommodation and meals can be arranged for conferences.


As a party and function venue, the Historic Pig and Whistle has the benefit of being unique and interesting, while also having accommodation for 20 guests. Packages including décor and catering (formal sit-down or cocktail-style) can be arranged, and any event held in the historic inn will not soon be forgotten by your guests.
