An exploration of South Africa would not be complete without a drink at the oldest continuously licensed pub in the country. The pub is a favourite among locals thanks to its warm, companionable atmosphere, and the fascinating history makes it a popular watering hole for holiday-makers to the Eastern Cape.
The wooden beams, wood-burning fireplace and air force memorabilia decorating the stone walls are a reminder of the colourful story of the pub's considerable lifetime. In the present day, the air conditioning keeps the summer heat out as effectively as the old fireplace has always kept the winter chill at bay, making The Historic Pig and Whistle Inn a year-round sanctuary.
The pub is also equipped with satellite TV so that sports fans can keep up to date with important games in between their exploring and holiday-making.
A recent addition to the pub is the Frontier Bonsmara Whisky Bar, which serves premium whiskies and other spirits. The whisky bar is open at weekends.
