The Historic Pig and Whistle Inn

Pub

An exploration of South Africa would not be complete without a drink at the oldest continuously licensed pub in the country. The pub's warm and welcoming atmosphere has made it a favourite among locals and the fascinating history of the pub makes it a popular watering hole for holiday-makers to the Eastern Cape.

The Historic Pig and Whistle is the oldest continuously licensed pub in the country

The stone walls, wooden beams, wood burning fireplace and air force memorabilia decorating the pub are a reminder of the long history and colourful story of the pub's 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 whisky bar, which serves premium whiskies and other spirits. The whisky bar is open at weekends.
