After a superb drive through the pass it was a very rewarding opportunity to drink from the same pub that was once visited by Clint Eastwood.Little is known of the Clint's visit to this cozy little place as he transited through a decade ago on...business. Few people knew who he was and he is said to have spoken with the locals enjoying their beer. It was a special treat for me to seat in the same chair. What a great time .... do not miss this place with all the resemblances to the Saloon Scene of Good the Bad and Ugly Movie with Clint. On your way through the pass stop and have a drink.More

A stop for lunch on a cool and overcast day, after experiencing the spectacular Bains Kloof Pass. The venue rather down market and seriously in need of some TLC. They have had a bad fire there with some buildings destroyed. The serving staff were willing,...if a little disorganised (maybe overwhelmed by the group). The limited menu suits the type of venue. The "hot" food was passable, but mostly cold and some waited a long time. Prices good.More

After a scenic drive over the Bains kloofpass we decided to pop in for a quick snack in the form of a pizza and burger with coffee. The bush pub is located nearly at the end of the pass. The pizza was fine but the...patty for the burger was on the dry side, but the cheese made up for it. This is a bikers haven over weekends and very popular.More

If your looking for a down to earth spot with the kids this is sooo perfect. The pizzas were amazing. We went twice and will definitely go back again.

At the foot of the Bainskloof pass, this is a little oasis on a hot day. They are represented as bush style pub but their service is always warm and friendly

after a fantastic drive over the Bains Kloof pass with fantastic scenery and the occasional baboon we came across the Calabash Bush Pub at the end of the pass and were drawn in with the promise of a cool drink on a hot day and...a bathroom break. We weren't disappointed, the spot is lovely with fantastic scenery, the service was friendly and efficient and the bathrooms were clean. A great place to unwind after a long drive or even before starting the drive over the pass. Don't pass by, drop inMore

Visited the Calabash Bush Pub after a long hot week in the Karoo and we weren't disappointed. What a gem! Fabulous views with really good food, cold coke and delightful staff. We'd 100% recommend and will be back if we're ever in the area.
