This is our 3rd visit and whilst we didn't have quite the same experience due to weather, the food was outstanding, the pate is delicious and creamy, duck and cranberry pie scrumptious and very large. Definitely go when it's sunny and they have a singer,...tops the day off. Staff very friendly but sadly no visit from the manager on duty.More

We came back 3 days in a row due to the excellent vegetarian menu. Although limited it is so well prepared and tasty. It is dog friendly and our waitress even brought our dog a bowl of water. The cool beautiful, shady outside area and...musical entertainment was well worth the drive from Johannesburg.More

We have visited Die Ou Pastorie before and this time I have to tell people of this awesome country style restaurant in Skeerpoort. It is set in a beautiful, tranqual garden with live music in the background. Excellent choice when having lunch with dear friends....Our waiter was very friendly and did not rush us at all. Although the menu is more limited, it was not hard to make an excellent choice. We decided on mains and dessert only. The ladies enjoyed the tender juicy Fillet steak with creamy mushroom sauce and beautiful golden potato wedges and seasonal vegetables. The veggies was still nice and crispy. The gents had the Home made Duck & Cranberry Pie with mulled wine jelly and Beef & Red Wine Pie, with homemade chutney. What a treat and they did not take long to clear their plates. For Dessert, we shared the smooth and silky White Chocolate Creme Brulee and the nuttikrust & honeycomb Nougat Semifreddo. Both desserts were so delisious. The food was fantastic and excellent quality. Definitely value for money. After lunch we strolled through the interesting shop that sells homemade jams, nougat, paste etc. You won't leave empty handed. Booking is essential to avoid dissapointment.More

We returned for lunch and brought the rest of the family. Service = excellent! Atmosphere = peaceful and pleasant sitting outside in the garden under the trees with butterflies fluttering around us. Our meals were superb! Can’t wait to go back again!

The restaurant is situated in a beautifully laid out garden. It serves breakfast, lunch and, Friday and Saturday, dinner. The menu is limited, but each dish is prepared to order. The cooking is really first class and the presentation excellent Food is NOT served in...a hurry, so allow plenty of time. It is worth the wait. There is a well stocked bar and excellent service..As we were thereto stay over on a Tuesday the restaurant was not open in the evening, so they served us a meal on a table in front of our chalet.There is a swimming pool for residents, and a children's play area. The rooms have aircon. and DSTV. There is WIFI in the restaurant and good cellphone coverage. Owners are welcome if their dogs vouch for themMore

The food is absolutely awesome and presented so beautifully that you almost do not want to disturb it. So much effort is put into the presentation and taste of the food. Staff are friendly and venue is in a lovely garden setting.

My husband surprised his Mom & I to a Women’s Day lunch at this wonderful little restaurant in Skeerpoort. Die Ou Pastorie went out of their way to make all women feel special with little gifts of baked biscuits fastened with a pink ribbon and...quote relevant to the day. The food was awesome and to top it all off their live entertainment was brilliant creating a beautiful atmosphere. Stop in the shop to spoil yourself with their specialty of nought inspired treats! This is a ‘come again back’ place and we WILL return!More
