Our second visit to Occidental after 4 years. The sad part there were only 3 other tables full. They have excellent value and great quality daily specials. The food was well presented, prepared and very tasty. The service was top drawer and we felt very welcome. We had delicious Beef Nachos, Chicken Nachos, Beef Curry. Portions were huge, so we were glad we did not have starters. Highly recommended to visit for lunch whilst at the Big Hole. The ice cold beer was very welcome. Please support them, everyone is struggling in these tough times.

We stayed overnight in Kimberly on a road trip and obviously had to visit the Big Hole. We wanted a light lunch as we had a dinner booking at our guest house. I was a little wary of eating at what looked like it could be a tourist trap, given its location in the Big Hole complex, but decided to take a chance. I ordered the chicken nachos and they were absolutely delicious. If we didn’t have a dinner booking I would have eaten the whole plate - or tried to, as it was a pretty substantial portion! My partner said his fish and chips were really good. We were very impressed. Great value for money.

Great pub and restaurant with old school feeling. A bit hard to find. Park at the Big Hole parking or the Protea hotel and then walk into the old town. Great food and atmosphere.

GReat pub with old school feel. A bit hard to find. You have to park in the Big Hole parking and walk under the road into the old town. Good service and the burger was excellent.

Stayed in Kimberley for a day and had a lovely lunch at the Occidental, lovely fish and chips, and the milkshakes were awesome. The peanut butter and banana I highly recommend.

Bar and grill pub in the Big Hole old-town. Decorated for yesteryear with a modern menu. Try the local craft beer and be sure not to miss out on the house speciality, deep-fried pork belly.

The setting in the historic Big hole complex gives an extra incentive to visit. Add in good food and OK service and you can't go wrong
