This is the third time we've stopped here, a timely break between Jo'burg and Barberton. The beer is cold, the bar has charming decor (in need of a clean), and the pizza is good. At reception is a No Smoking sign, but from the manageress to the bar-lady and customers, everyone was smoking and the place STINKS. It is illegal in South Africa to smoke in a bar or restaurant, but also inconsiderate. Like breaking wind when someone is eating. Sad for an otherwise good place to stop. If you're a smoker it might be okay.

We went down/up to Mpumalanga for the long weekend in September. The roads were really busy as can be expected for a long weekend . . . We usually stop at Millys just before Machadodorp as it's right on the highway. But man, every bloke and his grannie was stopping there, so I bypassed Millys and popped into Machadaorp town itself (only the very next turn-off, literally 3 minutes from Millys), and found a great wee Pub - The Hog Pub and Grill! It's not big by no means, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in atmosphere and food! Ice cold beers, lovely burgers and toasties and nice staff. I highly recommend getting off the highway and supporting this small entrepreneur. This spot is literally 1 minute off the highway, so it really isn't a major detour to stop there and it has so much more charm than Millys! Do yourselves a favour next time you are going up to Nelspruit or the Kruger Park - Go straight past Millys and take the Machadadorp turnoff - straight up the main drag to the Hog, and then enjoy a cold one! It's really worth it!

Well i do not actually know how the food is, as we have turned off the N4, numerous times to eat there, but never found the Restaurant open!! A huge disappointment, as it is what i do! I EXPLORE THE INTERESTING SPOTS! Maybe next time, you never know.....?

We took a takeaway pizza from here and did not stop but the bar looked fun. We will go again to find out. The pizza was excellent.

Didn’t get to sample the food - too scared of food poisoning! Took about 1min just to get someone’s attention to sit down. Filthy tables and menus so didn’t risk the food if the front of house looks like this then I can only imagine what the kitchen looks like. Won’t be back!!!

We arrived late in the area and all the kitchens where closed. The staff/management helped us very quickly. The food was very good, and the service and conversation was great. Great place to visit while in the area.

We were in Machadodorp overnight and found this place while waking around . Stopped there for lunch which was very tasty and reasonable . Toasted Sarmiento with great chips . Lovely chat with owner Estee. Highly recommended for that overnight stopover meal or drink .

We recently did the 5 day Num Num trail, and after day 4 we were back at the base camp and decided to sneak into Machadodorp for a prepared lunch. We found the Hog Pub & Grill and it was perfect - great atmosphere, friendly staff and of course ice cold beers! A great (and well deserved) break from our hiking meals!

We went on a Saturday night to the bar. Looks like a place where you could easily spend an evening having beers, good food and plenty fun. Interesting decor and nice chats with the locals make for an interesting evening. We didn't have much time so settled on 2 burgers. They both were very good and excellent value for money. A pizza was served elsewhere at the bar and looked delicious. This will become a regular stop when I'm in the area.

You will find The Hog Pub and Grill, two hours from Pretoria, two and a half from Johannesburg, just over an hour out of Nelspruit and less than a kilometer off the N4. It's bright red facade is unmissable as you enter the little town of Machadodorp in the Mpumalanga highveld. Owner managed by Ian and Estie, this cosy establishment is a worthwhile stop for refreshment and a bite to eat if you are en-route between the old eastern Transvaal or Mozambique and Gauteng. Give it a go! Biker friendly.

Coffee was a put off, but the toasted bacon egg and cheese was really good. Lovely pub filled with character.

We heard a rumour that this place has the best burgers in Mpumalanga and thought it would be a good way to celebrate finishing the Num-Num trail. Our thinking was correct and the burgers were truly amazing and excellent value for money. It is actually really worth it to skip Milly's on the N4 and head on to an authentic homemade burger experience!

I was on a business visit to Nkomati Mine and had supper at the Hog Pub and Grill in Machadodorp. The restaurant is situated just 2 km's of the Highway towards Nelspruit I met the owners Estee and Ian Nicholas who really went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The restaurant is warm and rustic with a real ''local'' feel. The menu is good and covers all the favorites.Everything offered on the menu is made from scratch and fresh in the restaurant. The Hog Pub and Grill is ideally suited for Family and friends who wish to have a good hearty meal at value for money prices. If you are a biker it is a great place to visit on a Sunday morning breakfast run.
