Bar
“Hands down our most favourite restaurant. Especially as the veranda and deck have large shady trees. Also great for a winter's night inside by the fire. Originally the Hoedspruit Railway Station it's decor shows some relics from it's passed history. Consistently good food and the best pizza in town.”
