About Die Ou Pastorie

Die Ou Pastorie is a unique guest house and restaurant situated in Skeerpoort, Magaliesberg. Built around an original 1880’s pastoral home and set in magnificent gardens at the foot of one of the world’s oldest mountain ranges, it is a concept in creative contradiction. At once combining vibrant vintage with eclectic fusion décor, Die Ou Pastorie showcases both cultural tradition and creative flair. Guests are invited to explore the myriad pathways of our garden, interspersed with secluded groves and seated vistas, before delighting in a sumptuous meal served in the original pastor’s home.

The restaurant offers traditional Italian and South African cuisine, cooked slow with a twist, according to the tenets of relaxed eating. Our menu’s are constantly changing to provide diversity to delicious meals. Our Sunday buffets or tailor-made menu’s suit functions of all kinds.

Die Ou Pastorie also offers the ideal environment for a romantic weekend respite from the world at large, or as a country base from which to explore the plethora of historic sites, cultural market places and adventure activities available in the area. According to its ethos, Die Ou Pastorie provides an atmosphere of serenity and consciousness to visitors, through the combination of local produce, vibrant design, culinary excellence and warm, organic hospitality. It is an exercise in living gracefully - a conscious choice


Guests of Die Ou Pastorie are accommodated in eight individually appointed garden suites, all with views of the Magaliesberg Mountains. Each suite follows a unique theme, with funky, mismatching light fittings, materials and décor providing an eccentric yet welcoming ambience. All rooms are en-suite with private balconies, and embody both the serenity and vibrancy of Die Ou Pastorie.


At Die Ou Pastorie, food is a philosophy. Our chefs combine the flavours and diversity of Italian cooking with traditional South African dishes to create a fusion menu that is decadently different. We believe that good food should be cooked slowly, with all produce being sourced locally and seasonally. To this end, Die Ou Pastorie is closely entwined with neighbouring farmers, ensuring that guests experience the full freshness and flavour of our community.

We have also begun and successfully run for 4 years now, the initiative of an ‘edible garden’, with vegetables and herbs of every description (including micro-greens) growing amongst the trees and flowers. We have recently become aligned with Slow Food, an international dining organisation, and have hosted a successful luncheon in their name, with an aim to showcase the food and produce of our community.


Closely in touch with our country’s artistic exuberance, Die Ou Pastorie provides the ideal environment in which to showcase its talent. Musical concerts, art exhibitions, storytelling and performance art take place while guests dine under the trees, absorbing both the intricacies of the show and the tranquil beauty of their surroundings. We have a notable array of our country’s finest performers to visit Die Ou Pastorie including the likes of legendary South African musicians Steve Newman, Shawn Phillips, Dan Patlansky, Greg Georgiades, Josie Fields, Laurie Levine, Arno Carstens and so many more... Enquire with us for dates and performers.


In addition to food served in the restaurant, Die Ou Pastorie also produces a tantalising range of homemade confectionary. From our famous chicken liver pate to a seasonal selection of jams, jellies and chutneys, from breadsticks to biscotti, guests will be able to take a piece of Die Ou Pastorie home. Original fabrics and Pastorie-made furniture designs, in addition to various creations from the wider community are also available.
