Breakfast and Dining

Next to the guest house is the Horse and Mill Pub and Restaurant which is an old English-style pub located in the beautiful, restored Coach House with a real horse mill inside. The building was built in 1840 and the horse mill was erected on the farm “Sewenfontein” in 1891. It was brought here to Colesberg in 1977. Both the building and the mill has National Monument status.

Here you can quench your thirst with a draft of any other liquor or cold drink. The restaurant has a variety of dishes on the menu. Karoo Lamb is our specialty so it is worthwhile trying one of our lamb dishes.

English breakfast is served on request.

The Horse and Mill is a perfect stop-over between Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, Johannesburg and Durban.
