highly recommended!

The Old Village on Modderfontein Farm (circa 1725) is a unique country retreat with a Restaurant and Pub, located in a magnificent setting on an organic citrus farm outside the village of Citrusdal.

The building that originally housed the Post Office, shop and trading store, from 1858 until 1960, is now a comfortable, smart country restaurant and a warm welcoming pub.

The restaurant, with its original Oregon floors and high beamed ceiling, offers not only elegant dining, but also caters for functions.  A friendly mix of locals and tourists enjoy the seasonal menu and local wines. The front stoep with its stunning views over the valley is a summer treat, while the log fire adds warmth to the historic setting in winter.

The pub, a Victorian/Regency design by William Volbrecht, also sports a large screen television and stocks a wide variety of beers, ciders, liquor and wines. Pub lunches are available at designated times.
