Karoo Food | Dining in Somerset East, Eastern Cape
The guesthouse offers the unique experience of enjoying wholesome country cooking, served in a 100 year old church. The old Roman Catholic church - St Francis - was built in 1906, and celebrated its centenary by being christened as lounge, dining room, pub and kitchen. The kitchen was later moved out of the church in order to create more meeting space.
Meals are served daily at 7 pm, except on Saturdays. Dinner orders must be placed before 5:30pm. A menu for these meals is provided on the website as well as in the room folders. Please note that the kitchen is closed on Saturdays.
Breakfast is also served in the church builiding, between 7 am and 9 am from Monday to Saturday and between 8 am and 9 am on Sundays.
Fresh trout is one of our specialities. Please note however, if you would like freshly caught trout for dinner we would need to be advised in advance. As any fisherman knows, weather and fish are not guaranteed! We have added pan fried trout to our menu, as a very worthy second choice option.
At the Angler and Antelope, we also cater for private functions of between 6 and 20 guests. The menu can be anything from finger food to a three course meal, just give us a call to discuss your requirements. The venue is private and therefore perfect for business functions where sensitive information may be discussed. The Angler and Antelope is fully licensed, and has a large malt whisky selection (over 60 now!), as well as a variety of local beer and wine. Bookings must be made in advance for private functions or conferences. Please note that a venue fee will be charged if no accommodation is booked with the Angler and Antelope.
The Angler and Antelope caters for functions of more than 6 people. Please contact us with your requirements.
Whisky tastings can be arranged, so contact us to book a date and time.
