Across from and extremely busy service station and busy thoroughfare you enter round the back of the property into lovely garden an oasis in the very hot and dry area of the Eastern Cape. This quirky little restaurant has lost some of it's... More

In the context of what is available in Jhb I would not rate this place above three stars, but compared to what else we experienced in Beaufort West this place is positively fantastic. It's small, but rustically charming with a food menu that should satisfy most. Service was friendly, if not spectacular, and the lamb platter we ordered for the... More

We stayed at Ye Old Thatch, and were pleasantly surprised with this little restaurant on site. The service was warm and attentive. The food was honest and homely. There is also a pub on site, and the drinks are very reasonably priced. I suggest sitting in the garden - a lovely place to enjoy your food while unwinding after a... More

There are not many Restuarants in Beaufort West, so if you stay for a week on business, you have tried them all 3x over! This one were recommended. Been there 3x now. First time they only had one steak left, second and third time the service was very poor. Waited at least an hour for our meals on a very... More

Situated opposite a bustling, frenetic, and somewhat disconcerting taxi rank, this restaurant's private parking provides a welcome welcome respite from this chaos. Ye Old Thatch has heaps of atmosphere. A quaint air-conditioned bar. Tables in the garden offering a relaxed atmosphere under the trees framed by the orange hues of the setting sun. So much potential... The food was very... More

We stayed at ye old thatch during our trip down to Gansbaai. Ye old thatch is a real hidden gem in the desert around Beaufort west.
