country charm

Welcome to
Die Ou Pastorie

Die Ou Pastorie is open again from Thursday to Sunday!  A magical oasis of fauna, flora and countryside indulgence

Die Ou Pastorie is situated on the edge of the Cradle of Humankind, near the foothills of the Magaliesberg mountain range.

An easy 45-minute drive from Johannesburg or Pretoria, and 30-minutes from Lanseria Airport, it is the perfect venue to host weddings, live music performances, corporate lunches and meetings, as well as provide a sanguine space in which to luxuriate on a gentle weekend away in the countryside.

Join us for breakfast or lunch from Thursday to Sunday under the trees.  The perfect placement for a quiet meeting with friends or a focused business meeting.  We also host book clubs, workshops and small celebrations.

We have a large outside area and tables inside next to the fire place.  Ideal for any weather conditions while you enjoy a delicious meal.

Remember, you can also stay over at our Guest House or enjoy a take home treat or frozen meals from our Deli.  We look forward to hosting you.

Die Ou Pastorie was built in the 1880’s as a pastoral home during a time when wild animals roamed the valley; people traveled by ox-wagons and the politics of the day involved the Anglo-Boer Wars.

Our small property lies in the rich, fertile valley of Scheerpoort, named so because it was the last opportunity to shave and ‘clean up’ before arriving in the hub of Pretoria by oxwagon (a 3 day travel).


What People are Saying

A more beautiful and romantic setting for a Valentine’s Sunday lunch is hard to imagine.

The food was both delicious and the presentation beautiful with very helpful and attentive staff. Great place to visit in the Skeerpoort countryside in the valley of the Magalies mountain range. Absolutely delightful, tranquil, tree filled venue with a strong sense of history and beautiful artworks to boot and a very charming hostess.

Great place to stop over

Well preserved South African historical residence, complete with authentic furniture and other household items, like stepping back in time to the 1850s. Rooms are well kept, beds are comfortable.

Lovely little find

Old Country House with a great garden setting for outdoor lunches. We had a late lunch and there was live music which was great. I ate the butter chicken curry, my friends had a beef pie and the chicken strips and chips – all of them were very tasty! Service was good and the waiter made some recommendations.

The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating, but we chose to sit outside under the trees. It is so peaceful and quiet for breakfast, that we just sat there for an hour or two chatting. The breakfast was great and service was fast and friendly.
