Approximately two years ago, Dan and Clare, a keen motorcyclist and at that
time a hectic city slicker, spotted a patch of land 15km before Barrydale on
Route 62. He found it to be the ideal place to start up his business, a bikerís
theme stopover pub Ďn grub including accommodation with natureís tranquility at
your back door.
They started building the pub in April 2006 and in December 2006 the Karoo
Saloon (the name was only decided upon two weeks before the official opening)
opened their doors to the public.
They are currently busy completing the accommodation facilities which will bring
it to a total of 24 people to sleepover.
Their menu speaks of simplicity but taste is what itís all about Ė pizzas,
toasties and a great breakfast. They also cater for private parties like
birthdays, reunions and with their outside braai facilities you can even ask for
a bubble bath swimming pool.
Dan and Clare also have an extended family, who keep the kids entertained like
their two Potbelly pigs, Pork & Chop, their parrot Scrumps and their Bull
Terrier, Titan, but nicknamed by BikeSA as Spud McKenzie (December 2006 issue).
In 2005 Dan and Clare also initiated the Slangkop Rally in conjunction with
Lionís International to raise funds for the underprivileged.
