Karoo Saloon

15km before Barrydale on Route 62,
Barrydale, Western Cape,
South Africa
Telephone: +27 (0)82-787 5981

Approximately two years ago, Willy Doerheit, 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 biker’s theme stopover pub ‘n grub including accommodation with nature’s 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 at approximately R100 per person per night.

Their menu speaks of simplicity but taste is what it’s all about – 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.

Willy and Joan 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 Willy and Joan also initiated the Slangkop Rally in conjunction with Lion’s International to raise funds for the underprivileged.
