Dining in historical restaurants is always a treat when on the road, at Botrivier Hotel, you’ll find our Bellows Restaurant. The town with its interesting transport history, had settlers travelling through the Houw Hoek Valley, over the Hottentots Holland Mountains to get to Botrivier to trade with the local tribes.

The old ox wagon route stretched through the valley to Botrivier and at this encampment people came not only to trade, but also to have their wagon wheels fixed. Here blacksmiths with huge bellows had to mend many a wagon wheel. The fertile valley with its fat cattle had to still hungers too.

In the tradition of the blacksmith, bellows and good food, our Bellows Restaurant with décor and traditional memorabilia from a bygone era, invites you to come and taste local wines and our pork belly ribs, steaks, homemade burgers or order from our light meals menu. We serve Sunday luncheons and we cater for any event or function, no matter how big or small. Please feel free to contact us at to make a booking and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
