      Another good evening at The Ox.

      I had the steak strips (a 300g rump cut into generous strips). Great quality meat cooked to perfection and a yummy basting. The wifey had the Southern Fried Pork Belly. The batter was crisp and delicious, and the pork juicy and full of flavor.

      All the staff were very friendly. Our waitress knew the menu items and was always close by.

      Great food – Great Service

      Great Food! Great historical atmosphere. Cold Beer. Enough said! The bar is incredible plus the outside music area make for fun with family, friends and business partners.

    6. Marley Gird The Occidental Bar @ The Big Hole Kimberley (The OX)

      Great food and drinks, and definitely a place I would recommend to anyone? the vibe was amazing and the service superb.

    7. Liezl & James The Occidental Bar @ The Big Hole Kimberley (The OX)

      The Ox did not disappoint.

      We had the soup of the day (Minestrone), the pork belly and an Ox Burger.

      The Minestrone Soup was perfect for a cold winters evening and the Pork Belly was melt in the mouth goodness so it is no wonder that is the the most popular dish at The Ox.

      Do yourself a favour and attend an open air concert with local artists at the Ox and enjoy great food and good vibes!!
      Also don’t miss one of their tasting evenings with chefs from around the world,not to throw away their own chef Daniel Williams and his fine dining experiences

    9. Lulu Hugo The Occidental Bar @ The Big Hole Kimberley (The OX)

      “The Ox” is the place to be when looking for excellent food, quality service and live music entertainment!

    11. OZHasie The Occidental Bar @ The Big Hole Kimberley (The OX)

      What a great pub, situated in the Great Hole old town it serves fantastic food and wide variety of local beers and spirits. Try their beers from the Cape Brewing Company. The owner Daniel is friendly and very knowledgeable so be sure to ask him for his recommendation for a bite to eat and other local attractions in the area.

      On a recent Tuesday road-trip to Kimberley (to visit The Big Hole) we decided to have lunch at The Occidental Bar. The atmosphere and food was enjoyable (my husband enjoyed the craft beer especially much – pity there were no cocktails for me to choose from). Later during the same day we returned to The Occidental Bar (probably the best hide-away place in Kimberley) for a SECOND time as we were unable to find any other worthwhile restaurants/bars in Kimberley for a drink/bite to eat before the drive back to Lime Acres, where we were visiting family.

    13. Monique Joseph The Occidental Bar @ The Big Hole Kimberley (The OX)

      Best hide a way place in Kimberley. Loved it. Celebrated a friends farewell after party there. Enjoyed the music, the atmosphere…it was amazing

    14. Mia Donoghue The Occidental Bar @ The Big Hole Kimberley (The OX)

      One of the three best steaks I have eaten in my life. With a wonderful atmosphere and management who truly values good quality and service. My family is hooked.

    16. James Gird The Occidental Bar @ The Big Hole Kimberley (The OX)

      Good food meets local vibes at The Ox.
      We ordered the Beef Pot Pie with a Puff Pastry Lid and a Mushroom Burger.
      The puff pastry was very well executed and the beef yummy and so was the burger.
      Highlights: The best mushroom sauce and crispy chips we’ve had in Kimberley lately.

      Kimberley’s best kept secret? My wife and I had a great lunch and a couple of pints there yesterday. Pork belly followed by frozen peanut butter cheese cake and ice cream. Absolutely loved it. Looking forward to buying some of their new branded tee-shirts on my next visit. Well managed and attentive staff!!!

      “Last trip of holiday visit” – Food was amazing, fresh hot and really tasty! Wide range of beverages although would add milkshakes or fruit juices for kids! Staff need to be more friendlier!!
