"DINE ON THE TRACKS"
In 1902 the small farming village of Bot River was brought to life by the building of a railway line between Cape Town and Bredarsdorp but once the N2 was built and road transport became popular the line`s
usefulness diminished. Today, trains only arrive at Bot River at holiday times and on special occasions.
Bit you don`t need to be in a train to enjoy Bot River`s most popular rail side attraction, " THE SHUNTIN SHED"
Originally a railway siding where goods from trains would then be transported off to neighbouring towns on trucks. The SHUNTIN SHED is now a cozy restaurant and pub that is frequently visited by the residents and farmers, tourists and bikers and classic car clubs alike.
The quirky railway decor including railroad lanterns and the original train seats make for a nostalgic experience of days gone by.
There is seating for approx 100 people on comfy couches, a fireplace, and a warm and friendly atmosphere. Sitting outside one has beautiful views across the valley and mountains and wheat fields and seeing the original railway line winding through the valley and with some luck experience the rumbling of the goods train passing through.
The SHUNTIN SHED has a "local is Lekker" policy
and use mostly organic ingredients from local farms for the tasty meals on their wide variety menu.
We at the SHUNTIN SHED are very proud of our
establishment, we take exceptional pride in our wood fired, thin base, hand rolled pizzas.
We also include fine diner food with a variety from homemade pie`s to pimped up burgers, served with delicious hand cut potato wedges.
Bring your family, your friends, the farmer next door and your dog ( yes they are pet-friendly too ) to the
best little GEM in town.

Included are 2 storerooms on the opposite side of the tracks as well.
