Cooking at the Antbear Guest House

Andrew and Conny have always loved good food. Their passion and dedication to good food is what brought them here an the first place. To live off the land, grow their own vegitables and as far as possible self sufficient. Fresh ingredients are essential, and being able to pick from the organic gardens is a huge advantage. We try to use as much as we can from our own garden and then where possible source great products from the local area.


Our meals are best described as farm-style country cooking. There are no fixed rules and we like to change things often and we dont keep repeating any of our meals. Sometimes its indian food or maybe chicken cordon blue. Or morrocan or mexican or something from South Africa. We make our own pasta from scratch. Soups and stock are things we are particularly good at. And we like to make our own bread, we even grind our own wheat and you will find things like baegels on the menue from time to time.


Dinner is generally a social affair and mostly our guests like to sit together. We have gotten so used to this that we just set the table together these days. However every now an then we have a honeymoon couple who want to spend a romantic evening alone during dinner and yes we spare no effort to making yours a memorable dining experience too. Join us for a pre-dinner drink in the cosy lounge where we always have a few canopies on offer and if its chilly there is a welcoming fire too.


Breakfast is how you like it. There is a selection of cerial and yogurt and fresh friut. Order your eggs any way you wish and bacon and whatever else you would like to build on. We have freshly baked bread, muffins or croissants.

Beer, wine and a limited selection of spirits are available in our bar (guests are welcome to bring their own drinks). We provide fresh herbs and vegetables in season.
