The Hound Pub & Bistro
About The Hound Pub & Bistro
On 15 May 2015, the village Henley on Klip awoke to a new bistro in their midst. Serial entrepreneur Mark Gory, aided and abetted by friend Dominique Hafner, countless prayerful relatives, energetic friends and hard-working staff, flung open the doors of THE HOUND BISTRO and PUB, heralding a new epoch of posh but friendly dining, hearty Country repasts, and friendly service to boot! “Henleyites” have faithfully supported us, recommended us, kept us humble, and with the help of friends, travelers, visitors and accidental tourists, we are happy to be celebrating our third year in business. Its all about food, leisure and time out here in the ‘onderdorp’ of our village.
Our Delicious Food
Generous helpings of great country styled and prepared food, wandering hounds, gentle moments and epicurean aha’s abound. Taking time out to savour food cooked from scratch by our talented kitchen brigade, folks are bound to feel things slowing and unwinding, admiring antiquities, swilling interesting wines about in their glasses, and breathing a bit deeper for a time in concert with delicious taste sensations.
Come & Join Us!
THE HOUND BISTRO AND PUB is a 45-minute drive from Johannesburg on the R59, or a mere 20 minutes from Alberton or Vereeniging in the main street (108 Ewelme road) of HENLEY ON KLIP, a lush riparian space just off the exit 27 Henley drive. It is also a great stop en route to the Vaal dam, (Denysville, or Vaal Marina). We welcome families, dogs, business people, tourists, and pretty much anyone in search of great country food, prepared with great enthusiasm, a stop off the hamster wheel of life, and a deep breath before continuing whatever it is that you do. We also offer a monthly food market, a monthly gathering of old car enthusiasts, a monthly jazz konsert, and offer delicious country produce in our HOUND DELI. In the words of the Michelin guide, we are “well worth the detour”. We look forward to welcoming you soon!! Keep up to date with happenings on our Facebook page.
