We are here after a long day out and it was great! I had the fillet with Camembert and Cranberry whilst my wife had 'fish and chips'. Steak was excellent and just what I needed! There was a great vibe about the place and even some live music when we arrived.

Last week, we drove with a friend for the first time to Hoedspruit to experience the eateries there. It was not easy finding the exact location to cater for our needs and ended up choosing The Hat & Creek. They had a lunch special for Mesh potatoes with mustard and Lamb shank. Yhoooo! What an over powering mustard in that... More

Hat & Creek has two restaurants. One in Palaborwa & one in Hoedspruit. This is not a franchise chain of restaurants which is in my opinion gives them a higher level of quality!
