It's easy to miss this restaurant while wandering around the victorian-era village, but take the time to find it. It's excellent. The food is wonderful, the service warm and friendly, and the prices very reasonable.

The Occidental bar is situated inside the parameters of the Big Hole. The service was excellent. You can enjoy the diamond era town feeling whilst having your ice cold drinks. A must stop when visiting Kimberley.

Occidental Bar (beer tasting) and the restaurant are well designed, good fun, well staffed and very enjoyable. The restaurant exceeded my expectation in service, quantity and quality.

Enjoyed the best burger and craft beer after long day on the road from Vryburg. Well worth a visit when visiting the Great Hole.

My friends and I are regulars at the Ox :) whether it be a quick supper to a Sunday lunch. Their food and atmosphere is always lovely.

Love going to the ox on a Sunday. Wonderful vibe at the Big Hole old town. Their burgers are super tasty and pizzas made by Butlers a winner. Yum!

Was in Kimberly on business and ended up here. Ordered the pork belly which was good. Selection of craft beer on tap. Good value and worth a visit! Service was good!
