Noted as Grahamstown’s village gastro pub, this lively establishment features an array of delectable dishes spilling off the extensive menu.

Start with spicy pan-fried chicken livers followed by an irresistible beef fillet with gooseberry and peppercorn sauce. The delicious butternut-stuffed gnocchi makes for a wonderful vegetarian option.

Featuring the best-requested pizzas in town and the quintessential bangers and mash, The Rat and Parrot quenches the longing for hearty pub food in a dash.

Liven up at The Rat - It’s the favourite watering hole for Rhodes students and many locals so it gets noisy but it serves great pub grub. The vibe is infectious.
