SORRY, . . . We are Open!
“LOKAL” in Baardskeerderbos only opens its doors now and then ... actually, hardly ever....
Lokal is a unique pop-up restaurant which opens its doors to the public once a month. The venue is in Baardskeerdersbos which is a tranquil village that is home to an eclectic mix of artists, intertwined with a down-to-earth farming community. Be prepared to set aside a laid back afternoon as you work your way through a four-course set menu prepared with only the freshest and finest local produce, much of which gets grown and processed on the property. This is the time to indulge in all your sensory pleasures with the experience being a symphony of tastes, sights, sounds and the feel of wholesome living. Enjoy an impromptu stroll through the magical forest to visit the ‘Lady of the Forest’ and feel inspired as you while away the afternoon with hosts who have a passion for good food that encompasses a way of life. Booking is of course, essential. Contact Lokal to subscribe to their mailing list and be kept updated about upcoming pop-up dates.

The journey to Lokal weaves its way through more than just the winding BBos (Baardskeerdersbos) road that passes rolling green hills and sleepy farm houses. In fact, inspiration first sprouted on the clifftops in De Kelders where Stanley and Lainy Carpenter’s, Whalesong Lodge stands proudly bathed in champagne air. The couple initially started spending quality time at their property in BBos to create an even balance between work and leisure time. Very soon they began selling sumptuous sandwiches and home baked tarts to visitors exploring the BBos Art Route.
It was on one such Art Route that Stanley and Lainy were reunited with Chef Suzy whom they had previously met at Gaaitjie in Paternoster. The trio enthusiastically decided to join forces and created what has now become one of the most sought after pop-up restaurant experiences in the country.
