Dave and Caron



Saxon Lodge offers generous amenities that include:

The Saxon Arms

The Saxon Arms is a cosy, exceptionally well stocked and much enjoyed pub, and Dave’s pride and joy. The pub is the ideal spot to chill after a long day and share stories with new friends whilst sipping on your drink of choice. Specialise in local craft beer, The Saxon Arms has plenty of it ice cold and on tap. If you prefer wine then embark on a tasting of the Overberg’s finest which is kept in stock.

The Saxon Restaurant

The Saxon Restaurant is highly rated by guests and is a convenient choice if you are looking for something a little different! The menus are dynamic and change with the seasonal availability of fresh produce and on Caron's culinary whims. Please note that the lodge will only cater for six or more guests and the booking needs to be confirmed by 13:00 on the day.

The Lounge 

The Lounge has cosy couches just perfect for relaxing with a book or magazine.  A TV is also available to watch your favourite show or sports programme. An indoor fireplace creates a toasty ambience in winter and you may just decide to skip a day of activities to snuggle up and have some recharge time.

The Deck 

The Deck is a great spot to hang out and take in the beautiful views that include Gansbaai's colourful fishing harbour, Walker Bay and the surrounding mountains in the background. Sunsets never fail to inspire or surprise and provide a great backdrop for sundowners and lively conversation. The Deck is the perfect place to watch Southern Right Whales in season.
