Business Information




Once upon-a-time, a lone white rabbit found its home in one of the oldest fishing cottages in Hermanus. Today, the refurbished heritage building is a popular ‘watering-hole’ known as The White Rabbit Pub. 

Clive Gildenhuys took ownership of the pub in December 2018 and warmly welcomes you to join him, and his team, for some local hospitality, great drinks specials and tasty pub fare!

“I’ve been to this pub twice and will definitely go back again when visiting Hermanus. It feels like visiting friends and family for a party. The food is good, the music is good and with regards to their drink menu, they have something that falls into everyone's taste.” Henriette, Hermanus 
“We only went to The White Rabbit Pub for a small drink and ended up visiting each and every day of our holiday in Hermanus. A typical, local pub with locals meeting up to drink, eat and watch sports. We were treated not as guests but as a party of friends. If you are looking for a fashionable boutique bar’, keep on looking, this is a place with real people for real people. We loved it!” Hendrik, Norway 
“Apart from good food (the pulled pork nachos are a must), the staff and owners are amazing and make you feel like part of the family. If you are ever in Hermanus, do pop in for some pub grub and craft beer.” Christina, Hermanus
