Im taking my daughter to compete in the SA Du-athlone champs in Bloem and staying over sat/sun night this week at the Urban Hip hotel which is apparently situated pretty centrally. What are the places to see/places to eat and cool pubs etc in the area?

Longhorn Grill must do one of the best steaks in the country and Bains Bush lodge has a pretty cool "bush" pub.

if you are  into museums do not miss the Women's Memorial and Anglo-Boer War Museum.  very nice and informative.  im taking a Rovos Rail tour group there on Thursday.  there is a number of nice places in 2nd avenue - New York restaurant for great steaks.   do not forget die Mystic Boer.... very alternative.....
