Die Slee, Afrikaans for The Sleigh, got its name from the cedarwood sleigh runner on display at the eatery. What looks like an ordinary wooden beam was a piece of 19th century Cederberg engineering – wooden sleighs were long used in the Cederberg as a means of transport, particularly along tracks that were impassable to ox-wagons.
Serving for many years as a doorsill in the old Kromrivier shed the sleigh runner now has its glory returned, being a display piece and the name for the eatery.
From our modest beginnings of serving a milkshake and a toasted sandwich to the far-out off-roading motorcyclist, Die Slee is now equipped with a fine kitchen which uses only the freshest ingredients to provide our guests with top-notch farm style cuisine and light meals.
