Ronald Mustafa Ponsenby McGraff is the Toad and created his favourite pub with his business partners, Bobby Skinstad (a kind of famous ex Springbok rugby captain), Paul & Lindi le Roux (they own a little spot next door called Cafe Roux) and Dougie Boyes (Surfer boy and ex chartered accountant). The concept was to open the kind of place they would all like to visit - a relaxed country pub – hence the Toad in the Village was born.
“The Toad” as it is affectionately known epitomises a family restaurant- not only is it kid friendly with a fabulous area outside with grass for kids but the food is extremely good pub fare including pizzas to die for! We think you’ll like it!
The Toad encourages as much shoulder rubbing as necessary and will configure seating arrangements to your desire. Noordhoek Farm Village also has a large outside grassed area where kids can throw a ball or just have fun on the grass and the jungle gym and playground are well secured for the smaller ones within the safe surroundings of the village. The Toad is not a fan of the shopping mall experience so this is about as far removed as you can get from that!
And when it comes to food and drink The Toad knows what he and his mates want, so they made a menu suitable for all. The Toad is well known for extremely good pub fare and extensive range of draft beer and other beverages- try the Toad lager for example- a Mitchell’s micro brewery beer named after endangered Western Leopard Toad Ronald Mustafa Ponsenby McGraff.
Ronald is a central feature in this county pub – he can be found in photographs with the queen and Nelson Mandela. His pictures and life story adorn the stairwells at the Toad – read about his adventures tracking lions in the Serenegeti and being a guest of honour at Prince Charles and Lady Di’s Royal Wedding
