Attraction details
Owner description: Locals like to tell the story of Ronnie’s Shop, which Ronnie was fixing up to be a farm stand. During construction Ronnie’s friends played a prank on him by painting the word "sex" on his sign. Instead of a farm stand, he left the sign as it was and opened this pub.

“Fun stop on Route 62”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

I had heard about this place before leaving for our trip so we decided to stop by on our way to Cape Town. We were going to have some lunch (small menu but some vegetarian options) however the power was out so we settled for a still cold beer. It is a good place to enjoy a break out on their patio, enjoying the view. We had a look around the bar, snapped a few photos and had a nice chat with Ronnie’s son before continuing on our way.

“Everyone will tell you to stop here. Fair warning.”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

There is some truth in all of the reviews from the excellent to the terrible so you have fair warning as to what to expect if you do stop here. I don't know what the truth is as to the origin of the place, but it is a bit of marketing brilliance and a great stopping place on this route. Yes, the decor of hanging underthings is as much of the character of the place as the throng of bikers enjoying a rest stop and a bite to eat. As a pit stop for a coffee and a trip to the loo it's perfect and then you can say that you have been there.

“Fancy a burger and a beer in the middle of nowhere???”
Reviewed April 18, 2012

If you're travelling the Garden Route just drive it one way on the N2 and return on the R62( Cape Town George or reverse.) Ronnies Sex Shop is just a bar in the middle of nowhere on the Karoo. A beer, a burgher and a toilet with a few anecdotes and funny tales thrown in. Frequented by bikers in the main. If you tell people your going on Route 62 everyone says stop at Ronnies for a beer (His name isn't Ronnie by the way) and that's everyone in the Western Cape. lol.

“A must stop at Route 62”
Reviewed March 21, 2012

In the middle of nowhere. Just stop to have a coffee or a beer and Ronnie will be welcoming you. An awsome place late in the afternoon that deserves to be visited. In the middle of the Klein Karoo, you find all possible characters: the friendly barman, the drunk couple, hot chicks, people that join Ronnie at his table with a beer at hand, the shy couple that seats far from others. A bar full of underwear, and a saloon full of other things that people left: from personal cards to tshirts, caps, etc. Don´t miss the bathrooms and their graffittis.
It´s a must to those travellers that visited the Ukranian Antarctic base Verandsky because they are "sibling" bars.
