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.

“A quirky bar in the middle of nowhere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

We were staying in Barrydale for the weekend and decided to take an afternoon drive to this little bar on the R62. I had last been there about 15 years ago and was pleased to note the extensions that have taken place so as to cater for the enthusiastic patrons. This is an institution and nobody should miss the opportunity by not stopping while travelling this route. We enjoyed sitting on the roof deck and watching the traffic and scenery - there isn't much else to do!

“Ho Hum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

We always stop and we did again this time on Route 62 - as always I was not blown away, very average, quite tacky but you have to give it to the guy who has made something out of nothing - bully for him and I wish him success. He really has become quite an institution, just a little too laid back for me.

“Seeing is believing!!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

You happen upon this place in the middle of nowhere! The story behind this, which may or may be true, is that before the word sex was added, business was poor! This place brings a smile to your face. Stop and have a cool drink!
