Paddagang Restaurant and Wine House

23 Church Street Tulbagh
Tulbagh, Western Cape
Legend has it that in years gone by, during mating season, the frogs went down this path to the river were they would mate, hence the name Paddagang - "frog's passage" (translated directly from Afrikaans). The property has changed hands several times. It is still remembered that the inhabitants had to flee when the river banks overflowed and floaded the house. As early as 1783, the Roodezand Church Council approved the building of a wine cellar for the minister. Therefore it was appropriate at the time to install a "taphuis" (Tavern) in Church Street. The approval for the "Taphuis came in 1821 to Ryk Meiring, a grandson of the late Church minister. The magistrate granted the approval for a 12 month period and the "Taphuis" had to comply with a list of conditions to safegaurd the welfare of the community and to insure that the public order was not disturbed.
