Star of the West Pub & Restaurant

North Circular and Barkley Road
West End, Kimberley
Northern Cape

The Star of the West is a national monument, and a great tourism attraction for many around the world, and is equally well known on various continents.

Established around 1870, the Star of the West was originally a corrugated iron shack were thirsty miners paid a tuppence for a beer and a half-a-penny for a glass of wine.

Many myths and legends prevail, of which “Madam” Diamond Lil is the most famous. A picture of her can be seen hanging on the wall. 

Legend has it the bar counter and rich wooden fittings were salvaged and brought to the city by sailors who survived the wreck of their ship, Star of the West, on the West Coast.

In recent years these have been restored and the pub is an excellent place to soak up a little history.

There is an exact replica of the “Star of the West” in Australia.
