For many of Grahamstown’s students and permanent residents alike, The Rat and Parrot is simply one of the towns more successful watering holes. The sheer amount of time spent within the Rat’s walls by many Grahamstown dwellers attests to the pub’s reputation for good food and drink. Yet for most patrons, their appreciation for the institution goes only so far as the glass they receive their drink in and the plate on which their food arrives. Many customers do not give a second thought to the process involved in producing the food they eat, nor the beverages they consume. Join us as we take a journey to meet the kitchen staff of the Rat and Parrot, and see the faces who are responsible for meeting the dietary needs of customers.
