The Emergence of the Cattle Barons

During the American Civil War (while the farmers were away fighting), a new breed of entrepreneur was born, the Cattle Barons. These immensely rich and powerful men, along with their cowboys moved millions of unattended Texan cattle vast distances (under adverse conditions) across the Kansas plains to Railheads for transport to market centres. This helped generate income which stabliized the war-torn Texan economy.


With dynamic partners Greg and Ferdi at the helm, Cattle Baron Somerset West is committed in its quest to ensure that patrons receive the first class service and unsurpassed quality of its grain-fed beef which are synonymous with the Cattle Baron name. The spacious interior offers a separate smoking section for the comfort of patrons, and there is ample parking right on the doorstep. It is an ideal venue for a business lunch, due to its convenient location right in the centre of town, and besides its legendary steaks there are plenty of seafood options


The menu is large so allow plenty of time to decide! Starter recommendations are the Carpaccio, Avocado Ritz (when in season) and the Starter Platter with its mouth watering combination of stuffed mushrooms, deep-fried calamari and venison carpaccio. There are plenty of scrumptious salads and an abundance of seafood. Main course recommendations are the Chateaubriand (a Cattle Baron speciality), the garlic rump, and the chicken cordon bleu. Portions cater for all appetites from a 200 gram fillet , to the 600 gram rump for the ravenously hungry! If you still have room for dessert finish off with a satisfying slice of cheesecake.
