I Love Foodies has always been a proud supporter of The Village Idiot on Loop Street. Indeed, it’s a place we visit all too often for events, birthday parties, group dinners, and casual nights outs. And they’ve just released a new list of specials that run (almost) every day of the week, so if it’s a special you’re after, The Village Idiot has got you covered!

The Village Idiot Specials


There are three amazing deals that run every Tuesday:

  • 2 Mains & 1 Dessert & Drinks for R300: Grab any two mains and one dessert plus a bottle of house wine OR a 1-litre jug of Standard Beer for only R300. The offer runs all day on Tuesdays. And it’s great to combine with the following specials as well.
  • Complimentary Wine Tasting: Visit The Village Idiot for a complimentary wine tasting that runs every Tuesday from 17:00 – 19:00.
  • BOGOGOWFF – This is our favourite name for a special ever. BOGOGOWFF stands for Buy One Get One Glass Of Wine For Free. And it means exactly that. All day on Tuesday!

There are also three amazing offers happening every Wednesday:

  • Pimp Your Gin for R50: Grab a Double G&T and visit the Pimp Your Gin station, where you can add fresh fruit, botanicals, herbs, and spices.
  • Bottomless Wings & Chips for R130: Bottomless chicken wing goodness. Price is per person. As they say, there is no “we” in “wings”.
  • 1-Litre Standard Beer Jug for R80: Enjoy a jug of the Standard Beer Lager, Pilsner, or Mary Jane Ale for only R80.
