They had no flavour at all.. chips were old. Not impressed... More

We weren't expecting much from the outside but the choice on the menu blew us away. I can wholeheartedly recommend Thunder road, the pork chops were massive and beatifully cooked.

Visited this restaurant to eat dinner. The stuff was friendly. But the food don't like. The baby ribs was much grilled and the sauce trying to be tasty but was not. The fish and chips not tasty. The videos on tv had bad icon. And the tv was to old. And expensive!

Was there after the rugby on Saturday. Very busy so we had to wait for a table for 6 but was well worth it. The chicken wings are great and a must. Had fillet steak which was worth it too. Overall we had a great time the atmosphere and music added to this Resturant too. This Resturant made up for... More
