Spent a relaxed Saturday afternoon watching the Boks, playing England!!! Great venue for a few beers and good bar menu, much more like a traditional Pub, and great atmosphere, all in all a very enjoyable afternoon..

Nothing fancy here, but good food, generous portions, and the selection of beer is not bad. If you want simple pub food (burgers, pizza, pies etc) this is an excellent spot. The ribs and eisbein are excellent!

We popped into Toad on the Road for a lunch on a very cold day. We ordered a bottle of wine and sparkling water (to make spritzers) The bottle of sparkling water was flat, so it spoiled out spritzers. After calling the manager, he immediately gave us a new bottle of sparkling water and a new bottle of wine. Very... More

Every time I enjoy a meal here, I leave happy. Good service, great meals. Reliable and hearty. The menu is extensive, a good bet for lunch or supper.

Went to watch the Sprinbok v Ireland game and have dinner here, so the place was packed. TV screens all round to enjoy the rugby. Service was great even though it was packed, with our orders being correct and tasty even when under pressure. Varied menu, the Chicken Schnitzel was excellent and friends that had burgers and pizza's said their... More

This is becoming a regular eat out treat. The food is great and the portions are fit for even the largest of appetites - even those on the kiddies menu. Wheelchair accessible inside and outside - a big thumbs up. Lovely setting, appealing decor... and the aromas of freshly baked rolls wafting from the oven, irresistible!

The Toad is one of my favourite local pubs. The pub food is of a very good standard (very, very good pizzas and burgers) and the drinks are reasonably priced. The atmosphere is always good (especially during big sporting events) and the service is friendly.

We stopped here on the way back to Cape Town after visiting a friend in St James. We just got 2 pizzas to takeaway. They were ok but nothing special. I had a quick drink before we left and it really wasn't the kind of place we would go and eat or hang out. They have sport on the TV's... More
