Their snack baskets are designed for rugby watchers in mind, including South African favourite snacking foods such as chicken wings, samoosas, pork sausages and spring rolls. You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to seafood dishes and something from the grill – the menu is crammed with an impressive selection of dishes, including lamb shank, Eisbein and fillet.
