What a lovely cosy bar ....... and the food ..... I had eisbein and it was simply amazing and it was huge, I took at least half back for the better half and then Jessica the furchild enjoyed the bones ...... The service was quick...and very efficient, and this in a full venue on a super wet Saturday afternoon, with music provided by Blarney and Sons!More

Don’t visit this venue for a romantic meal but do visit here for good food and buzzing atmosphere. The eisbein is my favouriite and potato skins a yummy starter. Curries always good as are their pies and baskets.

We came here for a n early dinner and were quickly served. The steak was done to perfection and the chips were celestial! Prices are typical mid-range and the choice is varied but not huge so suit people who like family burger style fare. The...pub can be a bit noisy but the restaurant section next to the old steam loco (the site is a converted railway station) is more pleasant and open.More

In these challenging times it's nice to still be able to eat out where staff are friendly, very cautious with Covid rules, and constantly sanitizing surroundings, with a smile on their faces. Prices are a bit high, but portions are very good.

Popular with the locals and the vibe is great. More of a pub vibe than a restaurant and the old train station feeling feeds into the relaxed vibe. Food is really good but don’t bother with prawns. Surprisingly disappointing. Everything else on the menu is...great ..... except ask for ice cream to be replaced with cream when it comes to desserts. Don’t understand why they can’t get that right. Specials in the week mean you need to phone ahead to book a table. Service is really not good. You will be raising your hand regularly but don’t let that put you off. Still worth it .....although that was the the main reason why I knocked it down to 4 stars.More

The very best place to visit on a Thursday. Great value, attentive staff, efficient service & great food - cozy on rainy days & a great outside area when the sun is shining. Worth a visit on any day, even if it's just for a...drink - I think it's like the South African version of "Cheers".More

Had a lunch with a friend and really enjoyed my time there. Had the chicken strips pan which was really good and reasonable in price. Drink prices were also reasonable and great service. Perfect place to socialize

We visited Stokers Arms last night and we shocked at how dirty it was. Service was shocking!!! Our table was wiped with toilet paper!!! The mens toilet floor was a river of urine which was then mopped up with an equally urine soaked mop. Food...quality has also deteriorated. We will not be back. Goodbye Stokers and good luck.More

Lovely setting and a great place to hang out on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Younger vibe in the evenings with live music sometimes. Novelty to book a table or function in the train coach. Unfortunately food and drinks are expensive and the service is not...great.More

Parking is not what I expect what it should be! Staff friendly - choice of beer "nice". Food slow & mediocre. Nice seating and station building is well worth a visit.

Stokers Arms is my favourite restaurant in Natal! It isn’t a five star dining experience by any stretch of the imagination but is a very relaxed environment and the food is to DIE for! Do yourself a favour and order the Eisbein! Don’t expect top...class service either. Just great food in a chilled environment !More

My husband and I popped in for dinner on a Thursday night and ordered steak. The vibe wasn't great, the service was good but the food was not worth waiting for.
