Loved the burgers here - we went back for seconds. Generously filled with oversized offerings, and washed down with an icy cold beer. Perfect!

Everything on LH is pricey but this shop takes the biscuit! Go to Joys instead..we reckoned every item was at least 50c more...and that adds up. Not as much choice for fresh or grocery items. It is central so convenient when you need something quickly...More

Hi, I'm actually not enquiring about the restaurant but rather about care hire. I heard that Thompsons may also do car hire, is that correct? If so can you please let me know if there is anything available between 20 - 27th November and how much. Thank you so much. Grace

Yes they do car hire. Not sure of the prices though. Lord Howe is a small island and if you can, bike riding is the go
