Lions head food is fabulous. Full of flavour. Their beef brisket is mouth watering. I find the food pricey. But the taste of the food an the awesome service make up for it!! You definetily want to try this place out!

We went as a group without a booking but there was no problem finding us a space. The atmosphere was great and the beer selection huge - lots of types of beer with some interesting features brews. The food was very good with an extensive menu of pub food.

My family and I came in for brunch on Sunday and all agreed we'd definitely be back. All the food was amazing but the Pulled pork and also the sausage Benny's were huge hits! The staff were very friendly and knowledgable. Well done!

Went in on a Wednesday for chicken wins, deep fried pickle chips, and nachos. Awesome food, great micro beer and friendly service. Like the idea of the outside fire pit. Definitely will return.

Went with a group of 6 people. We all ordered steak and it was properly cooked for all of us. Great tasting steak. Beer was fantastic. Great service and price was reasonable. Would definitely eat here again. Pub atmosphere for those expecting something different.

We were out on the bikes the other day and stopped here on our way back from our ride up the lake. We sat outside on the front patio and were pretty much on our own out there. I guess when you ride around on a motorcycle you used to the cooler weather. There was a large fire pit and... More

We stopped by for lunch recently. I found the food okay. The pub itself is dark and not really a great atmosphere unless you are there to be...in a bar. I hear they get great bands but overall, I wasn't that wowed

Hello, Thank you for visiting our Craft beer Smokehouse pub. I hope you visit us again. I have some suggestions to improve your visit.
