Great Meal in Friendly Surrounding

My wife and I had dinner at the Lion's Head Inn & Restaurant recently while exploring the Bruce Peninsula. As one previous reviewer put it the place is a bit like "taking a step back in time" as it is an old Inn and Pub. The surroundings were not glamorous but clean and tidy.

Really good pub food, but also a full menu with really good selection. The roast beef dinner, complete with Yorkshire pudding, is especially good, when available. nice selection of draught and bottled beer help. Indoor and outdoor seating is available, and we just love the proximity to the beach so we can have a nice stroll after our meal. Fish... More

Went in for a lunchtime drink with a view to eat there in the evening for my birthday. Girls serving were very friendly but one of the customers got shirty because they turned the TV over to see the last 10mins of the Rugby World Cup match, he said if they didn't turn it straight back he would pay up...

We had travelled far and were hungry. The food was good but really just ordinary. The server was pleasant and food was prompt. Maybe a good place for a beer but we were on motorcycles.

Went here with family (adults) on the Labour Day weekend. Prices were very high. Hamburger about $10.00 with fries extra. Son in law had an order of wings and asked for sauce on the side but it came slathered in sauce. Daughter had chicken strips and got only three for over $12.00. Waitress did not look like she wanted to... More

When we walked up to the Inn we noticed open tables on the patio. It was the perfect temperature for a patio dinner. It was Saturday night at about 7:15, so a pleasant surprise to see so many open tables. The server welcoming and seating people immediately tried to sit us in the warm "inside patio". We asked about the... More
