I came here because my boyfriend had been in the area several times and always goes here. He raved about it and said I would love the beer and food. It was such a great experience - the beer selection is killer and our server was super funny and nice. The food was excellent and every time we are near... More

I love the smoked chicken poutine, and deep fried pickles! It is always a great place to go have a few drinks and socialize. The service is always friendly, and the owners always say Hi to me when I come in.

Stopped in during a business trip. Sat at the bar and was treated with a warm welcome and amazing food. The dry rub chicken wings are amazing. They cook real food with real sauces, none of the generic bulk restaurant style stuff. Heart and Soul going into this place. Can't wait to plan another trip to the Kootenays so I... More

Lion's Head is the perfect place to grab a beer with friends. They have the best selection of local and BC craft beer and have tasting flights if you want to try a bunch. There is always something good on the menu and they have their own BBQ/smoked meat! The atmosphere is laid back and they have books, board games,... More

If you like craft beer, this place has the best selection around. Whether you like lager, ales, stouts, IPA's, or interesting seasonal brews, this is a great place to try out amazing BC craft beer. They have a "beer platter" too, if you can't decide on one. The food selection is delicious. I especially recommend the Three Little Pigs pizza... More

We have been there twice for their to die for eggs benny extravaganza. Many types to choose from, all done well. Hash browns are potato chunks fried and seasoned to perfection. Great selection of craft brews on tap should you wish to enjoy a beer with your benny.

So excited to finally visit this pub. Very unique and lots of character! Great food, amazing people and the absolute best atmosphere. Best service I've had at a pub, ever. Envious of those who live in the area and get to have such a friendly place to go to decompress for the afternoon or evening. 😉

Lions Head Pub was just down the road from our accommodation at Windborne B&B (not quite walking distance in the winter). They had a very good selection of food, nice craft beers, staff very friendly and great pub atmosphere.
