I come here often when I am in Lion's Head. The atmosphere is wonderful and the food fantastic. As with many "tourist" towns, some places can get a bad rap or people can be overly critical during the busy season. This is great! You should come here but bare in mind, if it's the summer, be patient. It's worth the... More

We ate dinner here one night on a recent trip to Lions Head. The food was quite good (pub fare - the fish & chips are good), and the service was excellent. It was a night which was very busy, and when speaking with our server she was telling us that they weren't expecting that many people that night. But... More

A lovely and colourful Inn. The manager did a lovely job of making my elderly parents and I feel welcome and treated us very well. The fish dinner was wonderful and a nice view from the patio. Good job! I will go back 😃

The fish and chips and salads were good. We also had some of the Neustadt Scottish style ale, which was excellent. The staff were OK but not friendly. There isn't much of an alternative in Lion's Head, so this seems to be the best place for bar food, but it's only average really.

Today four of us visited this restaurant for supper. The bar is extensive and has a good selection of draught beer. The menu is a bit more limited. Three of our group had the perch dinner on the main menu. The perch itself was delicious, but it was served with only a choice of potato and no vegetable or accompanying... More

After a hike on the Bruce Trail to Lion's Head Lookout, we decided to quench our thirst on the patio at the Lion's Head Inn. We enjoyed our drafts as well as our garden flatbread. Our server Lynda made us feel very welcome and took great care of us!

Everything about our experience here was fabulous. A group of 9 and service was a 10! No eye rolling when we asked for individual bills, food FANTASTIC. Our server even took time to take our picture in front of the restaurant. I will visit here each time I get to Lion's Head!

Ten of us had dinner after a day of hiking. Service was good and informative when we asked for recommendations for our next stop in Wiarton. The waitress volunteered to take our group photo outside.

We had just arrived at the Purple Frog B and B and our host recommended the Lion's Head for a meal. It was a lovely evening, the server really looked after us really well. The food was delicious especially the fish.
