Great to be back, able to enjoy our favorite gastro pub! We started with the Pretzel which, as always was fantastic. I had the Wagyu burger from the summer menu. A great choice. The full menu us available and so varied I defy anyone to visit and not find something to enjoy!

We really enjoy Thirsty Lion and think the improvements to the menu only add to a great experience. One item my wife always gets is the bacon wrapped prawns. She also likes their calamari. I really like their fish tacos and their SW chicken salad. The service is always good here and when its warm you have the option of sitting outside.

We were seated eight away with our reservation. Waitstaff was attentive without being pushy or "in your face" about things. Personally witnessed Covid-19 precautions taking place. Food was great, as were the drinks. Honestly the only complaint I have is that the music was too loud. My wife and I had to either lean in ornalmost shout to hear each other.

i can’t remember who our male server was - but he only checked in with us a couple of times. it took a while to get our drinks, food, and bill. a couple that came in 10 or so minutes after us were able to sit, eat, and pay while we had just gotten our food and began eating. it was annoying but we will still come back as that was the first time we have had bad service here

Always a go to when I have guests in town, lunch with friends or dinner with family. Thirsty Lion never disappoints. Scottish eggs are always a must.

Went for Easter. The brunch menu was very meat heavy so I had to order from the regular menu. Everybody loved their food and we had a good time. Service was oddly slow given the place was just not that full when we were there.

Two meals were excellent and two were so-so. The size of their oj is kinda ridiculous but, we’re finding that more and more common. Host was super friendly. Restaurant was clean and the noise level was just right.
