Thistle was fantastic. Just what we needed for a lunch break after a full morning out on the slopes. Service was fast but not rushed and our drinks were never empty. The chili was fantastic and I highly recommend the gnocchi appetizer if you’re a fan of walnuts.

Great food and service. Loved the pretzel! However I nearly did a face plant tripping over that black stand that has the protection sheet on it. The window blocked my fall. I bruised my leg when I fell. The person who seats you should point that out to you. She had one of of seated on the bench and one of us in the chair opposite. I moved to sit next to my husband in the bench and tripped getting back there. Our breakfast the next morning again was excellent food and service.

It was a wonderful dining experience. I was a bit disappointed in the shepherds pie. Beef was not very tender and sauce looked / tasted more like beef bouquet coloring rather than a deep rich flavorful sauce developed with seasoning and a long period of roasting. It was Ok, but I expected exceptional for this pub.

We were impressed that proper precautions were in place. We have had both COVID vaccines, so we felt more relaxed, but it’s important for those who have not been vaccinated, to see that they were following the required guidelines. We would not hesitate to eat there again as the food was delicious! We would recommend it to our friends, as well.

Had a wonderful dining experience March 2021. Great service, great food, great atmosphere, great adherence to social distancing. Only negative was the Raspberry coulie on chocolate tarte had too much vinegar. All 4 dinners we ordered were delicious and professionally prepared. Even my vegan teen daughter was impressed. Great experience!!
