I went here for lunch. The soup of the day was a squash with nuts and seeds and yogurt and was delicious. Then my friend and I shared the mushroom pizza which was amazing. Highly recommend.

Best food in Thornbury. If you want casual you can eat on the main floor . They feature wood burning pizzas here . If you want more upscale book on top . They change the menu frequently so there is lots of variety. Excellent staff and service .

Looked forward to trying this place out as reviews were great. Found it to be disappointing. Hard chairs, noisy place. Menu looked interesting. Started with squash soup and steak tartar $21.!!! with 'sous vide' duck egg yolk! Both very good but the small globule of egg yolk was less than anything in tastiness. Looked pretty I guess. Home made chips... More

We loved it. I don't normally order a vegetarian dish at restaurants but this sounded great and it was over and above my expectations! Husband had the venison-also delicious. Only downside was the $75 wine was not worth the money :-(

My partner and I went to Bruce Wine Bar for his birthday on October 8, 2016. We made reservations online which were confirmed via telephone earlier that day. When we arrived, we were seated right away. The restaurant is very cozy and it has a warm atmosphere. You can see the chefs cooking, which is neat. We ordered some drinks,... More

Our first time visiting Thornbury and we'll definitely be back! The Bruce Wine Bar had the perfect ambiance for our little date night/mini getaway. The wine selection was great, the service was very friendly and the food was delicious. Pizza was perfectly cooked. Definitely share a cheese board to start!! Already planning our next visit. :)

Started with Caesar and Tomato / Burrata salads, both excellent, edge to the Tomatos. Warm rosemary olives were delivered at same time as salads, would have been nice to have them first. Duck special and organic chicken for mains, both very good. Puff pastry, fruit and cream concoction for dessert was superb. Only drawback was sitting under the AC unit... More

I've been trying to get a reservation here but always out of luck. Finally made it and we loved it. Great food, great staff, great wine. Only watch-out - we booked online and ended up on a 'high chair/communal table. It wasn't a problem that night but I'd rather have known. also, no kids menu though pizza is on the... More
