The Keg and Thistle
If it’s a drink on your way home from work, dinner with family or cocktails with friends, the “KEG & THISTLE” is the place to go. Stepping inside for the first time, I am greeted by a warm ambiance with a buzz in the air that says, “Welcome home, Stay as long as you like!”
Newly opened and situated in the Glenore Centre, Glenashley, it provides a beautiful view of the Indian Ocean. KEG & THISTLE boasts a traditional pub menu some of which includes Bangers and Mash, Beer-battered Hake and Chips, Liver and Onions and some uniquely named menu items such as the ‘Other FAT Bastard’ (and no, they are not referring to the guy next to you), the ‘Footlong Pecker’ and the ‘Publican’s Pie of the Day.’ After some deliberating, my taste buds decided on a yummy pie filled with chicken, mozzarella, jalapenos, creamed spinach, served with a choice of sides and a hearty onion gravy the Dixie Pie.
It was not too thick or “heavy” as some may find, but still quite filling and the jalapenos gave quite a nice bite. The Crumbed Chicken Burger and the KEGasaurus (a tender flame-grilled prime beef) were also ordered. My only comment is if you aren’t particularly in the mood for bacon and avo on top of your beef, then rather opt for a Prime Cut with a KEG sauce to your liking, or give the KEGasaurus Burger a try!
