Time Out says

5 out of 5 stars

Decadent surroundings, divine cocktails and much more on Colston Avenue

Hidden in plain sight, it's likely that most of the drinkers in the White Lion pub next door may be completely oblivious to Milk Thistle's four floors of decadent excess.

If you don’t like wood panelling and taxidermy, look away now. Each level has a different function, with a ground-floor cocktail bar, first-floor private members lounge and various function rooms including private dining with chefs from sister restaurant The Ox.

If you’re here with a group of friends, try the Milk Thistle punch or selection of Trappist beers made by monks in monasteries across Europe.
