Excellent food in a lovely setting in an outdoor garden. Attentive waitstaff. On the pricey side but well worth it.

The church key is a great spot for dinner before the theatre directly across the street. It has the feel of a pub and the food is very good. I had the lamb curry and my partner had fish and chips. Both dishes were cooked well but not exceptional.

Excellent food, lovely ambience, will certainly visit again, next time for dinner. Atmosphere turned a casual lunch into a memorable experience.

This a nice destination for a quick lunch. The food is good and so is the service. The menus is very reasonable (price wise) for a downtown restaurant. Try the veggie burger. It is one of the best I had in London, ON.

We have been to Church Key several times. Whether out on the patio in the good weather or nestled in the warmth of the main interior, the food and the atmosphere is always most pleasant.

My wife and I had a great meal at Church Key and we can't wait to go back again! The food was tremendous, the portions were generous, and the cider was top notch. Definitely recommended!

Ate dinner there before a play at Grand theater. It is directly across the street. Large portions, enough for two people. Good presentation. Had the mussels, lamb currry, mushroom dip. All was very tasty. Waiter we had was great, very personable and helpful. Space is a little limited but otherwise well worth another trip.

Such a quaint restaurant. We have been 3x and have enjoyed each visit. The wait staff is top notch and so professional. Not rushed even on New Years Eve. Great specials and wild game options. Mushroom dip appetizer is a must try!!

Nice pub with good food better than a regular pub. Good place to take friends out of town for a good time.

Awesome Pims Cup!! If you haven't tried a Pims cup, I don't recommend going anywhere but the Church Key for your first. Not that it's a diffcult drink to make, they just do a great job.

Thank Co2_Ver-3
