This gastropub is situated across from London's Grand Theatre and so is a convenient spot for a pre-theatre dinner. The number one menu choice for most of our group is the fish and chips. My personal favourite is the corned beef served with red cabbage. The corned beef is made in-house and is always tasty and very nice and juicy.... More

This place just gets it right every time! The well-designed menu offers ample selection (smoked salmon-wrapped scallops are a must!), the wine list is reasonably priced with terrific variety, the food is consistent, and the staff always happy. Also, the beer taps are changed up quite regularly, offering regulars the chance to try new flavours. I highly recommend this spot,... More

I have eaten here twice and both times the food was bad. Great name, great atmosphere and the menu looks promising, but I would not go back.

A lively atmosphere, the main course of Salmon and lamb was a solid effort. The service was one of the best I have seen in London, Ontario. All told, a really pleasurable evening

Although this restaurant is small it makes up for it by having great service and a varied menu. There are daily specials to complement the menu so the choice can be difficult. If you go for dinner ask to see the Sunday Brunch Binder. I think the chef uses the Sunday brunch to showcase his skills because each week the... More

My first impression was the $25 price for bunch was a bit high. However, after experiencing the delicious food and great service I would have to say it was great value. I will be making Sunday Brunch at the Church Key a regular thing.
