Good food, good service - all round great experience

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

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.

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.

I have been in twice. It is directly across from the Grand Theater. Very nice atmosphere. They have a small but extremely nice outdoor patio area covered by trees. I was there with my son last summer and back again with my other son in January. Lots of dark wood trim with a varied menu. I would call it a... More

We were heading to the theatre and chose the Church Key because of the proximity. We were pleasantly impressed with the service and also the food. Although the servings were a little on the small side we shared the ploughman's plate appetizer and it was amazing. Will for sure go back....hopefully when it is warmer and can enjoy the patio!

I like the Church Key for a summertime brunch or before/after dinner drinks. The patio is quaint and closed-off, and the brunch options are definitely delicious.
