Great food and service

Great food and service. We ordered a bunch of apps and drinks. What awesome flavours and an adventurous menu. Not your average London fare. Simply put: A jewel in London's food scene.

Only been there once and dying to go again. It was by far the best steak I've ever had! We were all at the table raving about how good it all was.

This is a lovely restaurant and the food is great here. It has a nice patio right in the heart of down town or you can eat inside as well

The Church Key is our go-to restaurant. They always have interesting and delicious features. Good sized portions for fair prices. Owners are very kind and take pride in ensuring customers leave happy. Brunch is exceptional as well - pastries are house-made and fab. Be sure to make a reservation! Must-try: Irish Enchiladas and Smoked Mushroom dip! Braised-beef is perfectly done... More

Very enjoyable meal on their good sized and removed from the street patio. Appetizers were yummy especially the smoked mushroom dip and the house pretzel bread with Dijon mustard. We all enjoyed our entrees - the game meat of the day was a great venison and something else sausage; the smoked corned beef was tasty and super tender. Portions were... More

I have eaten here several times and have enjoyed each visit. They have actual chefs working there so the food is freshly made.

After sampling the Irish Enchilada with chili lime sauce and minted creme fresh while sipping on a cool Steam Whistle, I made it in on each of the 3 days I visited and knew I would be back. Well I...

This pub/restaurant has great reviews, & justifiably so. Very small inside, I guess 40 patrons "intimately" seated. Excellent sound system w/ excellent choice of tracks. Extremely knowledgeable & friendly owner/manager (?) Peter. Nothing undesirable about this place.

An interesting twist on a pub. A higher level pub with more interesting food that was is typically offered. The curry fries, homemade hot dog and daily special never fails to impress. I like the beer but would like to see the beers change more often.
