Girls Night Out for Dinner was a Blast!

We (a group of women of assorted ages) were at the Church Key yesterday for a celebratory dinner. Coming from a variety of backgrounds and tastes, we chose the Church Key for its reasonable prices and the menu items which ran the gamut. Starting with a number of appetizers (the mushroom dip had... read more

We recently ate at the Church Key and can truly say it was great! We were welcomed as soon as we entered and chose the patio where we had a great table near the back which was shaded. The beverage menu is very extensive and the meals we selected were both hot (a definite prerequisite) and well presented. We will... More

Great flavours and great choices! The bison steak (the special that day) was beyond perfection. And the vegetables were incredible. Would definitely be back - and I've been told brunch is incredible!

We were visiting London to celebrate our anniversary and decided to just wander till a restaurant caught our eye. The Church Key has a lovely little patio that looked perfect and we were not disappointed. We had enjoyed a late lunch and were not ravenous at dinner. The meal started with a pretzel type bread with mustard seed butter that... More

Pros: food, staff, location, beer cons: sometimes it gets busy and loud So if you want a nice conversation avoid it on the weekends.

The menu is limited, but what they do serve is done up very nicely. The location with the small patio makes for an intimate experience!

We were greeted as soon as we arrived by friendly staff . They have a great selection of craft beer and my favourite...Guinness. We loved the menu... More

Arrived without reservations and were greeted warmly upon arrival. Sat on the beautiful patio and were attended to quickly by their staff. We ordered the Church Key Burger, the Panko Crusted Grill Cheese and the Chicken Naan-Which. The three of us enjoyed tasting each other's dishes, all of which were of fantastic taste and quality. This was our first visit... More
