Everyone was looked after and left satisfied. That alone is a testament to the service we experienced. We were given a separate, private foom... More

Just visited this lovely establishment yesterday on a bus trip from Brampton and I must say it has a lovely ambience especially at Christmas time. The servers are most professional and dainty. The food was very very declicious and the dessert was fresh and moist. I would recommend this quaint Inn to everyone.....

Didn't stay at the Inn but have used their restaurant a couple of time. Certainly a good spot for that special dinner. Not a huge menu but the food was excellent albeit a bit expensive.

The Woodlawn Inn has a very special meaning to us. We were lucky to have our small wedding there many years ago. Stephen and his staff made sure that everything went smoothly and everyone was well taken care off. The old European charm, the very gracious and attentive menager and staff made us feel very comfortable. Over the years we... More

We stayed at the Inn and had dinner to celebrate my friend's birthday. We had decided that we preferred to try the chef's tasting menu, but after a discussion with our waitress decided against it based on food allergies and sensitivities. We ordered the prix fixe menu, butternut squash soup with curry and the ravioli. The french onion style soup... More

My partner and I returned here for a quiet, romantic dinner in October 2014. As always the ambience was perfect. We were warmly greeted and shown to a table in an intimate corner. During the meal the owner came to ask if we were happy. Overall we were very pleased with our meals, but my partner did find her soup... More
