Great Breakfast Stopover

While on a day outing we started our adventure by stopping here for breakfast. Great and friendly service. Pricing was good and the menu gave you adequate selection.

Found this by searching for restaurants in St Thomas. It is actually in a rural area on the outskirts of St Thomas. The meatloaf was very good and the chicken in the chicken parmigiana was nice and juicy. The spaghetti noodles were overdone. The stuffing with the 1/4 chicken dinner was way too salty for us and the chicken only... More

New Sarum is a hop, skip and a jump from St. Thomas Ontario in Elgin County. This old style country diner is nestled inside what looks like a converted barn. The floors are creaky old wood, and the walls are covered with antiques and photographs from the surrounding area. The food is wholesome and plentiful ... ready to satisfy appetites... More

The New Sarum Diner is just that, Fantastic food at a great price. Roast Chicken is the house specialty but all the diner fare is there as well, foot long hot dogs to milk shakes,hot beef sandwiches to Onion Rings. a trip down memory lane and a great meal to boot !!

Love their speciality which is chicken. You can have several ways to order. Single plate, dinner for 2 or a family sized dinner. The atmosphere is designed to give you a relaxed, unhurried feeling while you are eating. I happen to love their chicken and dumplings! Family dining at its best.

I dined here with friends. Ample parking, a pleasant and homelike ambience, and prompt and attentive service. I had the 'Dumpling Dinner' and it was very good indeed. My friends pronounced the meatloaf excellent. If you are in the St Thomas area and want a good family restaurant, this is the place.

One of the features of New Sarum Family Restaurant is that every Wednesday the feature item on their menu is a delicious Chicken & Dumplings dinner. The meal comes with choice of potato with hot rich gravy if desired and Cole slaw. You can also choose white or dark meat. This meal is fall apart tender chicken with two dumplings... More

Real busy in here, and I would say the average age of customers 50 and over. we had pub like food, fish and chips and burgers, they were fairly good. Drink service could be improved, wait time for the food was not too bad considering the amount of customers in there. Overall I would say average small town diner.

We stopped here for lunch and the menu was ideal. Soup, sandwiches and the home burger were thoroughly enjoyed. The home burger, a triple burger, was a meal in itself. Very tasty all round. Two of us shared a deep fried ice cream and one with a rice pudding. All were excellent but we were glad to have taken the... More
