“A little disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

We took our Son-in law for his Birthday as we had eaten here a couple of years ago and enjoyed our meal on that visit. Three of us had fish and chips and the fish was over cooked and the portions were small, might have just been a bad day. The waitress was very pleasant and efficient. Not sure if we will make a return visit.

“good food , reasonable prices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

went here as a family get together. food was good, not fantastic but good. restaurant very clean, staff could stand to smile a little more and pretend they are happy about their jobs but they did well other than that. Would go again for sure. But it's not grand, it's just a nicer truck stop style restaurant.

“Consistent Quality and Good Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

We have had the good fortune to visit the Varney Inn on many occasions. The Inn consists of the restaurant and motel. The menu has a lots to choose from, is primarily Canadian with a few Greek selections ie. Souvlaki and Greek Salad. There is the regular menu and daily specials. Specials often include soup or salad and a selection of desserts. Pricing is moderate $6 to $15 for main course items, and provide very good value.

The waitresses are well trained, efficient and courteous. The kitchen team consistently produces meals of good quality in a timely fashion. Angela and Jason Baron own the Inn, Angela working front of the house with Jason in the kitchen. Both are very friendly always ready with a smile or a few words. Many of their customers have been coming to the Inn since they opened approx. 15 years ago.

I am pleased to recommend the restaurant as a place to meet friends and or family. The restaurant is located on Hwy 6 about 15 min north of Mount Forest and about 5 min south of Durham.
