We visited The Blue Willow again in March 2014 and had another wonderful meal. The quiche is absolutely amazing and the butter tarts and scones are among the best we've ever tasted! Don't miss it!

I have eaten here multiple times....always great food and great service. (lunch/dinner) The English fair is perfect, as are the prices. It is always cold in there in the off season.

Enjoyed high tea in England and various places in Canada. The Blue Willow is the best. I have been known to drive several hours to get there.

We held a private function at The Blue Willow in 2013 and were so impressed we chose the same location for another private function in February 2014. Sue Barrett, the owner of the shop, personally contacts you to discuss menu ideas and the type of set-up you would like.

From the moment you enter the restaurant, you can relax with your guests, knowing that every detail has been taken care of. The food was great and the service fantastic. The staff have that wonderful balance of being personable yet professional. The view of the frozen Muskoka Bay and the lights on the Segwun and Wenonah II wintered at dock added to the total ambiance.

Every one of our guests called, wrote or emailed after the dinner party to tell us what a wonderful time they had.

I would highly recommend The Blue Willow for any private dinner party of about 16 - 20 people.
I have enclosed a couple of photos of the setup for our dinner party. Just as beautiful in winter as it is in summer.
