We had a lovely meal to celebrate our daughter's birthday. We hadn't been out for dinner since March so it was extra special for us to be in such beautiful surroundings with fabulous food. The service was exceptional. The Christmas decorations were just lovely as well. Thank you!
Wonderful ambiance for any meal. Beautiful setting, attentive staff
A very enjoyable experience with great food & service - thanks Catherine! Will return!
The most warm and welcoming staff and an excellent traditional meal for a very reasonable price. We loved everything about this place!
Food was delish, our server was lovely, and the Inn was the perfect setting for a date night.
Lovely food and service. Definitely great for special occasions.

20th wedding anniversary
Celebrated our anniversary here. Food was great, atmosphere on the front porch was very relaxing, did not feel rushed at all. Service was attentive but not overwhelming. Overall a great experience.
Absolutely delicious meal. Had a lovely covered spot on the front porch. I heard the courtyard was also nice. Our server, Katherine, was wonderful. She was attentive without lingering and very pleasant. We will definitely go back!
We dined in the courtyard. Very relaxing, plenty of shade on a warm, sunny day.
Menu selection was reasonable, as were prices. Service was excellent, very attentive and polite. Made suggestions about our selections and beverage pairings.
Definitely a great spot for lunch or dinner.
First time out to dine since covidi. The back patio is a great space you can easily self distance. Great evening. Only negative thing to say would be washroom should be sterile at this time and it was not very clean. I know staff are kept very busy during this time however during the pandemic this should not be overlooked.
Lovely breakfast on the patio!
Try the steak. It’s amazing. This place is amazing
Beautiful building and very well preserved
Food was outstanding as was the service... nothing fell short and we will be back !!!
The place is beautiful! Great experience and wonderful staff!! finished valentines night of with a lovely rose as well!
As for the food, my girlfriend ordered from the regular menu and loved the food! I ordered from the pre-fix menu and was disappointed with the polenta appetizer (soupy not very seasoned) and lentil wellington (way too dry) but loved the desert!
Overall great experience but wish I ordered from the regular menu!
Great service, great food. I've been here a few times now, food quality is always excellent.
First time here would definitely come back again. My wife and I both loved it. The food was exquisite, The best we have had in London in a long time. The chef is amazing,Great dishes with tons of flavour and interesting combinations.
We took our son for his birthday along with his wife. Meals were very well presented and sufficient in size. $300 for 4 with wine and tip.
Food was good. Service was slow. Felt like they were short staffed. We’ve been here many times before, and this is the first time the service was poor.
My girlfriend came here for our anniversary. The staff were excellent, professional, and went above and beyond to make sure our night was special. The food was amazing and delicious. We will definitely be coming back.

We love going to Idlewyld Inn because it is like being at home. The staff is welcoming and attentive. The Victorian decor at Christmas is beautiful. My only complaint is that it was a little chilly.
I have nothing bad to say. Most enjoyable and will return to sleep in the beautiful bed in room 101.
A wonderful experience and the ambience is splendid. Recommend to all who truly enjoy a rare dining experieince.
All was excellent with this reservation
Fantastic food and very interesting location. Couldn’t be happier ! Only issue is some of the tables feel like you are on a highway with servers and guests constantly moving beside you. So it’s a little cramped. But the food was amazing. I’ll be back for sure
Had a phenomenal dinner. The prime rib was incredible and the seafood linguine was delicious. Our server was attentive and very pleasant and the room was quaint and intimate. It was a lovely dinner from start to finish.
Excellent elegant dining, well thought our menu and presented so beautifully. Great attention to detail from waiting staff.
Such a beautiful restaurant/Inn. Lunch was delicious, service was exceptional, atmosphere wonderful!
We have been here before a few years ago (2012) and we were not pleased. The last two times ,everything has been over the top. Service,food,value,portions,ambience. We loved it. Our new favorite restaurant in London now. Thanks!!
The turret room is a lovely spot for lunch with friends.
