My wife and had heard good things about the food here. Service was good. Food was only so-so. Be ready to pay $100 minimum for two. Will not return. We have had at least as good in other Cobourg restaurants for less.

We had our club Christmas Dinner (57 people) at the Woodlawn Inn, and it was excellent! The food was delicious, and the service was absolutely first rate.
