It was talked up as one of Cobourg best places to eat but I would not agree. My meal was returned with undercooked meat and my friend didn't care for her meal either. Food was average,... More

Our experiences @ the Woodlawn in Cobourg have always been 5*****. We've been going there since we were in our early 20's (over 30 years now) and we continued with our children.

We have dined at The Woodlawn a few times now. Always impeccable service and the meal is beautifully presented. The Wine Sommelier is on hand to recommend a wonderful accompaniment to your meal. For a special evening out or just in need of some pampering you must visit The Woodlawn.

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.

First time there. Very unique and historical building. Rooms were nice and spacious, clean and airy. Bed was not overly comfortable and the pillows could have been better. The staff was great. John behind the bar was a delight.
