Cask ale and great pub food are what you can expect at The King Edward. A quaint little restaurant located in downtown Ilderton, 7 minutes north of London.
Atmosphere is British pub with five booths, numerous tables, and two large group sections in the back of the restaurant. Huge big screen TV beside a small bar of about 10 seats. Thereís a side room for those who want to chat away from the hustle and bustle. The chalk board informs patrons of the latest cask and tap offerings, as well as food specials.
Affable, competent service with fairly knowledgeable staff. Drinks and food come to the table promptly.
Beer selection is tiny but emphasizes quality. As of November í09, Fullerís Red Fox was on cask, while Wellington Special Pale Ale, Fullerís London Pride, Big Rock Grasshopper Wheat, and Hacker Pschorr Oktoberfest Lager were on tap. The real ale and draught beers constantly rotate so thereís always something different each week. For instance, over the last few months theyíve had Stone Hammer Dark, Railway City Honey Brown, and Fullerís ESB on tap, plus MacLeanís Pale Ale, Grand River Ploughmanís Ale & Mill Race Mild, and Fullerís Bengal Lancer & Jack Frost on the hand pump.
The food is a treat here. My girlfriend and I tried the "Bourbon Street" wings glazed in Jack Danielís and cajun sauce - they were unreal! The Steak & Guinness pie was delicious and my girl enjoyed her greek salad (a surprise at an English pub). Looks like they make their own dressing. Overall, things are on the pricey side but this is a go-to spot in the London area. Awesome cask & tap offerings and a welcoming atmosphere.

I go to a lot of pubs/restaurants in the London-Sarnia area and I have to say this is my single favourite spot. It hits most of my "must haves" for a casual place - inviting and comfortable "check", great tap selection "check", friendly staff "check", good food "check", reasonable prices "check". I also really appreciate that they have daily specials, a separate wing menu, usually a number of ontario craft brews and always have a cask.

The owners are very knowledgable and very warm and inviting. The restaurant offers all of the favorite pub classics. They have a great home baked Steak & Guinness Pie. They offer hand pulled cask ales plus many craft beers on tap. A must visit if you are in the area of wanting a nice weekend getaway treat.

Alsways a cask ale available. Lots of British imports and local micro british ales. pub grub and a full meal menu of Brit tavern favorites. I had the bangers and mash an a pint of hand pulled wellington.
This is an old renovated house much like the winking judge but not as crowded and it has itís own charm. Big screen TV, bands on weekends.

Located about a ten minute drive northwest of London, Ontario, the King Edward is a gem in the rough. The only place between Hamilton and Windsor to get cask, hand pulled beer. Stonehammer Dark, Wellington Arkell, Macleans Pale Ale are just a few of the beers that have been on Cask. Rich (the owner, operator) is a beer enthusiast and likes to keep the real as fresh as possible, and he has also ensured his staff are well versed in beer knowledge, and traet the beer with respect. Other ontario misros included Steamwhistle and Millstreet products. Good UK style ambiance and food, quick service, good ownership. Keep up the good work Rich and staff!
