It is as if time stood still on Main Street, Unionville. Red brick exteriors are always bright, flowers are always in bloom, and children are always laughing and playing around ice cream shops. Art galleries display timeless art pieces, and steps away, nearby pond breathes peacefulness. The old world appeals through the depth of its cultural and historical past. Main Street invites weary visitors to sit back and soak in the wisdom of times.
Nestled in a building about the age of Canada, Old Country Inn is one of the most established businesses on the Main Street and one of the best reflections of its character. Reminiscent of a central European hunting lodge, its ambiance is lovingly assembled from authentic wooden and cast iron decor, live plants, music instruments, European style lanterns and artifacts of village life.
Suitability. A charming fact to know about Main Street: a bride will probably find everything she needs within a short walking distance, including bridal stores, alterations specialists, florists, beauty salons, accessories, and amazing photography backdrop. Unionville Main Street is easily accessible via highways (404, 407 or highway 7), and limited customer parking is available in the back, with plenty more parking steps away. The restaurant is fully wheelchair accessible and can provide a lockable space to be used as bridal suite. The celebration will have to finish by midnight, but you can leave your decor there until next morning.
The Terrace. Larger groups of up to 70 gather in a well laid-out, wood-and-straw, Oktoberfest-style hall called the Terrace. It is a rustic, uncluttered, candle-lit kind of place that lends itself easily to decoration. The restaurant will work with you to accommodate special design elements (such as chair covers or table skirts) that you bring.
Food and drink. Central European cuisine is known for its savoury, comfort food quality – think goulash, schnitzel, wurst, sauerkraut, apple strudel – but Old Country Inn menu also features unusually light seafood appetizers (we recommend you try smoked trout). Some excellent Central European beverages round out the experience – such as Austrian beer Gosser, German beer Hacker-Pschorr, and Austrian house wine.
Cost – as of August 2018. As a starting point, set two-course menus (selection of chicken, fish or schnitzel for main course) start at $30 per guest (see the sample party menu) – but the restaurant will work with you to tailor the menu to your preferences. Old Country Inn charges for beverages based on actual consumption, and will work with you to limit the selection to less-expensive alcohols if required. Gratuity of 18% will apply to the group’s bill.
