Was a little put off given some bad reviews but we had a most enjoyable evening.The service and food was fantastic with the bonus of a bar downstairs.The building had a great feeling to it and will definitely return and recommend to others.

The 'Church' gave our family anniversary party a well presented, well served selection of great meals. The atmosphere is second to non with the fascinating 'Crypt' bar and disco adding a little extra to the evening. Dianne, Gary and all the staff were attentive friendly and helpful at all times, the sophisticated touches to ensure an 'occasion' feels 'special' were... More

Six of us went for a Birthday night out. The food was excellent as always. The staff couldn't be more helpful. I had the prawns to stat and the belly pork for the main. The food was cooked to perfection. The owner Di took the time to chat to us and ensure we were happy with everything. I would recommend... More

We have been to the Church on numerous occasions and the food is always excellent. I had the pate to start, the rump of lamb with lovely vegetables and roast potatoes. The choice of sweets is amazing. The owner came across and made us all feel special. Highly recommend

Came here for a surprise birthday as we had visited a couple of years previously and decided to save it for special occassions. Menu was very good with a wide choice of meals. Once ordered though we felt as though we were being rushed. As soon as starters were finished, the mains arrived. We were asked twice if we had... More

I couldn't fault the food or the service. Even though Gary was on his own with the exception of the chef, he went all out to ensure we weren't waiting too long for our meals and in time made sure he served us drinks. He was very friendly and polite and made us feel very welcome. I can highly recommend... More

The building is a converted church which I feel is trying to be a community centre and a restaurant. The food was most enjoyable as was the environment and the staff were most attentive.
