We had a really good evening meal here whilst staying at the travelodge next door. Reasonably priced with really good and attentive staff, beer not bad either.

Visited the church mouse with my nana, the staff were all very friendly and efficient. The chef was very accommodating with my requests. The food was delicious and the decor was really stylish. Will return again, look forward to it.

As the place was very full it is not surprising that our food order was a bit more delayed, but once placed the food came in good... More
