This pub has a very nice rustic atmosphere, the fire and decor make it a nice place to have a drink. There is a good selection of drinks at average prices. The food is good, pub food and reasonably priced.

I booked a table for 6.30 as it was for my birthday. My partner and I arrived a few minutes early. We were shown our seat by a lovely young lady who then sorted out our drinks. Throughout the ordering process we were served by Brad. He was very attentive but left us to enjoy our eating and drinking experience.... More

Met at the church mouse today for a quick catch up with friends. Lovely Christmassy atmosphere- fires roaring and lovely deco. Had a fish finger sandwich, it was lovely. Pudding wasn't quite as nice- creme brûlée (was a bit too set). Staff were very friendly and attentive.

Had such a lovely Christmas meal with work. Great patience from the staff dealing with me phoning several times to change our booking and really efficient when we arrived checking that the orders were all correct. Particular shout out to Sarah for being really friendly throughout and taking extra care that our night went well.

We live around the corner from here and used to go frequently, then it went a bit off by the quality of the food and had not been for a couple of years. We are often out for Sunday lunch and we have been here the last two weeks and very impressed. The first week we had the Roast Turkey... More

This was an 'on spec' visit which was attached to the travel lodge where we were staying... What a pleasant suprise! The welcome was warm and hospitable, the atmosphere was fabulous and the food delightful - and all at a very good price. I would wholeheartedly recommend the Church Mouse and will make an effort to dine there again on... More

This was a family ladies night out and we had booked the Christmas Fayre menu which had plenty of choices to suit all tastes. The whole meal was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone right down to the final cup of coffee. Service was friendly - we weren't rushed through the meal and our waitress was friendly and efficient.

We attended the Church Mouse for lunch with friends at the end of November. The lay out of the restaurant is welcoming, the atmosphere and ambience is excellent and service was friendly and efficient. However, the quality of the food itself was a little patchy; our "shared starters" were fine but unexceptional, my wife's fish was excellent but my chicken... More
