The first time we visited here was before we had our children. It has been on our list of places to go back to for a while. My six year old son summed it up perfectly when he said "I think the Church Mouse has done my tea excellently" and they had! All of our meals were beautifully presented ample... More

Really well designed and laid out with small relaxing areas for privacy. Food was great and can't be faulted. Service was excellent, even though the waitresses were busy, they were still friendly and polite.
