My mother used to insist I went to Church every Sunday, she said it was good for me. Well this visit to The Church Restaurant was not good for me. Starters were ok, I had Smoked Haddock Tartlet with a poached egg, the egg was nor completely cooked but I was ok with that, my wife had the Cheese and... More

We have been to the Church many times and can honestly say that it's consistently good. Great quality home cooked food, their Pate is fantastic. On Sunday we had a table of 8 and every one of us had not only superb food but friendly attentive service too. Thanks for yet another Great meal/experience. See you again very soon. Paul... More

Visited the church restaurant for the tarot night. The food was faultless until the desert. The desert trolley arrived and we were very excited. I had the carrot cake. Unfortunately the top of the cake was hard as though it had been left standing for a while (because it probably had) it was also ridiculously sweet. I have eaten many... More

Upon recommendation I took my wife here tonight for her birthday. We received a warm welcome, were served quickly (but not rushed). The waiter (manager?) engaged us in brief conversation but did not intrude. Very pleasant. The food was excellent - never eaten a better steak! Lovely atmosphere and the place itself is quirky - it being a renovated church!!... More

We have dined at The Church many times, and have yet to have a bad experience here. The staff have always been welcoming and attentive, any little errors are rectified quickly (trainees have to learn and this is perfectly acceptable). The food has always been excellent, the price isn't too steep, and the range of wine is good. The downstairs... More

My 7yr old girl wanted to have an old fashioned tea party for her birthday party. We had a great day. Diane and Paul went out of there way to make it special. Nothing was too much bother, lovely cupcakes, sandwiches cut into butterfly's to go with the theme, hot food was really nice and went down well. It looked... More

I have been coming to this restaurant for a number of years now, booking a table for between 16 and 20 for our annual training course in Stoke. Diane is always welcoming and goes to great efforts to make sure the event runs as smoothly as possible for us. The meal is always fantastic value and I get lots of... More

we visited on father's day with our 4 year old son. The food was lovely (we had chicken and ham suet pudding) and the setting was so unique and pretty. Service was a little slow (and we had to ask for more drinks) but it meant that our mains didn't arrive as soon as we'd finished our starters which we... More
