Been to The Church on a few occasions, always had a good meal. Staff are lovely, went last night for the company Xmas meal, we had a fantastic evening, I chose the lamb which was tender and succulent. Went downstairs after the meal for a little boogie, definitely be going back 😀

The food overall was boring an bland. I was disgusted by the price I had to pay for two basically mini quiches and salad. This cost me10.95! My friends ordered the Thai curry and hated it and compared it to dishwater. It was not worth the money and the portions were small and silly The food could be overlooked but... More

On the Stoke leg of our recent England trip a local suggested the Church for a meal. Friendly staff greeted us at the old but very cool venue. We started with prawn cocktails. Our prawns were lovely. For mains we shared pork belly and boneless lamb. The boneless lamb was tender and succulent, the pork belly superb! Cider and sage... More

It's been a couple of years since we last visited this restaurant and felt it has seriously taken a huge nose dive. The manageress was very curt and rather rude, waving us downstairs on arrival. When we were seated for our meal there were some baskets of bread on the table... Supermarket bought cheese topped buns!! Starters were bland and... More

I am speaking for our party of 30 who attended our Christmas do at The Church. We can all whole heartedly say it was the most enjoyable we have had and will not hesitate in booking in future years. The food was consistently good, delivered promptly to the table and was plentiful in choice. However, it was the staff attentiveness... More

I recommended The Church after a good visit for Sunday lunch. 8 of us booked for our Xmas food before planning to visit the Casino. The food was on time and we were not rushed through at all. For the food, I had the Thai Curry and it was spot on. Couple of the lads had steak and said how... More

This wasn't my first visit, it may be my last. Visited as part of works Christmas party. Firstly, we were split on 2 tables one in front of the other, however, after asking we were put on tables side by side. Service was quick but not courteous more rushed. Food was ok but a little dry. Its also a pain... More

Went for a Christmas party. Food was of poor standard and not especially hot. We had to send some of the meals back. Christams Pud was served with milk not brandy custard or cream. After dinner coffees was instant despite there being a posh looking coffee machine. And we were only given 1 cracker for every 2 in the party.... More
