I have just returned from a great evening at The Church bar where I and many business colleagues had a meal. Not only was the food well cooked and presented, the serving of it was efficient and without problem. The staff were courteous and helpful and the atmosphere was great. It was my first visit here but it certainly won't... More

my friend and I visited on the off chance that The Church was doing afternoon teas and we were not disappointed! Inside the restaurant is lovely, with beautiful decor and we were taken to our table by the waiter and given 3 options to choose from for our afternoon tea menu . We chose the tea with a prawn cocktail... More

For the price, the food is ridiculously small! I'm very petite, size 8, so don't think this is a fat person talking! I ordered steak along with my friends and we had to share our potatoes and vedge! Tiny bit of steak, about 3 small potatoes each and around 2 carrot sticks. Not great. The tarot card readers are ridiculous... More

Went for Christmas meal with friends - utterly disappointed. Cutlery & glasses were dirty; pate starter was OK but braised beef main course was awful. Given a plate of potatoes & another of cauliflower, carrots & green beans to share between 4 of us. Wasn't enough to go around, particularly as meat portions were so small. Asked for more but...

I visited here just before Christmas with 4 members of my family and the food, service and atmosphere were all 2nd to none. My 83 year old father in law even commented on his steak, calling it the best he'd ever eaten. We go about 3 times a year and are never disappointed. Give it a go!

I visited for a christmas Friday lunchtime with friends. It was a disappointing experience. The food was very bland. The pate had no taste at all & the accompanying side salad had a very strange after taste. The christmas turkey dinner was also bland & uninspiring. We didn't bother ordering any deserts, but we ordered coffee & a coke, the... More

We visited the Church for an afternoon tea on our trip from Manchester to Stoke-on-Trent (to see a soccer match). The restaurant/bar/tea-house is in a beautiful old church a short taxi ride from the train station. (Convenienty, a taxi service lies across the street, so coming and going is easy.) The staff was very accommodating. Our table was cozy and... More

Excellent Food and Brilliant Christmassy atmosphere. Dianne, Gary & the Staff were brilliant from booking up and arranging our "personal requests"! to just making the day a perfect Christmassy day. Food was hot and superb, and whilst it was really busy, there was no rush put on us to finish or go. Thanks Lots, and so glad the Church is... More
