Disappointed

Been drinking in the Churchview for years. The food is not top notch but since the redecorating, whilst the pub looks great, the service has taken a hit. The poor staff have to serve food and drinks rather than a dedicated section for food orders. This really is annoying when behind a family... read more

Couldn't fault the lovely staff but food was rubbish. A roast dinner that was dry, a risotto that was dry and a chicken and bacon salad with cooked garden peas over it! Used to be great food but won't be rushing back. It took just over an hour to arrive too.

Although it isn’t our ‘local’, my partner and I came across Church View unintentionally and have back on a number of occasions over the last few months. We've found it to be a lively and popular place and there is always a warm, friendly and welcoming atmosphere. It has an excellent choice of real ales, wines and spirits as well... More

Occasionally visit the Church View for the odd drink, as the hand pulled ales are really good. Not eaten there for a couple of years, but decided to try it for dinner on 24th June. When we ordered our food we were advised that it would take about 30 minutes for it to be delivered to our table. This turned... More

Went on a busy Saturday night. Waited ages and then one meal missing. That took another 20 mins. Food was lovely though.

I have ate at the Church View many times over the years and have always had a nice meal. This visit was the first time since the pub had undergone its most recent makeover and change of menu. On this occasion we had a large family get-together of 14 adults plus 3 toddlers on a Sunday afternoon in May. The... More

Came here as a group of 4 on a Saturday night. Busy, so food took ages. Staff all nice but rushed off their feet. An alright meal if you just want a cheap get together. Puddings where probably the best dish out of the 3 courses.

Having grown up around the corner from this place, it has and always will hold a place in my heart. I see memories all around the place and met some brilliant people there. You get what you pay for. Why complain that the food isn't Michelin star quality when you're paying £12 for two dishes? It just isn't a logical... More

Went for our dinner tonight and we were told when we ordered there was a wait in the food which we agreed to so we got some drinks and sat down. Starter arrived and it was lovely but then the wait for the main was exceptionally longer. Once it arrived my husbands mixed grill had mushrooms despite asking for none... More
