Visited on Sunday. Car park looked empty. Lots of spare tables inside. But all bar two were reserved. As we didn't want to sit in a high table on a stool. We settled for a table near the door ( not great ). The menu cards were actually dirty !! Chose our food and went to order , one lady... More

Friends and i went to the Church View on sunday to sample their roast dinners, delicious! Beautifully roasted beef with fresh roasted potato's. The veg was finely cooked and the meal vibrant and well presented. The only drawback was the gravy was overly thick and the plate was cold, otherwise a very pleasant dining experience.

we have been to the church view on a number of occasions, but the recent revamp has made a great improvement. The bar now has eight real ales and a couple of draught ciders. The menu is smaller but the quality of the food is much improved, the venison and root veg pie was outstanding. Staff as always welcoming and... More

3 of us went for an early Saturday evening meal. Although most of the tables had "reserved" on them, in each case it stated clearly the reservation time. This made it easy to find a table, knowing that we would be gone before the reservation time. Good system! Everywhere was clean. The service was friendly. We each ate different dishes.... More

Only decided to visit here as we couldn't get in anywhere else on a Saturday teatime. We were really impressed by the new décor, it feels very fresh and modern and lots of space between tables which is nice. All the tables were reserved when we arrived but the reserved signs showed the times that the tables were reserved from... More

Lively & a bit noisy. Just been revamped so pretty nice inside. Friends told me about this place said food was good! Personally I'd say it was one up on a Witherspoons & that's about it really.
