Went this venue a few years ago and it is fair to say I wasn't impressed at all. Standard microwaved pub slop with tired decor. Didn't bother going back.... What a difference new owners and a refurbishment makes. Been twice in two weeks and had the same meal (Mixed Grill is superb) and my wife had chicken pie first time... More

I have always liked The Church View and it is an ideal meeting place for our family as central to all of us. Love the new look and no problem with food although definitely not a gastro pub. However, it is so frustrating trying to order food as you have to queue at same place as for drinks. Not a... More

Had been to this place several times before it had been taken over and the food had always been spot on, apart from 1 time... but we forgave them for that... so decided to give it a go now it had been given a new fresh face and menu. Menu looked amazing... great choices available! We opted for the combo... More

Visited with my girlfriend sarah and had a mixed grill and hunters chicken. Rump steak cooked to perfection, coming from a chef! Everything else on the plate was perfect. Left very happy with a discount too. Great value. Friendly staff, will be there next payday too! 5/5!

Called in on Saturday for lunch with visiting friend. We were all impressed with the choice available and the quality of the food and service. The new decor gives the place a nice feel too. We are planning a little family celebration soon and now we have the venue.

Well I like to be positive in my reviews but I can only say I was happy with the company....I brought them with me! If you just fancy a dessert then definitely go but not if you want to pop in and out again these people on a slow and steady philosophy it seems. We wanted to have a relaxed... More

Called for the 1st time since its facelift and got to say it has improved. Very busy but I got served quickly, but could probably do with more staff as others did have to wait longer. The staff were very friendly and very efficient but run off their feet. Food was good and I will be going back, it has... More

We had a really nice lunch here with a friend and was impressed to say the least. We're far from fine diners, but have had our fair share of fine dining experiences here or there. But this was more than what I expected from a local pub in a large town like Widnes. On first impression the decor was really... More
