The refurb has improved this lovely looking pub which is within walking distance from many housing estates. However, the addition of upholstered 'woollen type' fabric seating does is not ideal as there is often spilt gravy and stains on the seats, which is off-putting if you've got light clothes on.

Visited the Church View with the wife for tea on 8th August. Not packed by any means, and we received our meals after a half hour wait. The food was nicely presented, hot and tasty, and we were served by a nice and friendly young waitress. While I have heard some gripes about the food here, I have never heard... More
