We have not ate at the Church View for about 8 years and after a recommendation from a friend, we went for a meal on Saturday evening and the food was lovely. We were told their would be a 40 minute wait on our food due to how busy it was but our food arrived after about 20 minutes. We... More

Tried this refurbed pub but not happy with a few things such as poor seating and drab decor which I guess is supposed to be trendy? Food fairly good. Also bought drinks at bar and ordered and paid for food and I carried drinks to my table. Paid for by credit card and machine requested if I wished to leave... More

Big fan of All Inns...2 for 1 on most main meals (cheapest one free) food has a standard and the Church View doesn't disappoint.... meals are reasonably priced and as long as YOU are clear in ordering (how you like things cooked etc) then the food is good and value for money (doesn't break the bank) well behaved children welcome...

I'm not a fussy eater, but this is the worst pub meal i have ever had. The veg was very over boiled , limp and soggy. The pie crust was rock hard and with little content. The gravy was cold and congealed. I poked the food around and finally gave up. The service is a joke. Waited at least 40... More

Food much dearer but no better quality than before. Refurb quite uncomfortable. Stools or sofas to share with strangers.

Visited here last week and was largely unimpressed. After ordering drinks at the bar I waited 20 minutes for a latte, finally after reminding staff twice they brought it over. The food was decidedly average and we waited a further 30 minutes for desserts. The decor is appealing unfortunately everything else requires improvement.
