The Church View is a nice country style pub in Widnes. The offer of two meals for £10 is quite a good offer. For traditional pub food, it is better than the local Wetherspoons. Being out of town makes it a more of a restaurant. It is always packed and it does take a while to be served at the... More

We went here as a group of 8 following a visit to the cemetery. We were refused a tab for our drinks and after queuing to order meals were told that because they were short staffed we could not have the meal deal. We were made to feel as though we were a nuisance and ended up going down the... More

Visited this pub with friends on Saturday 26th July for a meal. Orderedfood for 9 people, and waited about 45 minutes to receive the starters. While we were waiting we noticed a disco setting up which we thought a bit strange for a local pub. When it started the music was that loud that we had to shout to be... More

Typical pub food but presented well and cooked very well. The staff are helpful and friendly always ready to have a word or a smile. The waiting staff sound as the mean it when they ask if everything is OK with your meal, unlike some places were it is just a phrase the have to use. The beer is always... More

Haven't been here for many years but will be coming back again. We usually have our pub meals in a chain which offers cheapest of 2 meals free but the Church View has an extensive 2 for £10 and the quality of the meals we had were infinitely superior to anything we'd had in a pub for years. Nice ambiance... More

Food was cooked ok, but small portions, we picked the large meals at 2 for £15 but they were still small, the 2 for £10 are pensioner or child sized. Burgers looked a fair size. Drinks were expensive £4.85 for a small 125cl white wine. Service was very slow, removing empty plates was even slower, some 2 drinks later plates... More

If you go here lunch times for drink only you have no chance of getting served as the staff are not interested in bar only food.
