We called at short notice, and had the most delicious lasagne we have had anywhere in the UK. The food was well presented by courteous staff. Charming bar, plenty of interesting period items on the wall.

We arrived before opening time but the landlord welcomed us and opened the bar so we could be comfortable. Great fresh homemade Italian food with a difference.

The Bonchurch inn is a lovely family run pub, Adrian's special pizza is one of the best pizza I have ever had and the lasagne is superb! I cannot recommend this place enough!
