The Church View is a nice clean and welcoming pub with plenty of choice behind the bar and on the food menu unfortunately I would only rate the food as average at the most.

We had a guest from abroad and wanted to take them to a typical English local pub. Chose the Church View over the Observatory and Four Topped Oak. I had booked online so approached the bar to let staff know we had arrived and to find out where our table was. Was ignored by one member of staff and another... More

We originally tried to get into the Four topped oak, but on entering was told meal orders were over 1 hour wait, so we decided to go to the Church View instead - that was a good move. From start to finish everything was excellent, seated quickly, order taken promptly, drinks very good, very clean eating area. I had the... More

I visited with family including my sister who is a celiac sufferer. The menu does not indicate what is suitable for people with this condition. The bar staff had no knowledge and gave my sister what I call a product information guide to read through. The last thing you want to do when out with family you rarely see. She... More

Call in for a meal from time to time. Pleasant, Comfortable and a good beer selection. Food is ok, chain pub formula food. Moderate price. Staff pleasant . Hence a call once or twice a month.

Had a refurb not so long back and still looks good. Came here after a disaster at the four topped oak. A little pricey but you do get what you pay for ! Good good and good ale, had to wait a little for the right table for 4 of us but not too long. Will use again definatly.

Thank TheEricRebo
