My wife and I went to the Church View for a meal. We heard it was dog friendly so took our new puppy along to socialise him. The staff were very helpful, other visitors to the pub were also friendly and helpful. The dog friendly area is the hard surface flooring so about half the pub is carpeted. We were... More

Not been In a while due to the fact the menu is a joke, last time we tried to order wine and snacks which weren't available, this was due to the manager only returning for annual holiday that day apparently :( So today we went again with the dog with the hope it's better. Sadly no the first thing I... More

This place lost its way over the last few years but the meal I have recently had was great, it has been refurbished since I least went and the food is much much better. If you haven't been here recently try it again you will be surprised

Over two weeks ago I ordered a pint of beer here. It was a glass with a handle. It was less than 90% full and asked for it be topped up. This was refused saying it was an oversize glass so it held more than a pint. I was suspicious as oversized glasses have to have a mark showing where... More

We were stopping off in Widnes while dropping off our son to uni. This pub was within walking distance of our hotel. It was very busy when we came in on spec but we got a table. The menu is pretty extensive and we went for burger, steak and a flatbread. We were told it would be an hour as... More

I don't live in this area, so I was hoping to find a hidden gem. Unfortunately, this did not happen. There is absolutely no reason to go to this pub, only if you like bad customer service and very average food. The older blonde woman serving in the pub, is in the wrong job or needs retraining in customer service.... More

Myself and my husband visited the Church View Pub recently and we were utterly disgusted at the customer service we received from who we believe is the manager . The gentlemen I am speaking about has a beard with dark hair . We have been coming here every Saturday evening for the last 20 years and have always thoroughly enjoyed... More

Had not been for about 3 years...surprised to see it had been refurbed. Very busy place but sadly it is basically a restaurant now and not really a pub. There were 3 very old guys sitting in the corner just having drinks..i felt sorry for them as this must have been their local for many years where they would while... More

just passing and called in for something to eat and drink. Found the menu's to be varied and the prices to be very attractive. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was excellent (we tried one of the platters each - fabulous) I can recommend the "Fried Pickles" as these were a fabulous extra Definitely worth a...
