“Sunday lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

Food quite good, but spoilt by service,very slow even though lots of staff and not very busy,
asked for my sons main course with our starters but didn't arrive until we had finished, then after
main course had to wait another thirty minutes for desert, far to long especially with children.

“A real gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

I live close to this pub so visit it on a regular basis. It can be a little expensive if you go a la carte but if you go for the early bird special before 6.30 you are onto a real winner. Two courses for £7.95 and no skimping on the portions either. The pub is in a really nice area as it is but inside you would think you are in Devon or the Cotswolds. Service is slick and the ambiance brilliant. They also have a fab covered outside area with flat screen TV so you can enjoy a drink whilst watching football if that's what takes your fancy.

“Excellent food & service in olde worlde pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

This was our first visit to the Church Inn & how memorable it was for wide variety of menu items including specials, the presentation & quality of the food plus speed of service.
Really could not be faulted. This was the best meal we have had in the UK for quite sometime. We will be back & will recommend.

“GREAT FOOD IN A SUPERB PUB”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

Went here last night. Third time in last 6 months, ^ of us. Again superb food. Great value. Excellent attentive service. Used to go to "The Church" 20 odd years ago, still live fairly close, but busy life, then some friends got a Groupon deal in June. Lovely. Hence 3 visits. Arrive for 8pm friday night - absolutely heaving !! went to our reserved table. Superd food. How on earth they constantly produce high quality, when so busy, is a credit to them. Well done - again !!
