Went for a meal with my fiancé to The Church on Saturday 9th February 2013.
Arrived at around 7:30pm, we were asked to wait in the bar, ordered drinks. £7 is reasonable for a large glass of Rosé and a beer. After a very short wait, we were informed our table was ready. We were placed in a corner table next to the radiator which meant that we were both very warm during the meal but this didn't spoil the experience too much.
For our starters, I ordered the flambé king prawn which was absolutely delicious - I really liked how the chef stood near the table and asked if I wanted garlic, chilli etc, if I wanted the shell taken off, so it was cooked how I wanted it. My fiancé had haddock with poached egg which he said was lovely although he did get a few tiny bones in his mouth from it.
Main course for both of us was a sirloin steak with blue cheese sauce, this came with chips, tomato, mushroom, salad etc. My fiancé was happy with how his was cooked as he asked for medium-well, I asked for medium but felt my steak was a bit overcooked. This is probably down to my preference as if I order medium-rare in a lot of restaurants it comes out too rare so on this occasion I did ask for medium. I was not very impressed with the chips either which were obviously frozen chips. I have been told by others that they do usually do fresh chips so maybe they had just ran out on this occasion. I would probably go back to see if this is the case as the food was very nice, or perhaps order the king prawns for my main rather than starter.
We both had a dessert of the chocolate 'rumpy pumpy' which was to die for!
All in all, the meal came to £51 due to the king prawn starter and steaks having a supplement as well as ordering a dessert, we felt this was a fair price as the service throughout was very good without being too obtrusive or ignorant at any point. As said above, I would probably go back again, perhaps on a Tuesday as they do a 3-course dinner and Tarot reading for £22 which I would like to try.
