“One of the better bar/restaurants I've ever been in”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

The church was awsome. It has kept the Church-feeling but at the same invested enough time and money to create a greate venue for pretty much everything. We ate at the Mezzanine, which was absolutely perfect, especially after the music came on and created a great atmosphere. Food was also very good and the service none the less.

I see that everybody else reports about live music which we didn't have on our evening (at least not after I arrived), but I hope that our night the Saturday 16th of March was not just a glimpse. Live music is great, especially at the early hours, but it was really the DJ in the bar that made the night for our group of about 40 people. The DJ in the night club was not that good, but the place itself was ok although overcrowded.

“Great Restaurant - Brilliant Staff!”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

We recently hosted 50 European delegates for a conference as part of the EU Presidency. We booked them into The Church for dinner and Una, Martin and all their staff were fantastic. They were very helpful and made my job so much easier. The delegates loved the food, the staff, the decor, the music and the atmosphere. Out of my 50 delegates not a single one had a complaint! Thanks a million and job well done, folks!
