The Church View is a pleasant pub/diner not far from Widnes town centre and M62.Clean and bright it offers a good variety of food at the bargain price of two meals for £10 !
It can be busy as food is served all day and the offer is available at all times.we have
never waited too long for our meal and the staff are pleasant and helpful The food is typical (decently cooked) pubfood and we will be going again.

Visited The Church View on many occasions over the years. Recently, I been with family on one occasion and my partner on a couple of occasions.

I can honestly say on all visits the food has been good wholesome pub grub, nice portions and well presented. Can't go wrong with two meals for £10, however the service needs to improve. On one occasion it took 40 minutes for the main meals to arrive and another 20 minutes for the deserts to arrive. So not ideal, especially if you have young children to entertain whilst you wait.

One of our concerns is the over reserving of tables. On one occasion, there were 10 tables with reserved laminates on them, the time of reservation being for 7:00pm, bearing in mind, we had arrived at 6:00pm.

We promptly sat down at one of the tables and ordered our food. There were however other customers arriving and then leaving just as quickly, on discovering that the tables had all been reserved, (in total 17 couples and 2 families came and left in a 15 minute time period), this was well over £200 worth of list business).

The staff were very polite but maybe seemed a little experienced in some part.
The beer is good quality and real ale is also available.

All in all, a good family run pub, good affordable food, but service and the reservation issues need to be reviewed.

Will however be back very soon

the food was a great standard, however the service i found the staff a bit rude, they kept you standing at the bar as they chatted away to people who they knew, the staff and a few locals seem a bit clicky,, which is just rude, Also when you call to reserve a table they are rude over the phone to you, shame as the food is great

well after seing a few reviews , my family decided to try the place on the 29thMarch
and wont be going back , in a hurry the place is very nice and was fairly full ,
so some excuse for the service being slow but over an hour to get our meals was unexceptable
yes it was piping hot .
i had the steak pie and the microwave must have been working over time as the pie was bubbling and the crust was solid LOL
anyway the other family members enjoyed what they had up to a point .
to be honest the tables are to close together we were almost sitting on the other patrons knees when we sat down . the place is nice in side but the food very average the portions are ample though .
over all disapointing sorry cant recomend the place only as a last resort .
