Came here for a catch up with a friend. Plenty to choose from and reasonably priced. We chose braised steak and Lamb which were both excellent. Then the dessert trolley arrived!!! Amazing choices. Do have a coffee..it arrives in a little silver set. The guys who served us were lovely. Will definitely come here again.

Staff - Rude, offensive, inappropriate and disgraceful! No time for customers and not willing to listen to complaints or criticism Food - Tasteless. Bland. Starters still frozen, sent back and returned still... More

We were very happy with two of our meals, but the waiter did not take the correct order for the third person's meal. They responded well to catering for a special diet, but did not take all the details down so we had to ask again for something. The coffee was unpleasant, bitter and cheap-tasting. I told the staff that... More

On arrival, we were told that the chef had just clocked off for the evening. However, seeing our disappointment the host, Gary offered to cook our meals... More

Christening meal at The Church in Hanley. Firstly, family members congregated downstairs in the bar area. Serves real/craft ales in bottles so thats a good starting point. ✔ Into the restaurant upstairs, the first thing I notice is the room was initially very cold (it is an old chuch after all!) and a cold draft on my back (this was...
