Has a lovely meal here. The early bird menu is amazing value. The chicken main is gorgeous. Then followed by a couple of cocktails in the bar downstairs. The venue is amazing but the food and service definitely make the place special.

14 happy people after decent food, lovely service and good beer. No hesitation at all in recommending The Church, although the joined-up ladies and gents toilets are a bit weird.

My husband and I had dinner here at 8:00 on a Wed night. The inside is beautiful and the music and dancers were great but the service was very slow and the food was ok. I would go back for drinks but not for dinner.
