Visited The Church around 6 pm on Thursday night; already packed with no hope of a table in the restaurant, so the six of us ate in the bar huddled around a just-large-enough table. Bar menu was, well, typical bar food--uninspired to say the least; 5 of our group went for the fish and chips for that reason. Most seemed to like it, but personally, I much preferred the fish from Lyme's Fish Bar in Lyme Regis, which I'd had the week prior. Nice apple pie, nice brownie desserts, nice Irish coffee. From other reviews, seems like the better food is in the restaurant, so book ahead.
The setting is fantastic: former church in good condition, with organ still there. You can walk around and read the commemoration stones on the walls. Interesting.
Because of the setting (all hard surfaces and high ceilings), it's EXTREMELY noisy in there, so be prepared. I'd say it's most worth visiting for a drink, to experience the location. Food is probably better and cheaper elsewhere. I've rated The Church "very good" because of our party's general approval of the meal, and for the interesting setting.
