We originally tried to get into the Four topped oak, but on entering was told meal orders were over 1 hour wait, so we decided to go to the Church View instead - that was a good move. From start to finish everything was excellent, seated quickly, order taken promptly, drinks very good, very clean eating area. I had the... More

I visited with family including my sister who is a celiac sufferer. The menu does not indicate what is suitable for people with this condition. The bar staff had no knowledge and gave my sister what I call a product information guide to read through. The last thing you want to do when out with family you rarely see. She... More

Sweet potato chips and onion rings very average ( pkt... More

Call in for a meal from time to time. Pleasant, Comfortable and a good beer selection. Food is ok, chain pub formula food. Moderate price. Staff pleasant . Hence a call once or twice a month.

Had a refurb not so long back and still looks good. Came here after a disaster at the four topped oak. A little pricey but you do get what you pay for ! Good good and good ale, had to wait a little for the right table for 4 of us but not too long. Will use again definatly.

We went here last night and it was very disappointing. No food on due to kitchen problem. Lots of beers unavailable. Pub empty so no atmosphere. Will give it a miss for a while so they can sort themselves out.

My wife and I went to the Church View for a meal. We heard it was dog friendly so took our new puppy along to socialise him. The staff were very helpful, other visitors to the pub were also friendly and helpful. The dog friendly area is the hard surface flooring so about half the pub is carpeted. We were... More

Not been In a while due to the fact the menu is a joke, last time we tried to order wine and snacks which weren't available, this was due to the manager only returning for annual holiday that day apparently :( So today we went again with the dog with the hope it's better. Sadly no the first thing I... More

This place lost its way over the last few years but the meal I have recently had was great, it has been refurbished since I least went and the food is much much better. If you haven't been here recently try it again you will be surprised
