We visit the Church inn most Sundays and always get a good reception and the food is always good and hot.we would highly recommend this pub for a visit if your in the area. Also very good value at 2 carverys for £12.

We go to this pub quite frequently, beer is good with selection of Real Ales, also the food is always fresh and tasty. We are veggie, and always have a reasonable choice. Their veggie pies and curry are excellent!
