    The food was excellent, The service was efficient. But the noise from diners at a nearby table was excessive and made normal conversation impossible for us. It is to be hoped that such vulgarians will be banned from Church Road for the future. I will certainly not be making future bookings if there is a risk that the same vulgar and inconsiderate people will be present. They were not merely loud, but produced constant hysterical female squealing at high volume. Not what one expects in a civilised up-market restaurant. Don Gorman

    Welcoming atmosphere and service attentive. Delicious lunch of three courses. I am interested in food so it has to be good! It was good all round. The set lunch was good value.

    We came early and were looked after and served promptly. Church Road is a real treat, the food is excellent and very reasonably priced. I mentioned in the booking that my wife needed to be gluten free, and they had clearly read the note and responded with suggestion when we sat down! Truly fine dining, excellent service throughout, local and at a reasonable price - always a treat!!!

    Wonderful service and great food - Full dining room with a buzzy atmosphere. We sat in the bar waiting for our table - as we were early- and that was fun .

    Sadly it was not a good experience, albeit we have been before but it was under a different name. We arrived at 14.30 and got served our mains at 16.30. They did not have a children’s menus which was fine but as we ordered from the main menu but it took 1hr to arrive even tho we ordered as soon as we were seated. The roast diner was very good but the gentlemen went home hungry as there were only 2 very thin slices of beef. We then ordered our daughter ice cream asked for it to be brought right away again after 30 minutes her grandfather got very upset and asked why is it taking so long to bring out ice cream. The waitress was extremely apologetic, she was very professional and polite and it took less than a minute for her to get it out. (she was wearing a brown beige uniform) Sadly we will not be returning as the service does not reflect the price.

    Beautiful decor - really amazing food . I had a wonderful pork chop with sweet and sour sauce but envied the monkfish tail with pesto and tomatoes . The figs looked fab but I resisted . Next time I won’t ! A special place for a meal out .
