A truly unique drinking, dining and live music venue, The Church is a tastefully converted church building in the centre of town. Inside, there is a bright restaurant, a chic central bar area, while outside there is a tranquil terrace with its own bellini bar.

The Church menu is wonderfully diverse, and features everything from traditional British pub favourites through to stone-baked pizzas. Sharing platters of signature nachos and BBQ pulled pork fries are perfect for groups, moving on to hearty mains like pan-fried lamb rump and pie of the day. There are succulent hanging skewers with piri piri chicken and mixed seafood, gourmet burgers with inventive toppings, and succulent steaks too.

Sunday roasts are a popular tradition at The Church in Chester, serving up succulent roast meats, fresh seasonal veggies, rich gravy and Yorkshire puddings. Down at the elegant bar, the talented mixologists are on hand to prepare classic cocktails, recommend wine from the comprehensive list, and offer up international beers on tap.

A spectacular, atmospheric setting to enjoy versatile dining and eclectic live music, The Church is just 2 minutes' walk from the the Grosvenor Shopping Centre.

    Ive been before and it was excellent .. on a thursday.. this time we came on Sunday.. it was very quiet.. our booking was 6pm.. food was ok.. not as good as previously.. and we were reminded a few times that the kitchen shuts at 6pm. We did feel very rushed. I will visit again..but just not Sunday..

    We went to the church restaurant as a group of 8 and every single one of us loved it! We all had a different main meal and they all looked and tasted amazing! The music and atmosphere was great! The staff were friendly and helpful through out the night. I would 100% go back again and I have already recommended it to my friends.

    The venue is in a stand out location and the transformation from church to resto likewise. Booked for Sunday lunch and was surprised that there were so few people. Food was good - Sunday Roast - and excellent value. The service was variable depending on who was available. The wine arrived after my wife had started her first course, due to the one we ordered being found to be unavailable. We chose an alternative which was £2 more expensive and were pleased that the extra cost was not added to the bill. The Church is still advertised on Tastecard site as accepting the card on a Sunday but it does not. This was the second time in a couple of months that I found this out.

    This converted church is incredible and the main architectural features have been left to shine. The staff are friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. My only complaint was the uninteresting soggy salad. Surely these days limp lettuce should be a thing of the past. The food is usually excellent and this is the only visit when I have been disappointed.
