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.

    Place is lovely really busy especially with young people! Booked for a table for 8 was shown to a tiny table really maximum for 6 squashed 4 people on each bench, good enough we were moved quickly once I asked. Gotthe feeling they already knew table was too small! Waited ages for drinks but food came quickly, mixed reviews on that some said lovely, some dry meat etc. Ordered another round of drinks complete with virgin cocktail for my heavily pregnant daughter, cocktail came complete alcohol!! Waited ages for a replacement. Worst part I had an email that said table was ours until 10:45 we were asked to vacate at 10:20.after waiting so long for drinks etc this was poor. After pointing this out to lady who asked us to leave she just looked at her friend saying she was new to the restaurant.
    After a 280 pound bill felt service and experience very poor.

    It was the second visit I made with my girlfriend and it once again was absolutely fantastic, the food was amazing, the cocktails were very nice and the general atmosphere was really nice.
    Overall we thoroughly enjoyed Church and would recommend it to others.

    Excellent service. Food lovely, wine lovely. Prices also good.
    Building is just stunning.
    Lovely environment. Only suggestion I would make wood b to make the tables for 2 slightly bigger as when food arrives, if you have water and wine on the table then there is not much space but it certainly would not put me off .

    Took my brother and sister in law as a treat, on arrival was very rudely spoken to, by the bouncer person,asked if my son had ID, he said he couldn't come in without it, I said he was with us and doesn't drink anyway, he carried on at us, and eventually said unless your eating he can't enter, I told him we had a table booked...he allowed us in, why not politely ask us first, are you having a meal...not impressed at all.

    Buttermilk chicken was perfectly cooked, more than enough Cajun fries to go with it and the Katsu curry sauce was amazing. Good fun watching the bar staff below too making cocktails and generally having fun

    The whole dining experience was most enjoyable. The food was perfect and more importantly the staff were amazing. So friendly, helpful and the service was spot on as they made our lunch time booking memorable. Will definitely be booking again and again. Thank you all.
