Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

    We visit the Church Mouse regularly, it's one of the best restaurants near us for a meal out with the family. Our visit last Saturday was all we expected it to be, good food at reasonable prices, in pleasant and comfortable surroundings.

    Booked for Sunday lunch and we really enjoyed it. All 7 of us selected the Subday lunch but some had beef, chicken or pork, I had the turkey which I really enjoyed. You get a vegetable plate per 2 and you can order additional cauliflower cheese if you wish. Service was attentive but not too much. Even though restaurant was busy we waited max 20 mins for food.

    Good food, excellent service and a lovely atmosphere. The reason I didn't give it a 5 star rating wa that both my favourite desserts were finished

    We booked for dinner (7.30pm) for my son's 21st Birthday - I mentioned this in the online reservation. My husband and son had to return home to fetch his ID Card which delayed our meal by 30 minutes. This was disppointing and rather frustrating given the snow!
