My husband and I visited the Church last night and once again the whole experience was superb. It is always our go to place for special occasions as you can always be assured that the food, service and venue will never dissapoint. The short rib starter was one of the best I have ever had and I am now thinking... More

My husband booked a table for two here for my Birthday. It was a quiet Wednesday evening and was lovely. The Restaurant itself is set in a converted church and has a nice warm feel about it. The choice of food is good and we was asked by our waitress, Chloe, if we had any dietary requirements - something I... More

Took my mother here for lunch on a Tuesday. The food was outstanding as always. Special mention to the rise chocolate truffle dessert! Spectacular service from our waitress Megan. £120 for lunch for two is quite excessive, but this was a special occasion so we had the works. Would be nice to see it busier at lunchtime (3 tables of... More

They've done a great job converting this church into a restaurant. A nice bar area welcomes you and then walk through to the well presented restaurant area. The service was excellent, but that's where the good points end. The entrees and main courses sounded good on the menu but failed to live up to up to expectations. I had a... More

Went here to celebrate my daughter's birthday. Both food and service were faultless. Busy but not too busy. A beautiful old building which delivers 21st century expectations.

On arrival we were warmly greeted by the staff and seated at the bar, which was our choice, they were not able to provide a cocktail menu but the member of staff listed what they could do. We placed out order for food and wine but were not offered any further drinks. Once the started was ready we were taken... More

Had a great evening with family at Churches celebrating our wedding after returning from Thailand. The staff are great and night was handled very well. We were a party of 18 and would recommend this place for groups as well as couples.

Visited The Church, Northampton for a Saturday evening meal with friends. The restaurant was nearly full with at least two very large groups there. In summary: 1) Parking can be tricky. We used the British Heart Foundation Car Park (rightly or wrongly). 2) The Restaurant itself was a church and basically still looks like one. It is very clean and... More
