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

Hadn't visited for a while now after a fairly average experience in the past. And sadly once again, this place continues to underwhelm. Beautiful surroundings, with one of the best bar areas I've ever seen as you enter the building, and a nicely laid out dining area, all housed under the eaves of the original building. But what they serve... More

Had a lovely dinner here with my partner and our friend. We booked for early Saturday evening via their website, and had a lovely round table with plenty of space in the wonderful surroundings of the old church. We were staying locally for the weekend and had researched Gluten Free dining in Northampton, and Church came highly recommended. And with... More

Happened upon this restaurant by sheer luck.Only wish we hadn't been limited to time, as my husband and I were on a night out to the theatre and we were looking for somewhere to eat beforehand. Really lovely surroundings, atmosphere and fantastic food, can't wait to go back! Hoping to take the family for my birthday, very soon!!

What an atmosphere! An old church lovingly and respectfully turned in to a fantastic restaurant. The massive stained glass window lit behind the bar. The bare walls showing the old building and all of their glory. This is a high class restaurant, from the welcome to the service at the table. Great service and fantastic food chosen from a menu...

Usually restaurants that serve meat as well as veggie and vegan food make a pretty mediocre job of both the choices and the quality of the vegan and veggie food, but this is not the case at The Church. While it would be nice to see a few more vegan and veggie options on the menu, the quality of the... More

This is an established and popular restaurant in Northampton. The building is quite stunning and very atmospheric. On a Saturday night, the place was busy and we enjoyed a drink in the bar before being shown to our table. The service was very good and we enjoyed our starters. The main courses were fine, although I felt my lamb dish... More

Built in 1138 this former church underwent a complete transformation into a spectacular bar and dining room.

The Church Restaurant is now considered one of the most exceptional dining establishments in Northamptonshire and offers traditional home-cooked food at outstanding value in a warm, friendly and informal environment.
