A beautiful venue, the food is good and well presented. Excellent Java Republic coffee and tea. Not too great for accessibility if you are a wheelchair user due to narrow church doors at entrance plus steps, but there is outside seating. Staff are attentive and polite. Overall a good choice for a lunchtime meal that is a bit more special than the usual run of the mill. Great for impressing a business client.

Dinner for four (2 starters, 4 mains, and 4 deserts) was very good value, well cooked and equally well presented. We were seated in the gallery which was bright and airy, and the stained glass windows added a wonderful atmosphere.

We had good, fast service here during morning coffee, prices not too expensive. The real star is the converted church interior. Simply stunning!

This restaurant, located in a building that was actually a church at one time, offered food and service that was absolutely fantastic. All for a very reasonable price. I would highly recommend paying a visit to this establishment if you are staying anywhere close or just passing through. Our group ordered five different dishes, each were of a remarkably high standard in terms of taste and presentation. Would happily visit again.
