Have often eaten lunch here when on shopping trips to the Willows nearby, and rate it very highly. As a result yesterday held Mum in Laws Wake in their upper room after a Torquay Crematorium funeral [only 10-13 minutes drive away]. Superb high tea at very reasonable cost. Waitress service was exemplary and friendly, even to suggesting and supplying doggy... More

After reading the reviews on this pub we thought we'd give it a try to celebrate our wedding anniversary, as we are in the area. Well to say we weren't disappointed is an understatement. From the moment we walked in to leaving at the end of a wonderful evening, we received the most friendly attentive service by every one of... More

We haven't visited the Church House for a couple of years and were looking to have a Sunday lunch to celebrate a special occasion but wanted something different than the usual Sunday lunch that you can find in any number of hotels and pubs around here. The Church House did not disappoint. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the... More

We had a really warm welcome as soon as we walked through the door, as first time visitors that was especially nice and set the seen for the evening. The food was really good and not silly prices.

After sample the wines for a couple of nights we decided to book a table. Lovely atmosphere. Warm glowing fire. Red wine served at correct temperature! I had a lovely tasty mushroom risotto and my partner had a nice breaded pork loin. The meal was good but we didn't feel it was exceptional. Would recommend it especially for the ambience.

This is the third time this year that we have eaten at Church house . This time for a family celebration. The cooking is really quite exceptional and has been at this standard for every visit. The presentation of the dishes is beautiful and all of them have some nice flavour touches. When a whole table starts to discuss what... More

What an amazing place this is! Quality food, fine dining, great service and good prices. The tiny, twisty road getting to it adds to the evening. Well done! Highly recommended!!
