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

Well this is a great use of an old church, but it would make an even better club 😁 Food was on point and affordable but the service left something to wish for as the waiter forgot our starter. And when we ordered some bread to go with the main we ended up waiting in vain and finishing the food... More

It has been several years since my last meal at the church as first time round I thought the food was over priced. Went for a valentines meal with the hubby and whilst the restaurant itself is very nice with a good ambience once again I just thought it was overpriced for what was served. It was a set valentines... More
