About the Pub

The Church is a long established and busy community local, now with an increased focus on food and guest beers. It stands next to the Norman church of St Michael’s and looks very much like a typical country pub, although it is on the fringe of a large and well developed urban area. Over the years the pub has expanded almost seamlessly into adjacent cottages.

One downside of its long history is that access for anyone using a wheelchair is well nigh impossible, with steps at both entrances and awkward, narrow corridors to the toilets. Those that can get in find it a friendly and busy pub with a variety of different spaces inside, reflecting the small rooms of the original cottages. Entering from the church, there are two small areas off to the left and a larger space to the right, which tend to be used by diners.

The bar runs along the back wall. Further along to the right there is an odd-shaped space broken up by remnants of interior walls and staircases. This is generally the serious drinkers' area. It has an exit to the car park and the toilet block.

Cask ales have always been important at the Church and the present managers make the most of their ability to pick interesting and unusual beers from small independent breweries. When surveyed the bar featured Blackedge Brewer’s Gold, RedWillow Stateless and Acorn Yorkshire Pride alongside the more mainstream Sharp’s Doom Bar. The beers tend to be of session strength and from North of England breweries but they are never predictable. Card-carrying CAMRA members can claim a 10% discount on cask beers.

Don’t miss the pub’s "mystery object", the so-called Shell. This is a strange and antique piece of ironmongery, attached to the corner formed by the pub wall and the wall of the churchyard. It’s been there for at least a century and is thought to be a deterrent to anyone tempted to use that semi-sacred corner as a pissoir, to borrow a French term.

Tuesday is Poker Night. Wednesday is Open Mike Night. There are quizzes on Thursday and Sunday nights.
