Stoke on Trent's finest English Restaurant Dining Experience

The owner Diane McDaid instigated the project in Nov 2006 when she purchased the building. The project initially was to centre on making full use of this historic building and ensuring it's future in keeping with the regeneration of Stoke-on-Trent. She wanted to retain the property as one of great local interest whilst ensuring its commercial viability. A former owner of an English restaurant and with 20 years experience in the food industry, Diane developed the vision for a fine dining experience at affordable prices so that the Church could become once again a place for people to meet and enjoy its wonderful architecture.

The result is an establishment where modern and old mix well in its interior design, offering a relaxed atmosphere and maintaining many original features.

The food and service prerequisites were already set in Diane's mind. She resorted to old style traditional values where food was of the best quality, sourced locally, served by polite helpful staff with lots of theatre. Diane opened the restaurant as Head Chef but quickly recruited Mark to take on this important responsibility and together with a team comprising three additional chefs, and three kitchen porters. The recipes and menus were Diane's creations and she continues to act as executive chef. The 15 strong front of house team are made up of young and old, male and female, all with one intention in mind, quality of service to ensure that guests have a truly enjoyable experience.

The lounge bar was created offering deep leather sofas with a warm and inviting decor, designed as a place to relax for diners and non diners alike. Disco music is played every Friday and Saturday until late, making the whole experience a complete night out for guests to enjoy. The aim was to create a venue that is beyond the ordinary; a unique experience that appeals to all.
