This stunning 12th century building opened as The Church Bar & Restaurant in 2005 and is now considered one of the most exceptional venues in Northamptonshire. Formerly known as St John's Church, a Grade 1 listed and the oldest secular building in Northampton, this uniquely historic building is a warm and inviting refuge - located right in the town centre, offering fabulous food at outstanding value in a warm, friendly and relaxed environment - fine dining at its relaxed and mouth-watering best. From the moment you step into The Church, there is an undeniable sense of elegance and ambience awaiting you. From hugely high ceilings to awe-inspiring features and sensitive style – every lovely thing has been accentuated and nothing ruined. Take a seat in The Chapel Bar - the perfect place for an informal drink with friends, pre-theatre glass of bubbly or an afternoon coffee. By day, the sunlight streams though the beautiful stained glass window behind the bar and by night it glitters in candlelight. The main floor hosts The Restaurant, where guests can choose from a diverse collection of dishes and gourmet treats – all prepared using the freshest ingredients. For an elevated view, without a doubt The Mezzanine is the best place to view the restaurant in its full glory. Whether you are having lunch or a three course meal this is the perfect location to soak up the spectacular views of this historical building from above. During the warmer months, the terrace provides the ideal spot for a summer social gathering or simply somewhere to relax with a drink and watch the world go by.
