It remains the place to go if you have only one meal to eat in Stratford and want it to be a spectacular experience. - Toronto Star
Opening its' doors as a restaurant in 1975, the Church Restaurant has been a tradition in dining ever since. The philosophy of this establishment is quite clear; treat each ingredient with respect, treat each guest with sincerity, understand the vision and execute flawlessly.
The dedication to local and organic produce is an important focus of The Church Restaurant. Quality is not negotiable. In fact, should a fantastic ingredient present itself without notice, the kitchen is devoted to optimizing the opportunity while spontaneously indulging in a new addition to the menu!
The Church Restaurant takes great pride in the quality of the dining experience.
The menu evolving every six weeks speaks to the determination and innovation of the kitchen. The wine list is constantly reviewed in an effort to provide the ultimate wine pairing, enhancing each meticulously prepared dish. Whether a social night out or a romantic dinner for two, the service is customized to your individual needs. The attention of each member of this team is focused on the guest from the moment they arrive until the next time.
The historical importance of this building is felt immediately
upon entering the restaurant and although it once was a place
of worship, the peaceful, relaxed and inviting aroma are a
direct reflection of Mark Craft, Proprietor, Robb Beavis,
Restaurant Manager and their entire team. It is their greatest
desire that each guest feel like their only guest!
The fact remains that you don't need a special event or celebration to come to The Church - the dining experience alone IS the event.
Your neighbourhood restaurant is now presented perfectly.
