Went here on good Friday after reading mostly favourable reviews. It was a cold miserable day and on arriving at the pub no fires lit and no heating on either. Was told by the Landlady that they dont put on heating after March! Food very average too. Will not return or recommend.

I stopped at the Churchill Arms after having been at a meeting in Cranbourne. The team at the pub made were friendly and fun to talk with and the food was served promptly and tasted great. A really good selection of local ales as well. I would definitely stop by again.
