Three of us went for lunch today. Two meals arrived, after twice requesting third it arrived 15 minutes later. A non spicy Chili which tasted stewed not really worth the wait. Go for the view and a drink then you won't be disappointed

Had lunch in the Churchillian today, lovely atmosphere with great staff. Baguettes are such good value and generous portions. Decor has greatly improved since last visit to. Would defiantly recommend a visit.

It is clear the The Churchillian is going through a refurbishment program albeit slowly! There are more toilets in the Ladies, the windows are being repaired and it has been redecorated. I understand the function has been overhauled and ready for bookings. We visited not long ago and found very little choice on the new menu and no Specials......I had... More

The views are great and the food is improving from our last visit but the pub is still tired looking and the tables feel sticky. The food itself was actually better than the reviews would give credit for and I'll still head back for another lunch, just wish they'd wipe down the tables better, and take away the empty plates.

This pub seems to be relying on its location even more nowadays. We have visited from time to time over many years and this was the most disappointing visit. Even though a quiet time(just after opening) the table was sticky. Food not great and just warm. The pub is tired looking and unclean in places, particularly the loos and their... More

I went with a few friends for a birthday. I was looking forward to the new function room up stairs, which the event was held. I'd like to say my overall experience was brilliant - the atmosphere in the venue was top notch, we had a lot of laughs. Additionally, the food was very nice, served well by the staff,... More

Visited the Churchillian on a Wowcher offer Friday night 31/10/14. Had been before, although not for a year or so. Arrived at 7.30 and place less than half full. Surprised to be informed that mains choices limited to gammon and eggs, cod and chips or 'creamy carbonara', chicken extra for £2. (Not sure what would be in that dish without... More

I never write or read reviews as I find half the time it's just someone wanting to moan about everything and everyone but..... After going for a meal at the churchillian on a Thursday evening with 8 family members I felt like I had to. It's was lovely! The food was very good and came out just 15 minutes after... More
