This is the regular lunchtime pub and restaurant of a local company which I visit five or six times a year and we always manage to fit in a visit to The Churchill (probably because I usually pick up the tab).

There is a good selection of proper beer and the food, from quite an extensive menu, has always been uniformly excellent. I always wish I hadn't so much to do in the afternoon, so that I could enjoy something more substantial than my usual light meal without the risk of falling asleep, but my fellow diners have no such inhibition and 'fill their boots' as they would say.

The service has always been friendly, helpful and efficient and the prices are what I would expect to pay in this type of establishment.

The reason for the title of this piece is that there are distinct areas here, where children can play, where people can just eat and drink quietly or where small groups can sit around a fireplace and watch a large television, if that is their thing. These areas seem to be well-contained so that, for example, the television or excitable children are not a distraction to those in other areas. Well, all right, me.

I have no idea what The Churchill is like in the evenings, but every lunchtime visit has been a pleasure, so well done them.

Great place for children so go later to avoid the noise if you don't have children with you. Staff friendly and food good.

Have visited this restaurant many times now ( not by choice) and have yet to have a decent meal. It seems to me when they are busy all food seems be reheated by microwave. Last meal I had Poached egg in the starter was hard boiled not runny. Chips are mostly undercooked and soggy. That's it for me will not be visiting again.

Just visited The Churchill - surprisingly quiet when we arrived. Nice meal, served quite promptly - a bonus was that having ordered two grill meals, we were entitled to a free bottle of wine as it was Grill Night!! Just a shame that we had to ask for the wine, rather than it being offered when our order was taken. Reasonable value for pub grub.
