“Little improvements needed”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

Myself and my sisters went for breakfast here, the pub itself is very nice, we sat by the open fire which was lovely and warm on such a cold morning. We ordered food which didn't take too long to come out however when it did all of it was pretty much cold, I had the pouched egg which tasted purely of vinegar which was a shame as they were cooked perfectly and my sisters bacon looked like it had come out the pack straight to the plate...
When we went to the bar to order some more drinks we were ignored for a good 10 minutes, there was no one else waiting...just us as the staff walked back and forth like we were not there!
Just small things really that could make the place perfect, warm food and better customer service

“Excellent restaurant, please visit!”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

I have been to the Churchill several times, especially when heading home from shopping in Swindon, and every visit has been worth it!. There is always plenty of parking and I am always greeted with smiles from the staff on arrival. There is plenty of choice on the menus and the prices are extremely reasonable for the quality and quantity of food that is served. The food is always served hot and presentable. The interior is impressive and the atmosphere has always been lively and jolly on all of my visits. I always feel welcomed and comfortable. Defiantly worth a visit!

“A Good Place for a Get Together”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

We attended The Churchill for our Grandson's 4th Birthday, our first ever visit. The interior is very impressive, the food and service were pretty good too. There were plenty of groups enjoying a Christmas get together and other parties going on, so the restaurant was very busy, but the service was still acceptable. We will certainly be making a visit to The Churchill in the new year.

“Good value, very family friendly”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

We regularly visit the Churchill for family meals because we know there won't be any problems with the children here. It's always good value, the staff are friendly and the food is good, although not outstanding. It can get very noisy in parts of the restaurant so if you're visiting as a couple, I'd recommend you stay in the bar or the child-free area at the front of the restaurant.

A great location for a big family get together, or for a casual meal out if you're in the area.
