Stopped by for haggis and a couple beers. Good stop for lunch and didn't mind accommodating me by putting a soccer match on the tv

“Good pub with a comfy/fun bar and al fresco - great location too”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Churchill's is a very solid player on the wonderful downtown McKinney historic square. Good food, good beer, good service, and good food. We always enjoy it.

A few favorites: Chicken tikki, fish & chips, chicken pot pie (homemade daily), jalepeno poppers... yum.

There's also a dining venue for everyone - a comfortable, low-key restaurant space downstairs, a livelier (but not too lively) fun bar upstairs, and a very nice al fresco space outside right on one of the corners of the square.

“Quaint and Friendly”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

I had a great lunch consisting of the Churcill Club Sandwich and fries. Washed down with a trio of Franconia Seasonal Beers. Waitress had a British accent and was very busy yet very attentive and pleasant. The lemon/basil mayo was very refreshing.

I will be back!

“Nice restaurant on the square”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

We had a nice lunch at Churchill's yesterday. My wife had the mahi mahi and thought it was delicious. I had a the "tower of london" burger and fries which were very good. They have three seating areas from which to choose: outside the front door under the umbrellas where you can watch the people come and go around the square, inside first floor with the linen table cloth, and upstairs where it's more of a sports bar feel with a couple of TVs broadcasting sporting events and a nice big bar with plenty of tables. The upstairs also has an area to shoot darts. This is a nice restaurant in the McKinney square.

“Poor”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

I was overcharged on my card. Marie offered to credit the tip amount only. Punishing the waitress and not offering something from the restaurant doesn't seem right.
