Nice garden for the children in the summer. Inside very dark and can feel a bit of a pub for locals. Food ok but not cheap.

My and my friends family descended on this pub last Sunday morning for breakfast. We rang ahead to check they could seat us - no problem. The cooked English breakfast including tea or coffee and toast or fried bread was surprisingly good quality and value at just over £5:head. The service was friendly and excellent. We will definitely go again.

We regularly visit The Churchill Arms for breakfast on a Sunday morning. It is definitely our preferred choice of breakfast place. We have also been on a Thursday evening (which is steak night) and can recommend the steaks. They are delicious! Nothing is ever too much trouble. For example one of us is a tad fussy but Tanya will always... More

Nice Sunday lunch and pud. All good except the roast pots which were hard. Shame as every thing else was very nice.

Thank you Eileen for taking the time to write a review. I agree, this week the roast potatoes where a bit small so they did end up a bit hard this week. I apologise for that and we will make sure they aren't cut so small in future. Thank you again for your feedback. More

We have been to The Churchill Arms several times this year and on each occasion it has been fabulous. The entertainment nights with live music are a must to see, the Quiz Nights are a brain-teaser these days but our 'Know-All' buddies can be relied upon to get most of the questions wrong!

Have been to the Churchill several times over the last couple of years and it never fails to please. Friendly people, with a good regular pub grub menu and a daily specials board. Also a very popular Sunday lunch/carvery. And if its your thing, they have a regular quiz night. . entertainment..

As there were 19 of us (adults and children) the owner asked us to pre-order our food to make things easier. We arrived at 7 and we're greeted bubour main server, Molly, who... More
