While in London for business, we went to Churchill Arms for dinner and some drinks. The pub is fascinating in it's history and decor. It's a very warm and welcoming pub with pleasant staff and great drinks. The pub itself I would give a 5 for rating, however it is the attached Thai restaurant which brought my experience down to...

Churchill Arms is an interesting joint. The building is nicely decorated with plants. Inside the pub one can see quirky memorabilia on Winston Churchill as well as the British life. Food is mostly Thai. Evenings the pub is packed. Tough to get place. Great atmosphere! A must visit when in Central London

Had dinner hear first time for a few years. The restaurant whilst beautiful with all its flourishing plants has the atmospheric feel of sitting in a heated humid greenhouse. The service was very poor & were keen to tell us that we only had one hour at our table (couldn't actually of stayed longer due to the heat). The food... More

While it is English pub on the outside and inside, the food is SE Asian/Thai. Surprise and why? For its rep, easy to get a table midweek. Food was great.

If you are in London, you really should go here to enjoy a drink or three. It is such a cool little place that's full of interesting history. It does tend to be crowded, and it is a bit of a tourist thing, but it is really worth it to go and enjoy a brew here. I hear they also... More

This place is amazingly different! I absolutely love the inside decoration it's like an alive museum! I took friends that were visiting and they absolutely loved it. We ate in the restaurant bit - the food is amazing! Well cooked well seasoned and I even got to take some home in a take away box as the plate was too... More

My family loves it here. It's a good pub topped off with great Thai food. Highly recommended. If you like Thai Food and Fullers beer it is a must for Sunday Lunch.

One of my favourite pubs in London filled with good mood and interesting facts about Winston Churchill. Like he drank 48000 bottles of champagne in his lifetime....

This pub is definitely worth a visit to see the flower arrangements outside and the huge assortment of paraphenalia hanging from the ceilings and attached to the walls inside. We went on a weekday lunchtime; it was not too busy and we were served quickly and efficiently both at the bar and in the restaurant (which is a Thai food... More

Stopped in for a pint and dinner. Great authentic pub. Friendly clientele. Walking distance from Kensington Palace. Pub in front, Asian restaurant in back.
