Churchills is a upmarket and trendy looking place. The space is rather small and there were quite a few seats with a view to the piazza reserved. The drinks menu is rather extensive, specially on the whiskey side. There is a menu for eating, but...More

We had the best T-bone on our trip.... And Johnny Walker Blue Label was heaven. Great atmosphere and friendly staff, specifically at the entrance. Great place!

Churchills is a very cosy cigar lounge / club. They have an assorted range of cigars for the connoisseur and is an ideal venue for a function. The music is great on Fridays and Saturdays! Really enjoyed the vibe there!

This was my first experience and must say the ridgid rules make it an uncomfortable place to just adhoc drop in. Manager was rude and clearly customers are not right or accomodated. Check the bill extra drinks added. Looks the part but not impressed

This is a trendy and vibrant place for drinjs and snacks. Despite the fact that it is positioned as a pub it creates a feeling of exclusivity from outside. A harvest table was on offer when we arrived with a variety of snack food. This...More

Churchills can be a good hang spot to grab drinks but the bottle service policy is a bit bizarre. For example if you are in the seated area and you order a bottle of champagne and you'd still like to just have a normal drink...More
