As much as I would like to give a good review of Churchills, I have been several times, each hoping it would be better. Sadly, the food is not worth the price and the service is not even good.

This place was recommended by a "local" and was she right on the money! She recommended the fish and chips which I had and it was some of the best I've ever eaten. The fish practically covered the dinner placate and was cooked to perfection. The children s were a tools between Boardwalk Fries and Five Guys Fries, which I... More

We first visited Churchill's when some acquaintances said: "The best place in town to get burgers is Churchill's." Huh, we thought. But we went, anyways. In short...they were right! And the onion rings, jalapeño poppers, bangers and mash and beer are first rate as well! I would rate this a "must try"! Hope you enjoy it as much as we... More

Some friends of our family hold a London new year party at Churchill's each 12/31 for the past few years. The beer selection is worthy of San Diego craft beer culture and with so many local breweries nearby they have good local connections to great beer. But the food is excellent as well, I always get the fish and chips... More

The ambience is kinda cold and basic. The beer selection is fairly good. The food was so-so. Service was kinda off-hand, even a bit brusque. Having grown up in UK, I may be a little hyper critical of wannabe pubs. His one didn't make "the cut" for me. Or maybe I'm just "over" this style when craft beer based brew... More

If you want to sample beer, this is the place. They always have a large beer menu which is frequently changed, bringing in local beers. The food is typical pub food, but is quite good. The service is super friendly.

Little disappointed with atmosphere, Sunday lunch, I'm really looking for an authentic English pub, ordered fish and chips, batter was the best I've tasted, service was good, would go again if I'm in the area. Need more British food, only fish and chips and sausages and mash.

Churchill's has a variety of "English" foods on their menu and most are really good. Good English brews too.

Nice British pub. Went on wing night. Not a bad deal. Plethora of beers on tap, if you're into that.
