Eat in the Churchill Arms - London's first Thai pub (probably)

The Churchill Arms, on Kensington Church Street a short distance from Notting Hill Gate Tube, is a lovely traditional pub which is as beautiful on the outside as it is inside.
Like many London pubs, the Churchill serves Thai food, and here it is cheap, good and in ample portions, a cut above the usual Thai pub fare, and great value considering the location. Indeed, your author seems to recall hearing that this was one of the first pubs in London to serve Thai food, so this is an original.

It does get very busy, and last time your author was in he struggled to get a table, but didn't have to wait long, so efficient were the attentive staff. So why not pop in next time you're in the area. For more information, check out the Time Out review.

  1. The Churchill Arms was my "local" :-) I am happy to see it featured here in your blog!

  2. Absolutely one of my favorite pubs; every time I visit London I've got to make a pilgrimage to see the butterflies and have some Thai!
