Pub is nice but the Thai restaurant in the back which use to be good has gone right down hill, surly service and small portions, takeaway is even worse, £7.50 for half a portion of pad Thai with 3 bits of chicken, poor value. This place use to be very good will not go again am now a fan of the Thai at the latimer pub hammersmith road.

One of the loveliest pubs I have been to. It is very pretty and you can enjoy different types of food firstly, my friends and I stayed in the pub area and had some lovely beers (they have got a great selection there in the pub) and then secondly, we moved on to a Thai restaurant in the same pub which was fantastic, food was lovely spiced up. I can definitely recommend it. Would go there again and again.
DO NOT GO TO THIS PUB. It is managed by probably the rudest staff I have ever come across. The food was acceptable and pricing was middle of the road but as soon as the (I assume) manageress discovered that only one of the three of us wanted a main course, she became very aggressive, complaining loudly that the table was for three. The other two of us settled on just a dessert in order to keep the peace. She watched us like a hawk and as soon as our friend who had the main course had finished that and was in the process of eating his dessert, we were presented with a bill and told “you go now, you go now”. We had to finish our drinks at the bar, which we ensured did not take long, and made a quick exit to a more welcoming venue.
Really, places like this do not deserve to survive and I would advise anyone to avoid it like the plague!
Fantastic Pub. I’ve only been there once but I am dying to go back and can’t recommend it highly enough! It’s a great place to take people that are over as tourists. Full of character and full to the brim inside with interesting things to look at. Lovely friendly barstaff, good range of drinks on offer. The icing on the cake is the lovely Thai restaurant out the back (or you can eat in the bar/pub area), fantastic food at a really good price and again really lovely surroundings. In the Summer there is an amazing display of flowers outside.
such a pity. its way more appealing from the outside. the food is cheap, but the service is nasty. in the restaurant at the back, you are constantly reminded that you only have 90minutes to eat and leave. fine, get on a darned well serve me then!! the pad thai is fine, but exceptionally stingy with prawns (3?!!!) so knowing this, my friend asked for additional prawns (which she’d pay for) to which she was flatly told no. They then brought the bill whilst we were still eating (and had 20mins of our 90 left) then returned every 2 minutes asking for payment.
i will not be going back a third time.
A friend suggested me to check this place out. He was very positive that I will like it.
Well, it's nice and it has character, and the staff was very friendly.
However, the Thai restaurant in the back of th pub just made this place have a weird mixture of bad smells. Too strong.
I wasn't too impressed.

This pub is really pretty, thats partly what made me want to try it, well that and the thai food.
However this pub I feel is a victim of its own success, I went on a Wednesday night at it was rammed and impossible to get a table. However we did get a table in the restaurant but I found the food a let down, I love thai food and I like it spicy but the dish I had nearly blew my brains out. And the experience was quite rushed so I won't be returning.
Undoubtedly one of the prettiest pubs in London, with hanging baskets galore in the summer months and endless fairy lights come Christmas time. The interior is just as charming, although the hundreds of chamber pots hanging from the ceiling is a tad unnerving!
Out the back there's a restaurant which serves Thai food. I've never eaten there but the restaurant area is wonderfully quirky, and feels like an indoor garden with water features and shrubbery wherever you turn.
I'll report back once I've sampled some of the cuisine.
great thai food, very authentic (and spicy). i think this place is affiliated in some way with addies in earls court, which is one of the best thai restauarants in london (and this place is also a pub)

Why does some little pub with pretty flowers already have 33 reviews on Qype? Simply because it is amazing.
The people are friendly, in an old fashioned and genuine way, saying hello as you come in, calling out to say goodbye, mixed with the normal friendly banter you'd receive in a local country pub.
The place is dripping in decoration, from the crazy overflowing pot plants, hanging baskets etc, tot eh gypsy treasures hanging from the bar ceiling, to the butterfly obsession in their Thai restaurant.
Really top notch food that is too. They are always bustling and busy, and with such attention to detail this is one place that will stay the course.
Seen at the bar- little paper holder on top of the beer glass with a picture of an old fashioned gentleman, and a message "Gone smoking" as a place holder. How could you not like this place?

This pub was my local many years ago. Is it still festooned with portraits of former PMs? Has Tony Blair joined the gallery?
Great beer, lovely people.

To be honest I didn't see him (yes the others are still all there) but that doesn't mean Tony isn't framed somewhere- there's just a lot to take in :)
I really do enjoy this pub, it is one of my dad's favourites as well as I mine, which I think says a lot. You will find all sorts of ages in this pub but thankfully without any noisy big parties or teenagers.
The look of the place is incredible. The outside is beautiful with all the flowers all over the building. The inside is like gymnastics for the eyes - there are so many things to see and you bounce from one artifact to the other. There are pots and pans hanging from the low ceiling as well as rugby balls now because it is the season. The owner of the pub is always around and he is such a laugh. He clears the glasses of the table with his hooked cane so beware if it comes swooshing close to you!
The back of the pub has a conservatory/ butterfly exhibition room which serves thai food. The thai food is very yummy and a good price. Unfortunately to eat in the actual restaurant you almos always need a reservation but the good news is that you can actually eat the thai food anywhere in the pub! So no need to reserve!
I would definitely say this pub is worth a visit if you are in the area, beware though on Sundays it gets very busy.
Good food and massive portions but it is hot hot hot!! I'm not usually a wimp when it comes to heat but my duck curry nearly blew my head off! Ask for mild and see how you go. Lovely little conservatory area out in the back and eveything tastes authentic and fresh.
If you're looking for a real, classic english pub, but also a very handy and nice location, then this is the one you should be heading to. The experience of Churchill Arms starts with what can be seen outside. A beautiful house in a corner of Notting Hill that looks almost made of tree leaves and flowers welcomes you in a very particular way. Inside, the environment is special and different from the rest of the pubs I have ever visited in the city. Very nice and high class looking people, no lousy drunks, no music, but still very funny. All the way down you get the restaurant section with a spillover of flowers and green, which is a nice touch. And a very very good thai food for a really good price (mains for less than 7 pounds). I don't give the place 5 stars just because of the service in the restaurant which can be very much improved.
Must be about the only pub in the world that has a picture of Churchill above a Céad Míle Fáilte sign (its owned by a Irish fella so there's a strange mix of decoration)
Great wee pub,good for conversation and the kinda place where you can chat about somethin random with the people sitting beside you; not easy to find in this town I tell ya!
One of my favourite pubs in London. Only real downside is the popularity, which makes it a complete pain in the ass to find a table, or a spot at the bar. The interior is completely mad; all kinds of junk hanging from the ceilings and walls, WW2 propoganda posters everywhere, and a restaurant cum greenhouse selling Thai food out the back. If you can get here early, and grab a table, then I can highly recommend it, otherwise I'd give it a miss for somewhere less crowded.
Must be memorable or my South African friend would not have remembered it so fondly from his months living and working in the big smoke?
This character filled pub gets so busy that they've started hanging their memorabilia from the ceilings. It houses more than just a pub, however. There is an equally busy and popular restaurant serving Thai food in the back.
Food was tasty and service acceptable, if a little rushed.
Not recommended for tall people, unless you enjoy having your head amongst a diverse mix of low-flying plant life, butterflies and general knick-knackery!
But, all that stuff does make this an interesting and unique pub. What's more - they've somehow sneaked in a small Thai restaurant in the back.
I love this concept, but in reality it serves a very limited selection of quite basic and unspectacular Thai dishes. The prices are what you'd reasonably expect for food that isn't going to blow you away.
Very busy on the Friday night I went, with a one hour wait for dinner at 8.30pm.
