Really nice exterior with numerous hanging baskets. The interior is covered in bric a brac with a British/Irish vibe going on. Pretty standard Fuller's beer selection.

Tris C left this review about The Churchill Arms

This pub was built in 1824 as The Bedford Arms and by just 1826 was renamed The Churchill Arms, not as is claimed on the website that it was named after World War II in honour of Winnie, whose countenance looms large wherever you look; I suspect that this has been suggested to drum up foreign tourist custom. I only came here once before and that was in the summer of 1994 - the pub hasn't been out of the GBG since - and I recall a vast collection of mounted butterflies, a collection which seems to have diminished in size quite markedly since. As mentioned, this pub has a quite traditional interior with a carpet, patterned stained leaded windows and enough bric-a-brac to shame The Hemingford Arms. Crowds here - crowds being the operative word - are drawn from locals and tourists. With the massed hoards and ceilings festooned with everything, it's all a bit claustrophobic in here and the smell of Thai food is really a bit pervasive; great in a Thai restaurant but really not in a pub. With all the hurling sticks and Emerald Isle memorabilia, the place must also be an avowedly Irish-themed venue which couldn't be more incongruous given the name, images of the Queen and red, white and blue bunting proclaiming 'British!' about the place. It must then be a Unionist pub? Service came with a much-welcomed charming smile.
Ales: Fuller's ESB, London Pride, Summer Ale and Oliver's Island Golden Ale at a typical £2.20 a half and on good form.
This jolly pub has many charms, but as mentioned it really does provide something of a claustrophobic sensory overload, combined with the piscean whiff of nam pla. We also weren't charmed by the screaming child at the next table. This place is certainly worth a visit, but I just can't like it enough to become a regular if in the area.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Churchill Arms

Top-notch Fuller's pub, and very attractive both outside (with its cascades of hanging baskets) and within (with almost every type of memorabilia one can imagine). Various seating areas around and beyond the staple-shaped bar. Usually very busy, with a good atmosphere. Chiswick, Pride, ESB and Spring Sprinter (£4.10) available on this visit from a total of seven handpumps in two banks. Located a short walk south of Notting Hill Gate underground station and well worth seeking out.
