I didn't really expect much to be honest but it is actually ok. I'm unsure as to whether this is a shop conversion despite its "shop" size, the building looks pubby and has some leaded glazing with green and maroon banding. Additionally there are polished wood features such as the double arch opposite the bar with a central period fireplace. The main area alongside the bar is boarded, the rear area and front corner raised section has a stripy carpet. To the rear is a pleasant outdoor area with well maintained picnic benches, there is also pavement seating to the front.
There were papers on a side table, music played at a sensible volume but most punters were engrossed in the horse racing on the pair of TVs. Three handpumps, two on, Caledonian Golden XPA, so so, plus Old Speckled Hen. An old fashioned locals' pub, nice to see in a gentrified bit of London.

This place doesn't seem to have changed much since the previous reviewer's visit. It's certainly more pub-like than most shop conversion bars I've visited. It's effectively a long fairly narrow bar, leading out to a bit of outside seating at the back. As you enter there's a small raised area on the left with a couple of tables/chairs; the bar counter's on the left wall; and past that there are a few tables with semi-circular banquette seating around them. There are TVs on the walls of course, plus games and fruit machines, and a coal effect fire blazing away in the fireplace. Some shelves have a load of ancient looking books on them, there's a stag's head above the fireplace, and a couple of Churchill Inns mirrors make a nice addition to the decor.

The pub was very well paronised when I was in at around 4.30 on Thursday, but everyone seemed to like to crowd around the bar counter in preference to using the table seating. Nonetheless, I managed to peer between a couple of them to spot a clip for Caledonian Golden XPA (£3.30 a pint), plus an Old Speckled Hen clip reversed and a third pump unused. No sign of any food.

It's a fairly straightforward shop conversion, but they have made some effort to make it a bit homely, and do a real ale. While nothing very special, it's a fairly decent place.

Churchills is a long thin pub with a raised seating area at the front, a bar on the left hand wall in the centre and some seating beyond. There are a couple of plasma screens which were muted whilst showing tennis on BBC and horse racing on Sky Sports during my Friday evening visit. There was some background music playing at an unobtrusive volume; it’s a while since I’ve heard Phil Collins!
The bar is stocked with standard draught and one of the three hand pumps was unused leaving Sambrooks Wandle and Caledonian’s Golden XPA as the ale options. Thai food is available to eat in or take away and an all-day breakfast is available from 11:00 until 15:00, which is hardly all-day.
There is some seating under an awning on the path out the front and there is a covered tree lined beer garden at the rear.
There is a weekly quiz on Mondays from 21:00.

This place was a little quieter than its peers and certainly more pub like. I would have no problem returning for another couple of beers.
