The Brasserie of The Churchill Hotel serves modern brasserie food overlooking the manicured lawns of the hotel, The restaurant is elegantly modern, its interior design utterly contemporary but without ignoring the splendid proportions and original features of the room – high arched windows, original wooden flooring and delicate coving just some of the Georgian features.
Begin your visit with a relaxed tipple in the airy atrium, or cosy bar before taking a seat in the brighter, more spacey dining room. Here you’ll enjoy food with a fresh, seasonal flavour. Imaginative and but with a nod to traditionalism, The restaurant’s cuisine is skillfully and carefully prepared for you by the kitchen’s talented and well trained chefs.
Please note you are booking for the Brasserie and not the outdoor beer garden.

Lovely clean room . Food quality excellent and good portions. Selection of dishes was good. The staff were on the top of their game . Freindly and professional. Advice given on local things to do was very good with a map and directions. A short walk to all the center of York was a bonus with on site car parking. Reception was well managed. Thank you very much. Will go back

We booked a table at the Dewsnap's Brasserie at the Churchill Hotel last minute on a Sunday and we definitely weren't disappointed. As soon as we got there, we were greeted by the attentive staff and shown to our table. The service throughout our meal was outstanding and the food was exceptional. The ambience of the brasserie was relaxed and chilled and the décor of the restaurant was stunning. Even though we were inside for our meal, we noticed the lovely outside area and we will definitely be returning to sit outside very soon.

Possibly because we were the last booking, but thats not really an excuse... the food was over cooked and staff didn't seem like they wanted to serve us.
We left most our food and said to the waitress that we were disappointed with the food and we just got an "ok".
Breakfast the next morning however was beautiful and servers were fantastic.

We arrived on time and were shown to a dirty table outside. Told to use the app to order food and drink and if we needed help just shout
The app took forever to upload and after putting all information in were told it would be a 20 min wait!!
We then looked at food only to find you could only order the sharing platters outside, which was not what we wanted
It started to rain and half the tables had no umbrellas!! Shoddy for a hotel of this stature
The food arrived late but was nice (for the half price)
To say we were bitterly disappointed with the whole experience is an understatement and we will definitely NOT be going back. My daughter cancelled her booking and to be quite honest, I wouldn’t tell any of my friends to visit at present

5 of us were eating , we were sat separately due to Covid restrictions , however the following morning a family of 5 were sat together at the same table Having breakfast

This is a bit confusing and doesn’t make sense that my family were made to sit separately?

Booked table for a special occasion weeks in advance. Spoilt on arrival as nowhere to park and had to wander around in the car after dropping partner off first to find somewhere and local area is permit only. Returned half and hour later!! Staff very courteous and hospitable. Inconsistent service as one staff member would only put plate on side of table for you and come no closer and yet other one was happy to serve you traditionally and take tableware from place setting. Ambiance good though garden was very busy in the pizza area. Not sure at this price point would go again personally but these are unusual times and am sure this probably is not their normal scenario when serving customers.

Over priced for what it is,
Lovely rooms but got woken up twice due to banging noise really loud.
Had dinner in restaurant and service was very slow and we were the only people eating at that time, we ordered 3 Irish coffees and it took 40min then asked for the bill and had to get up after 20min to pay at bar just for the dinner £200 for 4 I feel it should have been more like £120 so I would stay in the room but not do dinner there I would nip into york .

Wouldn't dine here again for evening meal, poor service, left for long periods, waiting 20 minutes for a glass of wine that never arrived and 90 minutes for 3 meals. We left disappointed and hungry. Decided to go for a pizza up the road. Couldn't even say it was busy apart from is one other family dining in the restaurant that evening. Waitresse could do with customer service training, to busy carrying on with other staff members.

Sold out of pizza, even though we had booked. Did not explain we had to load an app and had to ask what to do after sitting at the table for 15 minutes. The app takes a good 10 mins to read and understand if it’s the first time you have used it. The hotel itself looks lovely and it was a relaxing atmosphere.

Delicious food but quite a limited selection of drinks. Excellent ambience and good service. Food came before the drinks despite ordering these first on the app but this was soon resolved.

Just went with my parents from Brazil and we just loved it. The place is amazing, the garden is outstanding and foods and drinks were perfect. The owners are very friendly and very concerned about everything. I will definitely go back but next time will stay at the Hotel. Thank you, Becky it was very nice to meet you and your family!

Thank you for a lovely meal, really enjoyed our evening.
Couldn't have asked for friendlier staff right from the moment we walked through the door.
Food was delicious, we had the steak and the duck which were both cooked to perfection.
Thank you again, would definately vist again.

Honestly I left the hotel in tears I have raved about Churchill’s for ages to my cousins who were on this special occasion celebrating my 60th birthday and our ruby anniversary, we booked thinking they did the special at £27.50 for 3 course we were told that they didn’t do this offer anymore and I explained what the website had said and Churchill’s basically said tough and the manager on duty was rude and lacked any empathy to the situation and did nothing to appease the situation, a few years ago Churchill’s would bend over backwards to make sure their customers had a wonderful experience at the hotel upgraded rooms for returning customers and the menu was far superior to what they are serving now I’m afraid I think the 4* rating is very lacking and I’m so disappointed and upset about the situation

Food was sent back. Unable to eat it. Ordered a home made pie with trimmings. Meat was tough and the gravy poor, almost watery. Had to wait in the bar for over half an hour before being taken to an almost empty dining area even though I had booked a table. The serving staff was very apologetic. What a pity as the restaurant ambiance was good. Thought we were in for a good evening. Sadly it wasn’t to be.
