The Indoor 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.

    It was our first visit to the Churchill and we were early for our sit down, we were shown to a very small bar area which was full tho quiet. Our server was lovely and attentive, in fact all the staff were nice. We went with a set menu and it didn’t disappoint. A lovely restaurant in a lovely old building.

    Enjoyed our meals of the table dhote menu particularly pork belly and dessert. The minute steak was disappointing just felt it cheapened the experience and should be swapped out for a bigger steak.

    Make sure the front desk doesn’t tell you that you can’t have breakfast unless you’re staying at The Churchill. If you can make the reservation, the restaurant host will greet you, and you’ll enjoy your meal!

    We were given a dress code to abide by so were surprised to see a female diner in baseball cap, hoodie and jogging bottoms, a male diner in blue jeans, and another male diner wearing shorts. We obviously needn't have made an effort. That said, the dining room was very nice, the food was good and the service was excellent.

    Overall really enjoyed our evening out. Unfortunately it was marred by there being no parking anywhere near the hotel, after driving around for 20 minutes parked in the road down the side just so we could ask the hotel what to do. The carpark is for residents only but said she thought that as it was 7.30 we should be okay where we had left the car …./ came out at 10pm to have been issued with a £70 parking fine. Not the restaurants fault but bear in mind when you visit.

    We were recommended the Churchill by our guest house. We were greeted by Reece who had actually taken our booking that evening. He promptly helped us with our drinks and explained the menu. The ambience of the restaurant was beautiful and relaxing and we chose where we wanted to be seated which was beneath Churchill's painting. Soon after we were asked by Reece if we were ready to place our order. When the food arrived it was generous portions and certainly had the wow factor. We will definitely return on our next visit to York. We will recommend the Churchill Hotel Restaurant to everybody.. Hopefully they'll get the pleasure of Reese serving them.
