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.

    Our first time here. An enjoyable evening. Our only quibble was that to access the Brasserie through the bar we had to negotiate our way between a badly placed very large Christmas tree and a table full of people.

    Beautiful dining room, attentive waiters but sadly the main course of fish arrived almost cold. I returned it and asked for it to be heated which they did but it was returned extremely hot and the fish was now mushy. I was very disappointed as this restaurant has a very rating. Nothing was deducted from the bill nor an apology. We will not return.

    In summary - overpriced, average, uncreative food, decor has seen better days and service is hit and miss. Starting with the good, I was running a couple of minutes late so my husband went on ahead and waiting in the bar for me. The bar staff were really friendly and complimented our choice of drink. We were given some menus to look at while we waited in the bar and I'd not had long to look when a different member of staff came to take our order whilst we were still sat in the bar, luckily we had decided what we wanted at that point. They took our order and then I had to ask if they were then going to show us through to our table. They weren't packed out, so I would have preferred to be shown to our table before ordering. We sat in a "study" area, which initially looked cozy, however the lighting was a bit harsh which ruined the effect, and everything is just a bit worn around the edges, my chair was broken. The prawn starter was really good, lovely fresh prawns, but a meagre portion even for a starter. My husband ordered the burrata, it was fine, if no actual cooking involved. The alternative was mushroom soup, but with mushroom gnocchi being the only main veggie dish he didn't want to have mushrooms twice. Pork belly was very average, it was chewy underneath and crackling was not crisp. The dish overall was good with lovely gravy and apple sauce though. The mushroom gnocchi were really good. Desserts were both lovely and I was kindly allowed to swap my vanilla ice cream for a different flavour. Twice they tried to take my husbands dessert away whilst he was still eating it. After the second time we told them he was still eating it, they obviously gave up as he had to go and hunt them down to bring us the bill. We were not offered coffee. £90 for 3 courses and one pint each. Need to up the game a bit for these prices. We had also been considering sitting in one of the igloos outside, however it's £20 for the privilege, which you don't get back!

    Had two evening meals and two breakfasts. Quality of fayre is excellent although felt the cost of breakfast was quite expensive. Service was generally excellent although we were forgotten about on first evening as we were in the separate dining area - not too much of an issue as it gave time for our food to go down. Would we recommend - YES. If you are staying at the hotel - its a must to try the evening meal and the breakfast.

    We ate here on the first night of our two night stay as it was out 21st wedding anniversary just 2 days before. The food was first rate; Prawns and bruschetta to start, then Pork Belly and Lobster Thermidor as mains. All well cooked and presented, with portion size being just right (so not too small, but equally not like some places where everything can be too big). We finished with the cheese (shared), a glass of port each and a liqueur coffee to end it all. That plus a bottle of wine came to just over £140, which I was more than happy to pay. Both the waiter and waitress did a fine job. Speed of service (time to take our order, time for food to arrive, time between courses etc) was just right as well.

    The ambiance was so lovely. Starters good but then it went downhill. Lobster very dry. Pork belly very thin and overcooked. No idea about deserts….. not offered any! Or coffee!! Our plates were cleared and after 20 minute we just left. We had to leave the restaurant and go to the bar to pay as nobody came back to see us. Started so well but just went downhill. Very disappointing ☹️

    I really enjoyed my stay at the hotel, staff were lovely room was nice only issue was a dusty fan when we turned it on the dust went all over the floor but not that big of a deal. Love the outside area we never got a chance to use the atmosphere was lovely. If my partner and I come back to York we’d definitely stay at the hotel again. P.s in love with the hats in the dinning room.

    This was our last night staying here at the hotel so we decided to stay in house to eat. That was the worst decision we made,after being seated and left with a carafe of water we waited over 30 minutes for someone to take our drinks order, we then waited a further 30 minutes to receive our first course, after complaining to the duty manager we eventually received our main course which really left something to be desired, our fish was very wet and swimming in a pool of watery sauce, with micro vegetables and nota very good experience, we were not impressed as we also had our wine spilt whilst being poured and waiter did not return to clear the spillage until again I complained to the duty manager.we were not offered desserts or coffee which in hindsight was probably a good sign as it meant we did not waste any more of our hard earned cash.

    After being seated at our table, we waited half an hour before anyone came to take our order. Our food order was taken and I had to ask if we could order drinks. We were seated in a smaller room off the main dining room and at this point we were the only diners in this area. It felt as though we had been forgotten as we couldn't been seen from the main dining area. It then took another forty minutes for our first course to arrive. We then waited nearly as long for our desserts to arrive. We dined early on a weekday night so the restaurant was extremely quiet. There were only two or three other occupied tables for the majority of our time in there. Extremely disappointed for what was a special occasion.

    My lamb was cooked perfectly, would've liked a bit more cream in the dauphonoise potatoes but they were nice. My partner said his fish and chips were too dry but the fish had a nice flavour. Drinks were nice and not too expensive. We really loved the decor and ambiance. Service from the young waiting staff was excellent.

    Soup was nice. Mains came out quick but my steak was underdone, I asked to pop it back under to get it how I asked and it was returned chargrilled and tasted awful and burnt and chips were cold. My onion rings got brought out mid way through the meal and were so pale I couldn’t eat them, the lady that cleared my food saw that there was a full steak on the plate and a full bowl of onion rings and didn’t say a word, just returned with the bill. Eventually got offered free ice cream after bringing up the issue, but a £5 supplement for a £25 awful meal wasn’t the best option. Wouldn’t be dining here again if we were to come back to York.

    I was surprised to have to sit outside in 6 degrees heat. The menu had been restricted to 4 mains due to “COVID” so no steak or pork belly I’d been looking forward to from their online menu. Made worse by the fact there was no notification online or when we arrived at the hotel. Service was shocking. We had our mains thrown on the table. A second drinks order, ordered through the app wasn’t delivered until we were leaving. I realise there are complications around the whole COVID situation, but Felt very disappointed by the whole experience.
