Upon arrival, we were instantly impressed with the social distancing and safety measures being put in place. Our temperatures were taken upon arrival and we were asked to use handsantiser before being taken to our seats.
Within the newly renovated outdoor terrace, we were happy that there were appropriate social distancing methods in place. They really have spared no measure, as even simple measures such as online menus and wipes to re-wipe your already sanitised cutlery if you are extra cautious goes along way to help you keep safe. If you prefer inside seating, there is plenty of space available. All of which remains socially distanced. The bathrooms were also cleaned on a regular basis which certainly made me feel very safe whilst I was having lunch.
There is a reduced bar menu and food menu, however, what is available is certainly top notch and will be updated regularly. Drink wise, we tried the THE ARISTOCRAT £16 (Toasted Bread infused Havana 3 y/o Rum, Fortified Butter syrup, Veuve Clicquot Brut Champagne), the BLENHEIM FIZZ £17(Stoli Elit Vodka, Grape Syrup, Lemon Juice, Fresh Basil Leaves, Pol Roger Champagne) and the FORBIDDEN SPRITZ £16 (Kaffir Lime Leaves Infused Rooster Rojo Tequila, Campari, Agave Syrup, Lime Juice, 3 Cents Grapefruit Soda). The Forbidden Spritz was definitely our favourite. It was extremely refreshing and the perfect drink for a warm summer’s day sitting in a gorgeous terrace.
My friend chose the CLASSIC CAESAR SALAD £16 (parmesan, romaine lettuce, egg, crouton add chicken £2) for her meal whilst we were there, but instantly had food envy when she saw my Chicken burger! (She did thoroughly enjoy her salad thoughTHE TRAVELER £14.00 HALAL consists of crispy chicken thigh, smashed avocado, jalapeno mayonnaise, herb salad, garlic. It was absolutely delicious and I’m not just saying that as it was the first burger I didn’t have to cook for myself in nearly four months. The flavours were all phenomenal and each bite was better than the last.
The shining star was the SWEET POTATO FRIES £5 though. Covered in Cajun Spices, spicy mayo, bacon and crispy shallots… they were the best sweet potatoes fries we have ever tried.
If you’re looking for somewhere to visit, which is central but a little distanced from the heart of Central, then the Churchill Bar and Terrace is the place to visit.
