I was invited to enjoy the authentic Churchills experience earlier this month.
I’ve only been to Churchills once before. It was busy and buzzing and dazzling. I liked that it was a bit quieter this time around because it gave me a chance to fully appreciate the decor. From the bowler-hat light fixtures to the library lounge that brought to mind whiskey and cigars – a hint of the old-school gentleman’s club. Not the sleazy ones – I literally thought of Sherlock Holmes embarrassing Mycroft among his peers.
Cause for celebration
My friend, Andrea, recently made a significant change in her life, so it seemed fitting that she come with me for some bubbles and snacks.
The menu is refreshingly limited in the number of choices, but don’t be fooled – there’s plenty of variety (except for the dessert, but more about that later).
We settled on the Captain’s platter while sipping on Martini Prosecco (really, really good bubbles!). And because I’m a little piggy, but also because the food was so yummy, I could totally have polished off that platter on my own. The nachos lacked a bite, but as someone who prefers a slight nibble rather than a huge spicy munch, I appreciated that I could season it to taste.
For dessert, you have two options: chocolate mousse or Eton mess. The benefit of having a friend on hand meant we could try both without being judged, and both get four thumbs up.
