The super-floral Churchill Arms, a yearly winner in the best pubs category. A veritable OTT for outside adornment. Actually a pub (so do also pop in for just a drink, if you’re not in the mood for a bite) with a fantastic atmosphere – the kind of place where you everyone probably would know your name, if they could. Serves delicious Thai food at very reasonable prices.
