You'd think Churchill was a famous gardener, such is the exuberance of foliage and flowers decorating the exterior of this pub (42 hanging baskets, 48 window boxes, plus 100 tube, we're told). At Christmas, it would be wrong to say the Churchill is lit up like a Christmas tree; it's lit up like a forest of Christmas trees. The interior is equally OTT, with dangling nick-nacks, portraits of prime ministers, Irish paraphernalia and yet more greenery. So it's a surprise to find that the pub is tied to Fuller's, usually that most sober of breweries. The ales are therefore as you might expect: Pride, ESB, Chiswick and co. The pub has been ran by the same landlord, Gerry O'Brien, for three decades now, which perhaps explains the idiosyncracies. Food is concentrated in a back dining area, where the random clutter gives way to a forest of dangling vines. Oddness on stilts.
The pub's interior can also be explored via Google Street View, from which we half-inched a few shots below.
