Sir Winston Churchill Pub Restaurant Review

: The Winston Churchill Complex along the bustling Rue Crescent strip of downtown Montreal is three separate establishments strung together across three floors. More pub than restaurant, the place houses a trio of immense bars, large wall screens and a terrace that's the place to be on Crescent in summertime. The ambience lacks the familiar feeling that so many pubs attempt to capture, but drink specials abound, and there’s a daily happy hour. Staff appears young, trendy and more at ease behind a bar than waiting tables. They are, nonetheless, generally friendly and knowledgeable. The menu is fairly varied, offering sandwiches, clam chowder, fish ‘n’ chips and the expected pub fare. The food quality is, unfortunately, lacking. Dishes are more an afterthought, or a sponge for alcohol, than anything else. Pitchers of sangría are very sweet. Portions, at least, are generous. And during the Formula One Grand Prix, you'll be lucky to get a seat on the patio.
