Live locally? Braybrook’s shopping strip on Churchill Avenue is your one stop shop for all things food and drink related. This once quiet, sleepy area has been reinvented with a fresh slew of shops adapted for the new and improved Braybrook.
So if you are out and about stop by for a coffee, enjoy some outdoor dining, or shop ingredients from across Asia.
What was once known as bottle shop Western Cellars, has now evolved into Churchill Cellars, Café, Bar and Bottle shop. A new curated space for the modern customer where industrial meets old world charm. Here you’ll find ample seating at high bar tables under a 1950’s Williams sign. Sit down and relax, have a bite to eat, play a board game (chess and checkers are readily available), or treat yourself to one of Churchill Cellars speciality G&T’s.
