Pub Food with Reviews, Maps and Links to their websites

The Wykeham Arms

75 Kingsgate Street, Winchester, Hampshire SO23 9PE – 01962 853834

I took six other people here for dinner, and the food was very good, all round, we all had something different, and three courses. all the courses were good sizes, so you didn't feel hungry or stuffed, and not one comment that wasn't "great" I love the atmosphere of this historic pub, and the fires in the winter. the old school desks are an interesting touch, and on a summer evening, the back garden is a dream. would recommend this to anyone who cares about what they eat.

The Wykeham Arms is reliably excellent - great range of beers and wines, food is varied and plentiful and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We watched a number of the Six nations games there last year so no need to travel to Twickenham again!

The Green Man

53 Southgate Street, Winchester, Hampshire SO23 9EH – 01962 866809

Nice choice of drinks with a good gin menu! Dark n dingy in a stylish way...

Very nice. Highly recommend the ribs. Nice atmosphere.

The Royal Oak Pub

Royal Oak Passage, Winchester, Hampshire SO23 9AU – 01962 842701

There are only a few pubs you can go in these days and get a great relaxed feeling. Food is great. The Ale's are tops and varied. Staff, well they are apart of the pub, always welcoming and smiling. Giving out a warm pleasant service. All in all, a warm atmosphere.

Only used the pub a couple of times but always felt welcome will use it more in the summer as the garden is nice to enjoy a fag and a pint

All Restaurants

Ask Italian Restaurant

God Begot House, 101 High Street, Winchester SO23 9AH – 01962 849464

Generally Ask chain of restaurants are good-very good service wise, but this time it was unbelievably unprofessional! Aside from the supervisory manager seating us and being lovely, the 'delivery' staff were rude, impatient and sarcastic! There were 7 of us booked at a table with an over sized sieve of pumpkins which were impractical when the large pizza boards came out. The 'server' was impatient with us moving everything around, and finding space for the sieve of pumpkins without an offer to help. None of us ordered wine, yet the wine glasses were left on the table to clutter it up, and we were expected to move them to make room. Note: the restaurant was hardly busy. Each time a place or drink was delivered it was with a 'sorry!' impatient/rude tone, and by a grumpy looking waitress/waiter. Dessert time, delivered WITHOUT cutlery.....so when a member of our party asked politely the bar staff for some the simple was retorted with a 'yeah in a minute' sarcastic tone. Quite unbelievable that I even wasted my time booking there when two other Italian restaurants were probably better. The supervisory manager did apologize profusely, and was the only professional. It will be a very long time I decide to dine at Ask in Winchester, or recommend it

Good chow, good service, never let down. Bravo.

The Black Rat Restaurant

88 Chesil Street, Winchester, Hampshire SO23 0HX – 01962 844465

We have been dining at the Black Rat since it opened but our recent visit was disappointing, the dishes where over complicated to the detriment of the ingredients. Servings were consistently chopped into small pieces with dressings that submerged the quality of the individual components. The bill was more expensive and we went home hungry as well. Felt like a restaurant trying too hard to get 2 stars. Will probably eat in the New Forest next time (The Pig, Lime Wood or Montagu Arms).

Just had a wonderful evening. The food not only looked like art but had so many innovative combinations of flavours and depth. Even the bread was an experience. Drank a fantastic bottle of Rioja and mentioned that I was a fan of gin and brought a complimentary gin and Padrino tonic. The Black Rat is the only place outside of london serving alcoholic tonic water! Barry, who looked after us is an absolute legend and was as much a part of the pleasure of the evening as the food and ambience. We ate inside which is cosy and classic but had dessert outside in a little tiki style hut that was luxurious, heated and smoker friendly. Everyone there seems to take real pride in what they do and if I could I'd be there every day guzzling samples from their wide range of gins. It isn't cheap, nor should it be. An absolute pleasure. Thank you.

Dim T Restaurant

Friendly up beat restaurant offering pan Asia food......dim sum was excellent and served quickly and piping hot...loved the shared platter for starters. ....good value tasty food ..recommend you try this on way to station after a hard day shopping in Winchester

Great place to go for Dim Sum and other oriental dishes. Food quality is excellent, service and ambiance is great. Will be visiting again!

Mr So

3 Jewry Street, Winchester SO23 8RZ – 01962 861234

Great chinese food, fair price!

Salt and pepper ribs are fantastic but all the rest are great. Have had some great meals there and will keep going.

Shanghai Papa Restaurant

George's, 8 Saint George's Street, Winchester – 01962 862838

Best Chinese restaurant in winchester so far! definitely worth a try for both family dinner or friends party. strongly recommend their curry dishes and dim-sum.

All the food in Shanghai Papa are freshly made. Spicy Chinese ingredients are used fabulously in this restaurant. And also Cantonese roast duck in brown sauce(Shao ya) and roast pork are also very popular. Worth to try everything here.

Indian Restaurants and takeaways

Gandhi Indian Restaurant

163 - 164 High Street, Winchester, Hampshire SO23 9BA – 01962 863940

Loved the food especially the lamb and prawn dishes. Tasty hot and looked very attractive. Rice portion and spinach portion a little small but tasty and loved the white crockery. Busy restaurant but quickly served. Well worth a try

I used to go to the Gandhi all the time when I was younger, and it hasn't seemed to change a bit. The atmosphere and decor is nice and intimate, I love getting a booth along the sides. The staff are polite and helpful, and the food is good. I love getting takeaways from here. The prices are good too.

Rimjhim Indian Restaurant

1-3 City Road, Winchester SO23 8SD – 01962 868352

this is jony from winchester, today 12 January i went to Rimjhim for eating some food, i ordered some starter , main course, starter was good , main course was really rubbish, i ordered butter chicken , T dall, k naan , rice for the main course, i got lots of sugar in Butter chicken, lots of salt in T Dall, by the way , that's not the fact , what i got from there waiter behavior,i m astonished and hurt, one of their waiter asked me, where are u from? i didn't want to tell him, but he asked me again, i just said india ,dellhi ,which is not real, he asked me which part are u from? , i just said its personal , i don't wanna say, he asked me again why u are not telling , i was very angry for his questioning.........that's why i complained to the owner of Rimjhim , don't engage this type of waiter ...... ,

My parents have been to the other Rim Jhim nearby for years and visit the one in Winchester quite often. The food is great and not greasy like some curries. I love the naan. The chef has been there for 5 years so we've always been happy with the quality of the dishes. All the food had great reviews from around our table, but my issue was that this time the main course took forever to come and it wasn't that busy. However, I've never had this problem before. That won't stop us visiting again, we love this place.

Light Of Bengal

7 Andover Road, Winchester SO23 7BS – 01962 860093

I have also been a regular customer for 5 years and have never had a bad meal. Great value and great service, whether you eat in or take-away. Always my first choice in Winchester. I highly recommend the baltis, just delicious.

I've been using the Light of Bengal for years. Never had a bad meal. Always to a very high standard, good price too. The best in the area.

Italian Pasta and Pizza Restaurants

Prezzo

16 Jewry Street, Winchester SO23 8RZ – 01962 864256

This review is not for Winchester.. I've not yet had chance to enjoy.. My review is in general. Yeovil.. Never to return after our meal was so rudely hurried due to table needed for next diners. Blandford.. Chicken was kept so long under heat lamps that the edges were too dry to eat & the profiterols also were not the usual standard. Nottingham ...Fabulous Ringwood " Port Solent " Wimborne "

It was a great time we spend there. Food was very tasty and portions big enough to fill even a monster :) service top 5stars. Definitely worth comming back.

Zizzi's

57 High Street, Winchester SO23 9BX – 01962 841814

Extremely good value for the huge 'rustica' pizzas which, if you don't order a boring one, are slathered with delicious toppings. The Piccanté is particularly good. Since that is what they are known for it would be unwise to order anything else and expect it to be as good as them. Well, some of the starters are really top bunny as well. The calamari rings are always perfectly cooked with a wonderful texture and they taste fabby-mongous. They also do some risotto rice balls filled with cheese that are lovely. Easily the best pizzas in Winchester - my view of this chain has improved in leaps and bounds since going to this branch regularly. Order your starters carefully, get a rustica pizza, and you would have to be a pretty dreary type if you didn't have a great time here.

Great food & service, a little pricey for pizza but worth it.

Mercure Winchester Wessex Hotel

Paternoster Row, Winchester SO23 9LQ – 01962 312800

Although circumstances forced cancellation of my stay at the Mercure Winchester, I would like to comment on their outstanding customer service levels. In particular Lucy Demuth, sales and events manager, pulled out the stops to ensure I had a reservation for New Year's eve dinner, only minutes before the chef's deadline. Then sadly a family emergency forced me to cancel the hotel booking and meal the next day - New Year's eve! Despite the very late notice, Lucy explained the situation to her manager and subsequently allowed the cancellation without penalty. So I apologise again to Lucy for the double workload, and thank her and the Mercure management for their kindness. Looking forward to staying there before too long!

Ok hotel, a little old. Ask for a room with a view for the Cathedral. It looks good.

Winchester Royal Hotel

St Peter Street, Winchester, Hampshire SO23 8BS – 0844 855 9156

A historic and charming hotel right in the heart of Winchester. The staff are unfailingly helpful and polite, and although we didn't try the restaurant, the bar food was excellent. Unfortunately it's let down by the rooms - with faded decor and a pervasive mustiness, they need refreshing. A lumpy mattress and somehow uncomfortable bedsheets is a disappointment, and the advertised wi-fi didn't work.

Some rooms feel bit like living in a cell. Wifi connection is a hit and missed, some rooms can't event connect to it.

Wine Bars and Cocktail Bars

Pitcher & Piano

57 Colebrook Street, Winchester SO23 9LH – 01962 856301

Tried it out to see what it was like - mmm

The Old Vine

8 Great Minster Street, Winchester, Hampshire SO23 9HA – 01962 854616

A great place to visit in Winchester! I am an American who lived in the beautiful city of Winchester for two years and absolutely fell in love with The Old Vine while I was there. They have a great selection of wines and ales and a menu that is constantly changing. The attention to detail by the proprietors and staff is evident with each and every visit. Not sure if they are still serving these dishes, but you MUST try the lamb shank for dinner and the banoffee pie for dessert. Everything is locally sourced and the menu changes seasonally. Also, they are located just across from the Winchester Cathedral. My two cents, if you are in England around Christmas time you absolutely MUST go to Winchester for the Christmas market and if you are lucky...grab a table, even better yet, rent a room and grab a table at The Old Vine!

The Old Vine is a small hotel-pub in Winchester, just in front of the Cathedral. It's a very charming place!! We loved to stay there!! Everything is perfect!! The rooms are very, very, confortable, lovely decoration, perfect service, and they have wonderful food!!

The Winchester Hotel

1 Worthy Lane, Winchester SO23 7AB – 01962 709988

Lovely room, excellent food & friendly staff. The spa is nice but wish they'd gone for a traditional shaped pool, it's not really big enough!

I have never stayed the night here, but I have attended many corporate parties. On one occasion, I came second in a limbo competition; I took my socks off to provide extra grip and, when I held them up to the crowd, everyone went wild. The swimming pool is nice. Once, I saw Frankie Boyle in the sauna in just his swimming trunks. This is also the place where I go to give blood and they give me biscuits afterwards. This hotel holds lots of good memories for me, apart from one day when they had trouble finding my artery for the arterial puncture and had to stab me again and again.
