Definitely worth the reviews it has had in the national newspapers! As a Wintonian I am immensely proud that we have such a high-class restaurant as The Chesil Rectory, a restaurant which truly showcases the best that Winchester has to offer on the culinary stage.

Really nice place, very attentive and accommodating service. Four of us ate, three of us enjoyed it, mine wasn't quite as I hoped...I had venison and the meat, cabbage and rosti potatoes were all a little on the tough side, which was a shame.

We enjoyed a simply superb evening at Chesil Rectory. Excellent and imaginatively presented food served by friendly, efficient staff; actually, it felt more like being among friends than at a paying restaurant. My wife and I eat out quite a bit, and this was exceptionally good. Thank you.

Service from welcome through to departure was excellent (as ever) - attentive without being intrusive. Laverstoke Farm Black Pudding, Chalk Stream Trout, English Mustard Cream was a delicious and beautifully presented combination. Steamed Halibut, Salsify, Mussels, Sea Vegetables demonstrated once again the outstanding quality of the fish cooking at CR. Both with well-advised wine pairings. Looking forward to returning soon.

Hello I am infleuneced by the quality of my Sunday lunch although my friends were really happy with theirs. The starter was lovely but my 'roast beef with the trimmings' was difficult to eat (far too much on the plate) and I'm sorry that my beef was leathery. The step down was tricky for the oldest member of our group but we managed that between us. Your staff were great.
