Took my Mother here for her 73rd Birthday - fantastic food, amazing service and stunning surroundings; we all had a great time...and I'll be back! Thanks so much.
Lovely building and atmosphere. Food was excellent - we all really enjoyed it and would recommend it to friends and family.
Great atmosphere, even better food...
This was the second year we booked for your New Year's Eve dinner at £75 per head. As last year the quality of the food and the presentation was excellent but the service let you down.I like friendly relaxed service but this just so relaxed and casual so as to be poor and it wasn't because the restaurant was busy. We didn't get our red wine to go with the meat course until we were halfway through the course. Also we had to fetch our own coats from the cupboard and there was no goodbyes, thank you for coming etc. Staff were standing around chatting to each other. On the basis of this experience I am not sure we shall be returning next New Year's Eve as at £75 plus wine it is not a cheap evening.
Lovely place to eat,
My husband and I had a wonderful dining experience, the food was not only creative and beautifully presented it was absolutely delicious! We’d love to come back again! Great attentive service and stylish dining surrounding too!
Very disappointing evening to celebrate a birthday. Table not ready but bar too busy to accommodate us. Instead of standing in doorway accepted another table But atmosphere poor when upstairs emptied within 10 minutes of arrival. Service appalling, waited an hour for starters and another 35 minutes for mains. When questioned told it was very busy. Table booked over a month previously, if kitchen cannot handle restaurant at half capacity bookings should not be taken. Very poor.
Menu and food was amazing compliments to the chef. Service was first class
Delicious food, very attentive staff and lovely surroundings.
Booked private dining room for family birthday. Service and setting were spot on and we enjoyed a great evening. Food was very good.
Returning guest although after a few yeras. Booking: very good, straightforward, liked the reminder (it was fo13:30, not 13:00) Service: excellent. Good reception. Our waitress was excellent, explaining dishes clearly. Delivery of dishes: a bit of a let down with delays comparing with other guests arriving at same time. Understand there might have been a build up because of earler late arrivals. Could have been an issue. Ambience: marked down as we felt the furniture (tables) seemed 'out of place' withe the rest of the decor. Looked more suitable for a pub environment. Food: Overall very good but felt that the cheese portions were on the 'mean' side (or did we have too many crackers?) and would prefer the pickled beetroot in a slice rather than cubes. Will visit again.
Fantastic - you surpassed expectations on all fronts. Well done+
We celebrated a birthday. The staff made that little extra effort- my Sister had a wonderful time. Overall experience-10/10. Definitely revisit
The staff that were working on our visit were so friendly and welcoming. It seemed genuine too, as opposed to because they had to be.
Food was amazing best meal we have had in ages. We would definitely go back
It took over 2 hours to bring in our mains. Quite a disappointment
Outstanding as always. The best restaurant in Winch by a country mile and that includes the Michelin star neighbour down the road. Perfect. Thank you
Delicious food and fab service. Probably the best food I have ever had in Hampshire. At a restaurant.
Service was friendly and professional. Food was stunning and delicious. I'd definitely eat there again.
Perfectly cooked delicious three course early dinner in Winchester's most relaxing and atmospheric restaurant. Service was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The restaurant was full but our corner seat was quiet. It's great to be able to have a conversation without feeling hoarse by the end of the meal.
We had a fantastic lunch and was a real treat - our food and drink was lovely and the service was perfect too
Great cocktails, great food, really good service, a unique location. The young woman who served us upstairs and made our cocktails was very good, knew her wines and spirits.
What an amazing evening for my wife’s 40th birthday lovely atmosphere and food and wine to die for If your looking for a 10/10 meal look no further The wards
Staff were Amazing. held a private function and they were so helpful so that everything went well. Food was delicious
