About Chesil Rectory
We're sure you saw the scaffolding outside - the building has had a fresh coat of paint & we've spruced up the garden so it’s once again abundant with flowers, olive trees, bay, rosemary & thyme, and we are ready to open our doors!
We have a delicious new a la carte menu available, with our set-price menu also available at lunchtime.
We will also soon be re-commencing our Chesil at Home service, to be pre-ordered at least 48 hours in advance, with collection slots available between 5-6pm Thursday, Friday & Saturday -- perfect for family gatherings!
Our first visit to your restaurant and it lived up to our expectations! Food amazing staff friendly and atmosphere relaxed! We will definitely be back !
An oasis of calm in a weird world, with fabulous food and service.
The meal was absolutely perfect, no complaints whatsoever. The service was professional, unfussy but very friendly. I couldn’t think of anything they could improve on.
Great food and wine
Another stunning meal at the Chesil. Delicious roast lunch and still talking about the cauliflower cheese. An unusual, but very delicious NV red topped off a very enjoyable afternoon.
First time back since the lockdown and never disappoints. The Sunday roast was excellent and the King Prawn starter was full of different flavours. We were very pleased. The staff are very good, pleasant, knowledgeable and attentive. A credit to the management training.
Exciting and inventive set lunch menu, beautifully presented. Excellent value.
Beautiful place for a special meal
Really excellent dinner at The Chesil - all delicious, freshly prepared, well sourced ingredients. They were also brilliant at adapting menu for my gluten/dairy allergy. For our family, The Chesil is fine dining but without the stuffiness/formality you can get at other establishments and you can't beat the building for character.
Had a fantastic time celebrating my birthday. The food was superb and the service was great. Good wine slection as well. Will definitely visit again when we're next back in Winchester.
My favourite restaurant in Winchester - I have always had an excellent meal, served by very friendly, pleasant staff in lovely surrounding of the oldest building in Winchester. A thoroughly lovely afternoon enjoying first class cuisine - thank you and look forward to a return visit.
Forget the big celebrity chains. Chesil outdoes them on every score.
Fantastic surroundings and food, great wine, wonderful evening. Service very friendly but a bit inexperienced versus previous visits.
Wonderful relaxed evening enjoying outstanding food and wine.
We had a wonderful time, the food and service was excellent.
Another great lunch
Really enjoyed our first visit here and will definitely return ...soon .
Fine Dining Indeed!!
Beautiful setting, delicious food on the great value lunch menu, I had the mackerel starter which was fresh and zinging with flavour and the chicken with tarragon cream for mains which was so moist and delicious. We took my mother for a 80th Birthday celebration lunch and you made her feel very special. Thank you for such a delicious lunch.
Gorgeous food !
Wonderful food and great service. Very much looking forward to visiting again.
Lovely to have local ingredients in really interesting recipes. Excellent standard of cooking and service.
We booked a birthday special garden lunch and were "welcomed" by the information that covid had closed the garden. Since I have been shielding, that left us witha dilema. We realised (having walked) we wouldn't find anywhere else to eat so took the table. No staff have masks or visors. One stood very close. We made these points at the end of the meal but have not heard from the Cheshil. The web site is still talking about the re-vamped garden.& glorious seating area. Your explanation?
Lovely lunch in a beautiful atmosphere and fully Covid secure .. thank you
We went for the Sunday lunch it was excellent, the food was very good especially the goats cheese and beetroot starter. It was my sons birthday and he was given some birthday truffles a lovely touch. We felt very safe dining here the place was spotless.
