About Chesil Rectory
The Chesil Rectory is a unique and historic restaurant located in Winchester which occupies a 600 year old grade II listed Medieval house of exceptional character and charm. Independently owned since 2008 by a small group of friends who share a passion for food and wine, the Chesil Rectory offers a modern British menu featuring simple, classic, seasonal dishes and an abundance of fresh local produce.
Delicious food with excellent service. Very glad to have visited your restaurant for a birthday celebration and the last night of our family holiday.
An excellent meal, thank you.
What an amazing way to spend the afternoon of my graduation day. The staff are amazing with the right amount of attention and the food the chefs produce is exquisite. We will visit again soon.
Great evening, thank you, and thank you for finding extra space for us
Excellent lunch. Fantastic staff. Just a brilliant experience. Thank you.
We had a fabulous lunch .As we were a large group for my daughter's Graduation , we were kindly given a private dining room upstairs beautifully laid out with flowrrs and candles . The food was well presented and tasty.
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.
Fantastic meal as always.
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.
Very good food, esp. starters
A historical building with some of the best food I have had in a long time and doting staff!
Fabulous place, food and staff, would recommend it to all!
A little pricey but always top notch for food, drink, hospitality..a place for special occasions and special memories!
Great food and service
First time we have been and we look forward to returning soon. Lovely food and friendly staff.
Once again another amazing meal at this wonderful restaurant. The staff were attentive and James the manager was really helpful and accommodating.
Lamb was amazing.
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.
Lovely, friendly atmosphere. Staff are wonderful and we have always enjoyed what's on the menu.
This restaurant has an amazing history and we are glad we were able to dine here during our time in England!
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.
We thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
We enjoy the food but your table service is fantastic.
We often dine at the Chesil. It's always been superb.
