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.
Enjoyed the meal. The staff were very helpful and professional. We pre-booked our meal and as one of our group couldn't make it on the night, we still had to pay for his meal. Perhaps the conditions of pre-booking could be made much clearer to each person when they pay their deposit or a reminder sent to the group organiser a few days beforehand. Thank you.
Everything was great. Please just fix the seat in the right hand ladies loo. A huge oversight, what a shame!
Very nice atmosphere, friendly staff, great food
We really enjoyed our meal thank you. We eat out quite often in London and your mixture of atmosphere, food and service was very particular and enjoyable. The maitre d also enhanced our evening. Best wishes
Small portion size for dessert. Service was rather slow. Crackling missed from main course initially but rectified on questioning. Nice atmosphere. Bit pricey.
Your bench seating upstairs is too low and makes uncomfortable seating
Thank you for an amazing evening.
Great service & food in a lovely setting
The chocolate birthday wishes at the end of the meal were a very sweet touch, greatly appreciated. Service was impeccable, lovely and professional, and the food was a pleasure. Would definitely recommend and come back soon.
Fantastic meal - the BEST Sunday lunch ever had!
We have a lovely evening at the Chesil with fantastic food and excellent service - we plan to return next year.
We were a group of 11 people on a works Christmas lunch from Surrey. It was easy to organise for me. The private room was just stunning! They had the service down to a T knowing the names of all the diners and what they had ordered. The food was fantastic, delicious. The staff were just lovely and we had the nicest day! All of this made me look good too! Looking to redo this with another group soon!
We had an absolutely fantastic company Christmas dinner in the private dining room. The venue is beautiful, and the food was superb. Staff were excellent, we had a tasting before the dinner with Erica Dent who knows the crew well, and they timed the starter to coincide with the end of her tasting so it segued perfectly. A big thank you to everyone!
The Chesil Rectory is a lovely location for Christmas Parties. The food and service is always excellent. We had a lovely time. Thank you.
Fantastic evening, lovely setting, very informative and friendly staff who were all extremely efficient. Superb food . Couldn’t fault it in any way and will definitely be back. Thank you for making our Christmas night out so special.
We plan our trips to Winchester around when we can get a table at the Chesil, that's how much we love it.
Great Food and really really good service.
Fantastic service, atmosphere and the quality of food was excellent
Great service, expensive for portion sizes but great quality
Fantastic friendly service and wonderful food. We really enjoyed our evening - thank you.
We took friends and had a very enjoyable evening. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming, the building is old and interesting and we had great service. One of our party is a coeliac and this was no problem. The food was delicious and the venison was particularly good. It was everything we had expected.
Fantastic food and service, we will be back!
Thank you for such a lovely evening. The staff were brilliant, and catered for our big booking. The private area you put us in was fantastic, the food delish and the ambience was lovely too.
The hospitality was fantastic, we were made to feel very welcome, the place was cosy and the food was delicious and we'll presented.
Wonderful food and great service.
