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.
Wonderful meal, excellent food, friendly service.
We had a terrific evening in atmospheric and exquisite surroundings, enjoying fine food (the haddock risotto and stogies were rich and full of flavour) and remarkedly honest and friendly service, under difficult circumstances, and they surprised us with an anniversary gesture that was well received, couldnt fault it and would love to to come again with friends . Bravo!
A delicious meal in a lovely restaurant with fantastic staff. The risotto was heavenly... we cant wait till you reopen! Best wishes to you all and many thanks Niki & Duncan
Wishing you all well through these turbulent times
A delicious meal with attentive service. Thank you
Really good. We all enjoyed our lunch immensely.
Amazing food & amazing service
Friendly service, really good meal and great location.
Asked for a quiet table, this was offered and much appreciated. Service and food as always excellent. Big thanks to all staff
Excellent food, decent wine list, engaging staff, beautiful old building.
The only thing that marred our meal was the man with the loud voice at the table next to us, but that wasn’t something the restaurant could control!!!! Other than that - gorgeous. I will ask to sit upstairs next time, in the hope that it might be quieter. Thank you for giving us a lovely lunch.
Food was excellent and staff very helpful and the building is a beautiful setting
Fantastic early bird menu which is always changing. Have visited at least 5 or 6 times and have always had a wonderful meal.
Great contrast of modern British menus in an authentic medievall setting. Great food and excellent service. Ticks all the boxes.
Lovely food, great feast, great flavours. I will always return. Xxx
Don't want to waste too many words......food was just great! Also loved the cosy atmosphere. Has definitely become my favourite restaurant in Winchester.
Definitely a nice experience!! I will go back next time I visit Winchester
5 stars all round. Excellent food in an unique environment. Winchester has some of the best and oldest and the Chesil must be on your list if you are near.
We ordered the taster menu with wines as an anniversary treat. The food was of an exceptional quality and the information provided about each wine and why it was paired with the course was really interesting. The atmosphere was really cosy and the service was outstanding, they could not have done more for us. I cannot wait to find an excuse to visit again.
Amazing Nutroast, but Lamb a little on the stringy side. Banana Bread dessert a bit dry, although the Rhubarb Crumble and Custard was awesome. The venue had bucket-loads of character and staff really helpful and attentive. Will be looking for any excuse to go again!
We had a wonderful day, thanks to the beautiful surroundings, lovely meal and friendly staff.
Excellent food and service beautiful setting
What a wonderful, atmospheric setting. Drinks were a little slow to arrive at the start but the staff were lovely, the food was divine and the timing between courses was nice and relaxed. So glad I chose here for my birthday, we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Welcoming reception followed by attentive and pleasant - but not intrusive - service throughout. Good range of menu choices and delighted with the quality of all we ate - attention to detail in presentation added to highest standard of cooking and selection of ingredients. Tasted 5 wines by the glass between us - spoilt for choice with the interesting grape selection and enthused about the taste and serving. Could not have had a better experience - you deserve to be as popular as you are.
