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.
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.
Thanks for a lovely meal celebrating our daughter’s 21st birthday We all had a great time
The food and venue as always was absolutely superb we really couldn’t fault it. We just wished the service had matched. We had two servers, the lady who was serving us was really great, she was polite friendly and attentive and really helped make the meal special. However the second server (a young chap) didn’t smile once and seemed to rush everything. An example of this was the bread and mix at the beginning. We only knew what the mix was because the lady serving us informed the table next to us... That said we would rush back again and again! Thank you
Another faultless performance from the Chesil team. Many thanks, Steven
The food was well cooked but sparse portion size of the starter and the vegetable accompaniment to the main course let the overall quantity not quality of the meal down. Otherwise the atmosphere and service were excellent.
Lovely place. Staff so friendly and exceptional food. Tables were a little too close and felt everyone could hear you. But loved it and will definitely come again.
Everything was superb, the food, the location, gorgeous & festive. The only small thing letting it down, was that the we had to wait a long time between courses.
Lovely food, great staff. Really enjoyable lunch.
Pleasant comfortable setting and excellent food.
Delicious food and warm atmosphere.
Had a wonderful Sunday Lunch with family in their private Dining Room. Everything was perfect from food, service, ambience to decor. The restaurant is in a wonderful old building dating back to 1400s. Thank you to all the staff. We have already booked for next year!
Some of the best food we've had in a long while. Cosy restaurant set in a beautiful old timber-framed building. Would definitely recommend.
Everything was perfect. Food, atmosphere, service . The only regret is that we live to faraway to come more often . Don’t change anything .
11 of us had a meal in the private dining area and the food, room and our waiter were all superb. Really enjoyable evening.
Had the tasting menu a and wine pairing. Wines good, lamb and dessert courses by far the best.. service and pace of food good.
Great food, great staff, great atmosphere. The building is full of charm and character. I can’t recommend the Chesil Rectory enough - fantastic evening.
