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.
Excellent as always
Delightful Christmas lunch with great food and excellent service. I was asked immediately afterwards to book here again for next year!
Lovely food and friendly service.
Lovely cosy atmosphere on a cold day. Friendly attentive staff.
I took my wife to the Chesil Rectory for her birthday (for the second year running). We had the Christmas menu, which was very good from start to finish. The service was top notch, and my wife was given a special "happy birthday" plate with a bit of fudge and chocolate truffle, which was a nice touch (and according to my wife, delicious).
excellent service, nothing was too much trouble, all guests said how much they enjoyed the food. it made a 60th birthday gettogether a memorable day
Absolutely beautiful food and the service was fantastic too.
The food was absolutely amazing! Service was great! Had a perfect evening. Thank so much.
Fabulous food And service in a relaxed unique setting. Highly recommended !
Lovely setting...nice food
This was a brilliant venue for a family get together. Furnishings and decorations perfect. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The food was wonderful. So I can't think of any negative comment to make. I would definitely consider coming back if I was planning a similar event
It was such a joy to come to the Chesil for our 1st anniversary of meeting. From the service to the food was brilliant. We both enjoyed it so much, that we will be back again.
One of our party had to move his chair a few times to let someone past, so it was a little crowded. However, the food was overall very good and the building itself is wonderful.
Relaxed atmosphere adds to the ambience. Generous portions don’t leave you wondering if you have eaten! Good service despite a full house.
Excellent Christmas menu which our party of six throughly enjoyed. Such a beautiful building, albeit a bit hot.
This was a girls lunch and we were impressed the moment we stepped through the door, the staff were attentive but not over powering, The portions of food were adequate for us an was cooked to perfection. We could not fault a thing.
Fabulous lunch, no complaints at all and I didn’t bang my head on the front door!
I brought my girlfriend for her birthday treat, though I forgot to tell you. It was astonishing and would love to return. Food, atmosphere and staff were amazing. Thank you
A relaxed and enjoyable evening with excellent food. We'd happily visit again.
Lovely evening. Beautifully cooked food.
Thank you for making my wife's birthday such an amazing occasion. The staff were so charming and welcoming, the food was excellent and the decor makes it the most romantic restaurant imaginable. Truly outstanding evening.
Overall the food was excellent but felt the desserts could have been a little warmer and felt it should say on the menu that the apple crumble is a cold dessert. However, this is only a minor criticism and on the whole we had a wonderful evening in a lovely, comfortable setting with great service and food still worthy of its 5 stars.
This restaurant is a treasure waiting to be discovered. The food is outstanding -so much so that we travelled over an hour to get to Winchester just to eat there. This was our second time and we were not disappointed. The service was discreet but responsive and we felt unhurried.The building is charming and it was good to be somewhere that is not a chain and has its own character.We will be back.
Superb Sunday lunch. Highly recommended
Fantastic lunch in unique surroundings, thoroughly recommend.
