The food was excellent and the service was equally as good. The menu choices were just right. All the staff were attentive and knowledgeable. They there when needed without being intrusive. Stunning building Would definitely visit again with friends to hopefully try the taster menu next time.

What a superb luncheon on Sunday. Food was outstanding, service friendly and so, so efficient. the quality of the food was amazing. I particularly enjoyed the wine choice. Good selection and not overpriced. A really enjoyable day was thoroughly enjoyed by the four of us. Can't wait to go back!

We have been coming to the Chesil Rectory since it opened and always love eating here although, as we no longer live in the UK, our visits have been reduced to once a year. It is something that we make sure we always include in our itinerary when we visit Winchester/Southampton.
