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!

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.

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!

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.
