It's a MUST to book as very popular with locals. Simple menu but everything is cooked perfectly and great friendly service. The Beer is well kept and the Timothy Taylor was perfect. If you like whiskey (which I don't) then have a special menu and the same for their range of cheeses. If you are in Winchester then a great...

Stayed here for my girlfriends birthday. Fantastic service upon arrival from the team and continued throughout. Room was large, well appointed with a great view over the street towards the famous cathedral. The following morning we opted for a breakfast in bed option which arrived, on time and with everything one needed to enjoy a hearty and delicious breakfast whilst...

Have been using The Old Vine for a weekly lunch and have always had good food at a reasonable price amongst lovely surroundings......Menu does changeand they are quite happy to allow a starter, sandwich and dessert if the mains appear to much for a lunch...........

An overnight getaway with my wife took us to this fabulous pub with accommodation. From arrival to departure the staff were fantastic. The atmosphere was super, the food excellent and the location outstanding.

This review is of the bar area NOT the hotel accommodation. A crowded pub with all bar and restaurant seats reserved or taken by 12:30 on a Saturday but we found a quiet bright extension at the back with empty tables. Good ale and tasty 'Hampshire sausage' baguettes were consumed with pleasure in this quiet corner of a popular pub....

A picture frame with our name greeted us on our table. Can't fault our server, the food, the service or location right in the centre of Winchester, within just a few yards of Winchester Cathedral. Definitely worth a visit but no Roast on Sundays; probably the only thing I could suggest to offer your guests.

Thank you very much! We'd love to offer a Sunday roast but our kitchen is just too small - and unless we can do it properly we don't think it's worth doing. So unless you can get us planning permission to extend our kitchen (fingers crossed) then regretfully we will have to give roasts a miss

popped in here on spec after looking round the cathedral lovely atmosphere and the food was of a good standard with a modern twist on traditional pub food. The service was also very good and the location is ideal for central Winchester

This pub is perfectly positioned in the centre of Winchester. The pub itself was always bustling during our stay, but service was friendly and the food was good. We stayed in the Design House Suite at the top of the hotel and were able to have breakfast delivered to our door each morning at no additional cost - that really...
