I think best to put this review as bullet points. Sorry, but there are too many plus points to this place! * Location, its like a postcard. * Outside seating, over-looking the river. * A Fullers pub. The interior has the old London look/feel to...More

On a 4-day visit to Winchester, the Bishop on the Bridge became our local. We ate there the first night because it was close to our B&B, and really enjoyed it. We ate at another pub the next night that had been recommended to us,...More

Visited this pub for lunch one Sunday while having a day out in Winchester. Went for the roast as it looked so good - not cheap at £18 per head but was presented really nicely, tasted good and was very filling! We all went for...More

This pub, with its riverside location and so close to the town centre, has been a favourite haunt of ours for a number of years, and the food, whilst not exceptional, has generally been perfectly good. Today, however, we ordered a burger, ham hock and...More

That's a real shame.... I'm actually less than impressed with the new style falafel burger too, and your feedback will only help me with maybe getting it replaced. Coming from a family of vegetarians, I know they don't like to be short changed. As for...More

Good pub food. Friendly Staff. Ample portions. Fuller's ale. we booked in advance and were pleased as the eatery filled up during the lunch hour. Only downside - the loos looked a little tired.
