Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
“For unique character it’s hard to beat” this “attractive, exceptional and historic old building” which is “hands down the loveliest space to dine in, and perfect for special occasions” (especially of a romantic nature). The “delicious” food is hailed by fans as arguably Winchester’s best (“though if visiting regularly the menu can become somewhat predictable”).
In terms of elegance, this “beautiful” and “romantic” destination is arguably the town’s best, and “friendly” service and highly rated food complete a positive picture. Top Tip – “the pre-theatre fixed price menu is very good indeed”.
The “beautiful” ancient building is the star of the show, if you visit this “romantic” central feature. “It’s been through many reincarnations over the years, and this is one of the better ones”, providing “an all-round, very good experience”.
“In an ancient beamed building in the heart of the city”, this “gem” of a restaurant has “bags of atmosphere”, and – with its “good” and “interesting” cuisine – most reporters find it “an absolute delight” all-round.
