Amazing food, amazing prices on set menu and nice options. Only reason didn’t get 5 stars for value is wine prices.
Just epic fantastic seasonal food. Great gluten free options
the food was quirky, original and delicious! The staff are very professional and friendly. Great atmosphere due to the decor. I’d highly recommend this restaurant. Would definitely go back!
Great food, service and ambiance. It is a great place to enjoy an excellent winter's meal in front of a wood fire.
The food was absolutely delicious and it was fantastic to try some unusual dishes which we wouldn’t normally get to experience. Our visit was thanks to a wedding gift from friends and made for a great cosy, romantic and special evening. The service was exceptional - the staff were on hand for all of our needs and to answer any questions, without being too obtrusive at the same time. A really intimate experience.
Michelin Star fully deserved. Interesting, visually very appealing. Small restaurant. Just superb! But not cheap, but good value.
Very well cooked food, some unusual choices and combinations which please our adventurous teenagers. Lovely old and atmospheric building
Great flavours and precise cooking. The best meal we have had in a long time in Winchester.
Wonderful as always - as a vegetarian I sometimes find it difficult eating at nice restaurants. Although there was only one choice for vegetarians the choices were amazing - very different to the normal and all cooked to perfection and with a variety of yummy flavours. This meal was such good value and completely worth the 30 minute drive. would recommend to anyone.
Great food, excellent service
Great food and great service. Altough not a gin drinker myself but the one that was suggested to me was lovely. Will definitely be coming back soon.
Great service, lovely food perfect for a lunchtime birthday celebration.
My husband and I had Sunday lunch here as our son had given us a voucher towards the meal. Everything was delicious and we may consider coming again although it is very much in the top price bracket and the cheapest wine was about £30. Certainly worth coming for a special treat.
I am sorry to say that our experience was both disappointing and frustrating. One of the waitresses had a terrible attitude, was very rude and put us on edge from the get go. The food was also pretty disappointing, both starter and main were very bland and unimaginative, while the desert was overly rich. While the other staff were a lot nicer, the service wasn't great in general. Not particularly attentive, or helpful, and we were left waiting to order longer than comfortable.
The waitress mentioned above was very rude and condescending. Not answering what we'd asked, and instead going on some strange rant, seemingly just to talk down to us. After taking our orders, we could hear her swearing at one of the other waiters in the background, and seemingly swearing about us too. The rest of the evening was nicer, but we were obviously on edge from this encounter and couldn't enjoy our evening as planned.
We've eaten at similarly priced places and had much better service, experience and food.
Considering this was a special occasion, we were not local, had to travel, and were paying the price for a Michelin star restaurant, we would definitely not recommend this place to anyone.
Fantastic food and great service in cosy surroundings. The flavour combinations where great and the Gin menu was equally impressive.
I’m a fan of food. Ambiance, while lovely, is not my prime concern when I dine. When I am served something outstanding I am the first person to sing the praises of the chef. Although the food on Sunday presented well on the plate, there was no flavor worth noting. Apart from a rocher of tea flavored sorbet on my dessert, I didn’t find much to get excited about. My beef tongue was like chewing fat that had the flavor boiled out of it. The texture was not pleasant either. I wouldn’t say I’m a heart connoisseur but my wifes lamb heart could have been treated a tad better. I preferred the barley on her plate over almost everything on mine. To make a short story longer... bland was on the menu for Sunday lunch. I left the restaurant feeling I had been robbed of the experience I expected from a Michelin level cook. The highlight of the meal was the craft g&t courtesy of a local distillery. I’m definitely having that again.
Utterly unbelievable, the whole process was out of this world! I am booking up again soon
Great service and delicious well presented seasonal food. Will definitely go back and recommend for special occasions.
Fantastic food complimented by an excellent service.
Lovely starter but my main course was bordering on unpleasant Beware of the unpriced gin menu!
Great evening- fantastic food and ambience. Tables quite close together in the smaller of the two dining rooms, but cosy atmosphere in 18thC building with candles and fresh flowers.
Service, friendliness of staff and knowledge of dishes impeccable.
Presentation of food impressive; and interesting and delicious combinations of flavours.
Adapted a main course to remove unwanted ingredient.
2 small comments- uncertain about having music- difficult to suit all tastes, especially in a small room.
Frequency of wine-pouring: a little too often.
Will definitely return
The food was beautifully presented, interesting , different and delicious.
I would have preferred a little more choice on the lunch set menu, but all the food was very good, and the atmosphere was quiet & private.
What a fantastic dining experience! Have already booked for the next meal.
Wonderful and slightly unusual food in a chilled and cosy setting. Delicious. Definitely coming back on the train so I can sample some of the gin!!
Absolutely outstanding service and food. Will definitely be back.
It was my daughter's 18th birthday, and they gave the three of us an unforgettable evening. Attentive staff, excellent wine list, fab food
Unbeatable for excellent and wisely creative food selection and supremely talented cooking; excellent wine list and charming staff.
Although the meal was pleasant I wouldn't regard it as exceptional.We had the lunch time set menu a choice of 3. We felt the length of time between the courses was too long.
The front of house staff were very friendly and helpful.
We had lunch as a belated Christmas present for my husband and were very impressed. The staff were very knowledgeable about the food and helpful in checking that it was suitable for me to eat (I'm pregnant). The food itself was spectacular, and my husband's wine was delicious. The dining area was chilly initially, but it is a very old building, and we warmed up once food was served.
The Chocolate Marquise dessert was a hit, the little jelly cubes are packed with black fruit flavour, a perfect companion for the rich chocolate and creamy sloe gin yogurt. Thank you, we'll be back, and will spread the word!
Lovely ambience, great service, excellent wine list and wonderful food. The menu is not large but there is something there for everybody. Two people, three courses, two bottles of wine and a glass of port for a fraction over £200. For a Michelin Star restaurant this is exceptionally good value. We stayed over the road in the Black Hole which I also recommend.
Such a lovely time, staff are lovely, food is amazing, with the best choice of wine. Music could have been slightly louder to drown out neighbours a bit better that's all. We would definitely go back (when we've saved up!)
Lovely food and service. Great looking restaurant. Well spaced tables. Overall excellent
Had the set Lunch Taster Menu which had a good choice with some unusual dishes.
Waiting staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and enquired during each course if everything was ok.
Background music just loud enough so we could hear each other speak and tables far enough apart so that we didn't have to listen to other peoples conversations.
Well worth a visit. Very enjoyable.
This is our favourite restaurant. The food is imaginative and always surprises in taste and texture. The ingredients are first class and seasonal. It has a cosy, relaxed atmosphere and the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Cannot praise it enough.
More than lived up to its reputation. The menu descriptions were intriguing but the actual plates of food and taste combination proved to be outstanding.
We'll definitely be back.
The atmosphere was cozy and welcoming. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Although not on the menu, they do do some delicious non alcoholic cocktails. There is an extensive wine and gin list. Food is unusual but very tasty!
We spent a great evening celebrating my wife’s birthday enjoying creative dishes in a very relaxed restaurant. The staff had described our plates very professionally making it a very pleasant evening.
Fantastic food and wine and the staff were wonderful.
eating room was a bit cold
toilets a bit small and pokey
Absolutely love this restaurant! Fantastic food and lovely staff in a characterful environment..it’s got everything!
