Boasting a superb trio of AA Rosettes, The Avenue Restaurant brings supreme British cuisine to the Lainston House Hotel. Taking its name from the mile-long avenue of lime trees viewed from your table, The Avenue is an intimate, elegant restaurant.

The diverse Avenue menu comes courtesy of a talented brigade of chefs, with Olly Rouse at the helm. Championing the finest home-grown Hampshire produce, Olly’s cooking is influenced by nature, individual flavours and traditional techniques from around the world. A superb and varied a la carte menu and 8-course gourmet tasting menu are presented for each service with an additional 2 or 3-course seasonal menu available at lunchtime.

Exquisitely dressed tables, scarlet leather armchairs and rich wood wall panelling make for a distinguished and nostalgic setting, where guests can enjoy a bin from the extensive cellar. Sommelier Alberto Almeida meticulously selects fine vintages and easy-drinking bottles, with every blend available by the glass.

Set in a beautifully restored 17th-century site, the award-winning Avenue restaurant offers a quintessentially British dining experience. Central Winchester is a 10-minute drive away.

    How to spend your 65th birthday, having champagne with afternoon tea on a sunny afternoon with my husband on the terrace of Lainston house with stunning views.
