A tranquil conservatory-style eatery looking out over beautiful grounds, The Garden Restaurant at The Winchester Royal Hotel is a charming escape at this 16th-century hotel. Imaginative British fare is complemented by an extensive wine list and local beers, while the classic afternoon teas can be enjoyed in the gardens, weather permitting.

Modern takes on wholesome British recipes are beautifully presented on The Garden Restaurant menu. The freshest seasonal ingredients are used throughout, as seen in starters like confit rabbit terrine with plum and rhubarb purée, and hearty mains including oven-roasted lamb rump with chunky vegetable and butterbean ragoût, spring onion mash and redcurrant jus. Delicacies for vegetarians include exotic mushrooms with garlic and parsley cream in a puff pastry case, while from the grill there are succulent cuts of steak, and a signature burger. There is also a dedicated children's menu.

Afternoon teas at The Garden Restaurant at The Winchester Royal Hotel hold true to celebrated British traditions, offering soft finger sandwiches with a range of fillings, as well as scones with jam and clotted cream, exotic loose leaf teas, and glasses of prosecco for an indulgent treat.

A stunning example of British tradition mixed with innovative luxury, The Garden Restaurant is just round the corner from the stunning Winchester Cathedral, and only 8 minutes' walk from Winchester Rail Station.

    We had afternoon tea in the garden and it was a delightful experience. The staff were friendly and helpful but not intrusive, the sandwiches and scones were fresh and we enjoyed it so much we even stayed for a glass of wine!

    Very pleasant location in Winchester centre with secluded garden centre hotel. The building is vert traditional and quite quaint.
    Restaurant service was very friendly and accommodating. Meal, on the other hand, was not up to expectations.

    Lovely dinners (we had 2) and very good breakfasts (again 2), great staff, good wine. Altogether clean, tidy & comfortable environment with good ambience. Only issue due to implementation of new ordering software which resulted in one of our dinner main courses not being ordered and consequential very long delay after first course .
    Thought some chairs and tables rather incomfortable because some tables too low?
