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.

    It was my daughter’s 40th birthday sobtreated her to afternoon tea. It was lovely we sat in the garden food was great as was the service.

    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?

  • ((((( 29 March 2018 by Dot from Winchester

    The restaurant was not busy at all, at 3.30pm, so we were served quickly. The afternoon tea was amazing and so filling that we were unable to finish everything, but the staff very kindly wrapped the uneaten cakes so that we could take them with us. We were also offered refills for our teapots during the afternoon. It was beautifully presented and the only minor disagreement of the experience was the debate between ourselves as to whether to put jam or cream first onto the scrumptious scones (we agreed to differ, amicably).

    Been here loads before, but this time was a totally different experience. If I was being generous I would say they were short of staff, but there were no explanations or apologies despite our drinks taking 40 mins to arrive and our food an hour. Total time sitting in the restaurant (for just 2 courses) was over 3 hours. Whilst the staff wre lovely, the time taken was outrageous, the coffee cold and poor quality, as was the vegetarian main. For £130 for 6 (6 mains and only 2 puddings) it was a very disappointing experience, especially as we had all travelled a fair distance to eat there. Sadly we are unlikely to return

    The food was OK, it tasted nice but the Caramel source tasted like toffee source with the sticky toffee pudding. The restaurant was quiet but we were well looked after.

    Superb food. Enjoyed the Vegetable Wellington so much I had it two nights running when staying at the Winchester Royal Hotel!

  • ((((( 24 November 2017 by Alys from Bristol

    The setting was light and airy. We had a nice big table with plenty of room - even enough for my friend with a broken leg to rest it on a spare chair. The food was tasty and reasonably priced, and we were served quickly. I’d recommend Sunday lunch there to anyone.
