We went for my sons burthday, they forgot the starters and the way they managed it was poor. Overall heard great things but we had poor service, food and follow up. Would find it difficult to recommend.

My husband and I have been in a few times since it was taken over by new owners recently and always thought it nice. This evening we were totally blown away. The food was excellent as was the service. Our waitress (blonde girl in a striped shirt) knew exactly about what my husband with dietary requirements could eat without checking...

Lovely atmosphere, their decor is very well put together to create a homey, almost Sherlock Holmesian atmosphere. The barman with the long blonde hair was very helpful in selecting me the perfect spiced rum as I'd never heard of the brands up on the shelf and I felt very valued as a customer. I also came in here for some...

Management response:

What absolute twaddle. When I came to clear your table I noticed your children were missing from the table. It was 8.30pm so not really an “early dinner”. I asked where they were. I was told they had gone to play in the garden. I did say they should not be in the garden at this time of night as...

Rooms are big and lovely, with new bathrooms and confortable beds. the pub has a wonderful atmosphere and the food is good. Very Nice people. This was calm at night. Winchester is worth the visit (marvellous cathedral).

We recently stayed at the pub on 2 separate occasions to visit family in the area and both our stays were excellent. Our rooms were large, well furnished and spotless with great bathrooms and comfortable beds. I had thought that accomodation over a pub might be noisy, but the bedrooms were quiet even on the weekend.The staff were friendly and...

popped into The King Alfred for sunday lunch. We didn't arrive until 2.45 & the kitchen was closing at 3. Luckily there was a table free & we quickly ordered drinks & food. I had beef bourguignon with winter greens. It was delicious. My wife had roast pork which she said was very good. The service was very polite &...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A stay at The King Alfred offers you everything you would expect from a boutique hotel but in a cosy, relaxed pub setting - great beds and linen, a classic pub menu just cooked really well and super friendly staff many of whom have lived in Winchester forever so would happily chat to you about what to see and where to go! Our location is ideal for both leisure and business guests. Tucked away in the friendly Winchester suburb of Hyde, we are about a 15 minute stroll from the city centre with its historic cathedral and diverse collection of independent and high street shops. We can offer convenient , free parking outside the pub with the use of one of our permits. Or if you are travelling by train we are just a short taxi ride or a 10 minute walk from the station. Accessed via a private entrance so you can come and go as you please, we have four double rooms and one twin all with en-suite showers, TVs and tea and coffee making facilities. Downstairs in the bar you'll discover cosy corners and eclectic treasures. Grab a drink, settle in and let us do the rest. ... more   less
