Located close to the cathedral is the Wykeham Arms. An old atmospheric pub steeped in history. Food is excellent but you really need to book to ensure you get a table especially at weekends. There is small area outdoors to have a drink. Don't try...More

OK, so I Love this pub as a pub. It's quintessentially an old English pub with log fires, great beers, great ambience and just lovely surroundings. I have heard variable reports about the food for some years now... however thought we'd give it a go...More

We booked early at noon and the place was almost empty at that time. We waited almost an hour for sandwiches - when they finally arrived the bread was dry, bordering on stale. What a disappointment, especially given the fact that some of the sandwiches...More

We visited on a very cold and bracing December evening. It's situated in the Heart of Winchester, just a short walk from the magnificent Cathedral and it is a gem. Just walking in from the cold was an experience in itself, as well as a...More
