We visited on a Monday night, which we booked a week ahead. I ordered a pint of Flowerpots Ale, brewed locally, and my wife chose a glass of Nobilo Marlborough sauvignon blanc. The amuse-bouches were very tasty, mine contained delicious smoked duck and stilton. Mussels were on the menu but had run out, so we chose the prawn, crab and... More

We called in on a Saturday lunchtime without a booking - the staff were friendly and found us a table. I had the salmon and poached egg which was delicious my husband had the crab sandwich which he said was also amazing. By the time we left it was full - we had a great lunch.

Excellent all round. Greeting on arrival, quality of the room, quality of the food and value for money. Really nice room with tea / coffee and excellent bathroom facilities. Food was some of the best I've had recently and the bar had plenty of room for locals and also visitors like myself. Breakfast was delivered to the room and was... More

What a great lunch we had today - great food with excellent service. My wild mushroom risotto was just perfect, as was my husband's trio of Hampshire pork. Our friends both enjoyed fish dishes - a beautifully presented crab, prawn & avocado salad, and the duo of battered fish. The selection of local cheeses was enough for two to share,... More

We have eaten here numerous times and we have always had lovely food, it's sourced locally also. The ales are great and a good choice. My wife enjoys the bubbly, a lot... highly recommended.

I ate here as part of my work's Christmas meal. The food is very nice and they have plenty of space to Accomodate large parties or groups. Maybe a little more expensive than most but very nice, simple food.

I don't know how it happened but a friend and I seem to have set out on a mission to find a Great Sunday Lunch in or around Winchester. When I say Sunday Lunch I really mean Sunday Roast. The Bugle was our latest Guinea pig, mainly based on the excellent reviews it gets. It's a lovely pub both inside... More

We have visited Winchester several times over the last few months, we have always enjoyed the city and the food. We had previously seen the pub in the top position and said we would give it a try. Passing on our way to Southampton we popped off the motorway for lunch. It was excellent all round, nice to get the... More

We had Sunday lunch here. Good service, Roast Beef very good- as long as you like it rare- which I certainly do. The Roast Pork and a Lamb pie was also pronounced good, The Prawn, crab and avocado salad as a main course had all of the right ingredients but was piled high in a heap on the plate- a... More

A meal for four, we all had 3 courses and agreed it is rare to really enjoy all three. Mussels superb, cod sublime! Good service. A tad pricey at £175 for what is essentially a pub,but would definitely recommend and return.
