I was impressed by the whole evening, from staff, prices, food and entertainment. We attended the Thursday night BBQ with friends. They had an amazing singer doing an acoustic session; Paddy James. It was a sunny evening so listened to him sat in the garden. The pub staff and customers were all having a great time. Can't wait for the... More

As a female traveller on my own, I stay here for business purposes about once every couple of months. The staff are just lovely (particularly Eve who always manages a smile and chat in the morning and who couldn't be more helpful), the food is delicious and the rooms are all of a high standard (even the single one).

This is a very nice inn, where we had an overnight stay. The accommodation is top class. The bar and restaurant prices are on the high side, but the service is very good and the inn is immaculate. Overall this is a pleasant place to stay.

Booked the Kings Head through the business on the basis of the address being main road, Winchester. However, it is actually in the small village of Hursley, about 10 mins from Winchester. A great find, and so nice to stay somewhere with character and soul. Good beers on tap, a great steak. Rooms really comfortable and well thought out, and... More

My husband and I have just had a two day "much needed" break and we couldn't have chosen a better place. From the moment we walked through the door we were met with smiling and helpful staff who couldn't do enough for us. The room (2) was lovely, bed really comfortable, a fabulous bathroom and all spotlessly clean. The food... More

Great location, lovely bar area and elegant dining room. The bar service was somewhere between bored and condescending (despite bar being almost empty), service in the dining room was good, friendly and informed, but the meal was variable and when the person from the bar started serving in the dining room... Well, see above! Brilliant starter, adequate main course, so... More

I stayed recently for one night and had a family dinner in the restaurant. Food was very well cooked and served even though we were late ordering - we were unlucky with a couple if the starters as they'd sold out before we ordered but that does illustrate good food, prepared daily and limited accordingly... Room was superb (Heathcote) and... More
