Even though the pub was crowded - the rugby was on! - our room was SO quiet. Really good night's sleep on comfy bed. Room and pub tastefully decorated with lots of history in the pub. Staff were all approachable and kind. Breakfast was top notch. Thank you for a restfull night after driving through the rain from Devon. Easy... More

This turned out to be what you'd expect from a room over a pub. Facilities slightly run down. Shower head broken. Beds extremely hard and uncomfortable. No easy access to walk from the train station and the location is not central to the high street.

We drove down to Winchester to see the Cathedral and the Hospital of St Cross. The pub is about a 10 minute walk from the Town Centre and the memorabilia in the public area is very informative - find out how the diver William Walker saved Winchester Cathedral!. The bedroom was very well appointed and comfortable. We would really recommend... More

The accommodation is in rooms above the pub, however we found them to be quiet with no noise travelling up, we stayed on Wednesday night when a big football game was in the tv's in the pub. The rooms themselves were well equipment and nicely decorated. The evening food and breakfast were both excellent. Would happily return.

Went into my local last night for a very quick one where I go with my family for a meal most weeks and regularly sit with my kids in the Public Bar and enjoy our grub. Rude welcome last night and told kids not allowed!! There was nowhere else to sit as restaurant area was closed off! There were 6... More

I have been running The King Alfred for 20 years and in all that time The Public Bar has always been a child free area. We welcome children in every other area of the pub which is quite large.The small area of the public bar s one place I wish to keep for adults without the concern of children. This... More

My friend and I booked a twin room here for one night last weekend, for £115 inc breakfast. We'd picked Winchester as a place to meet up so travelled separately and both got given car parking permits on arrival at the pub, as there is no car park. The pub itself is warm and welcoming, especially with the current Christmas... More

We booked to come here for our work Christmas party and it was brilliant. We did a little bit of messing around with numbers right up until the day we got there, and even with that, the management there were so understanding. In the end we had 24 of us for a three course meal, and it was delicious. Great... More

Lovely, clean, spacious room. Friendly, efficient staff. Great atmosphere,Perfect location. Easy stroll from the station. Near to the theatre. We had lunch at the nearby Raymond Blanc before doing all the sightseeing - again! Enjoyed a brilliant evening meal at the King Alfred (and a lovely glass of Malbec.) Already looking forward to next time.

We stayed at The King Alfred for 2 nights and felt we would avoid dining here as there had been some poor reviews. We decided it was just easier to eat here on our first night ... we were not disappointed!! We ate in the restaurant both nights - on both occasions the food was good and the staff were... More
