First impressions weren't great - only expensive Bombay Sapphire and Fever Tree, no Gordons & Schweppes sold by this chain! Four of us booked for a pre-concert supper. We ordered at 6pm and received our main (only) courses at 6.30, and this was with an almost empty restaurant and a limited menu. I can see why others have complained of... More

Went in for lunch with my husband Monday lunchtime. We thought the inside was lovely. The staff were friendly, but we were not asked for our food order for ages, even though they knew we were eating and had given us menus, and the place was not busy. I made a bad choice from the menu, due to it not... More

Disappointing . We went here as a group of 13 to have breakfast after a celebration the day before. The service was poor and slow although there were only 4 other diners .We waited at least 15 to 20 minutes for tea, and coffee which came in small after dinner sizes cups and was warm not hot. They had run... More

My friend and I walked through the Winchester city centre looking for a place to have dinner, and we couldn't have gotten luckier when we chose No 5 Bridge Street. What a delight! Apparently the restaurant has been newly redone, and the interior is very cozy and inviting. My friend and I split some wonderful fishcakes for an appetizer, then... More

We went to No 5 Bridge Street for a Sunday dinner and were very disappointed with the experience. We were told that the beef had run out and offered lamb instead (fair enough) but weren't thrilled when we were charged £3 per head more for this, despite it not being specified on the menu, or, for that matter, mentioned by...

Went there for drinks. Barman knew his cocktails and made the experience very enjoyable. We only had bar snacks but the menu looked good and there were plenty of people looking like they were enjoying their meals. I've gone back several times and it's always the same service

Great pub in the centre of town with a great selection of drinks, good fun and friendly staff. Also great to stop for lunch when shopping in Winchester.

This is a great venue that I picked from other Trip Advisor reviews. But I didn't enjoy my main course (plaice fillet) and my pudding (sticky toffee) was dry. The restaurant didn't charge me. The menu is different (in a good way) and I'd go back again and have a great meal I'm sure. Really lively Saturday night venue.

My crab cocktail starter was tasty but sparse, so was looking forward to my main of a Rump Steak. Unfortunately it turned out to be very average. Was too thin to achieve a rare to medium and taste was unremarkable. The best bit was the chips. Wine was bland and the bottle of unoaked Chardonnay we had at The Bishop... More
