Wonderful meal in a beautiful setting

We had the very reasonably priced early dinner 3 course menu. Every course was delicious and the building is absolutely beautiful. Wish we lived nearer and could try out the Christmas menu!

A memorably meal with friends. My meal: confit duck leg, salad Lyonnaise, Poached Egg. Blackberry Eton Mess. Tasty and satisfying. Skin crispy. I've eaten confit duck a few times, and this was up with the best. The blackberry eton mess was rich and fruity. Eaten by the others: Smoked haddock kedgeree, toasted almonds, mango chutney. Potato, red onion & samphire... More

Another lovely meal at the Chesil Rectory. Went there on a rainy Monday night, but thankfully the place was quite full, so there was some atmosphere. Good service and delicious food. Recommended.

Dim lights, mutterings of diners, cozy atmosphere, exquisite food, brilliant service all under one of the oldest buildings in Winchester... I would recommend highly to friends and couples!

The chef at the Chesil Rectory has to be the best Winchester can offer. This week we had the lamb and it was as expected here, amazing and succulent. Our waitress was as usual well informed about the dishes and good knowledge of the wines.

Been here a few times! Food is always spectacular! Not always a wide variety but the quality and service makes up for it. Definitely worth the money :)

Visited with work colleagues. We enjoyed the wine selection and the dinner including vegetarian options. Particularly liked the selection of menu options that is regularly revised. The variety offered is very good. Would recommend the place for family or a business meal.

Loved this place! We were on the hunt for a restaurant with excellent food, service and ambiance for my 50th birthday. After searching London and being scared off by the crazy cost of food for a nice dinner we decided to venture to Winchester for the day. Thoroughly enjoyable day, Winchester is a foodie place. Loved the Rectory and all... More
