Have grown up knowing this place. Very simply has always been the place to go for a decent meal, for a special occasion or just for a catch up with a friend. It is such a nice pub, and it will always feel special when you walk in. I'm probably going to be a little biased towards this place, so... More

This pub use to be our favorite in Winchester. However yesterday we planned to take our 8 month year old daughter and her grandparents to the wykeham arms for lunch after visiting the Christmas markets. As soon as we entered the bar man shouted over to us 'excuse me no children'. We have always checked whether dogs are allowed in... More

I will expose my bias straight away, I just LOVE the Wykeham Arms in Winchester. It has a wonderful atmosphere and feels atots best on a cold winters night when the log fire is burning brightly. There are a variety of 'small rooms' which make up the pub/restaurant where one can eat and the food is of a very good... More

Staff excellent particularly the waitress who served us lunch. Not like any other pub I have been to. The menu was good but would have liked to have seen more variety and,... More

A cold crisp night wandering around the Christmas market and what better way to end the night than to find a pub with character and good food. Unfortunately it was not to be found here. You cannot question the character of the pub, refreshing to see one that stamps its own personality into the building and one where I would... More

- and we four enjoyed being with nice posh customers and were happy to pay the £200 for the very good food and attentive, helpful service. We`ll go again when we next visit this fascinating city.

After a day playing tourists in Winchester we almost didn't go in as the restaurant looked a little too upmarket for our attire so decided to stop for a drink to assess the situation. It was buzzing in the bar and the staff were very welcoming and the lunch menu though understandably unavailable at 5pm looked interesting. The only downside... More

Lunch or dinner - always good. Atmosphere wonderful. Service friendly but always professional, and ones is surrounded by locals as well as travellers to this hostelry /restaurant/pub. Difficult to put the Wykeham into any particular box. You just need to go and savour it for yourself.

All three of our party enjoyed their chosen meal: steak, trout and good old fashioned fins and chips. Couldn't find fault... More
