Central watering hole with very good food in historical surroundings

We were meeting old friends so the venue was not as important as the conversation and the time taken for food to arrive was not something we noticed too much. Service was friendly and of a good standard which one expects. The food was very good, at prices which are higher than an average pub, but... read more

Wonderful hotel. Delightful rooms, very quiet and a good nights sleep. The pub is a real joy with a great atmosphere. The food is gorgeous with a good choice on the menu. Breakfast was also of the highest quality. The location is central and beautiful. However the best thing about the pub/ hotel is the staff. They are very friendly,... More

We dined at the pub for Sunday lunch as a group of friends based on its central location and most recent reviews. Booking was easy and efficient by phone. We all ordered variations of the roast dinner beef and lamb. The vegetables were all good and cooked just right - the roast was let down by the quality of the... More

This is a second visit in a couple of months. We are returning because of the good food and service we experienced back in late June. This time we were seated in a different part of the restaurant over the other side of the premises which was great because it gave us a different view of things. Service once again... More

We went for lunch on a weekday. The pub is situated in the centre of town and has a good reputation. We ordered sandwiches but the bread was stale and the cheese had been left out in the open so was slightly yellowed. We sent them back and then got fresh replacements. However we waited along with several other customers... More

I've been going to the Wykeham arms for around 10 years and now, I feel it isn't keeping up with the competition value-wise. My starter, a delicious but tiny poached egg with asparagus (4 weeny spears) was around £8 main was rib eye steak with chips (apparently twice-cooked but a few were undercooked somehow?!) for £24. Service was good, relaxed... More

Went for lunch on a Friday, food was good but service was very slow. I had to go and find someone to get coffees at the end of the meal although the staff were very polite. Food very good and nice selections of wines and spirits

Hmmmm! Where to start..took ages for our drinks order to be taken.... Took longer to order our food.... Took ages to get wine list and order.... Water ordered at the start turned up on 3rd request ...... Sharing Platters to start excellent. Steak, Pasta, burger, pork all fine, but wish I had read the reviews on the Confit Duck salad... More

About a month ago we had Sunday roast lunch there and because we enjoyed it so much we thought we'd return last week. The staff were still friendly and helpful, the beer was great but the food was very disappointing. My wife chose the roast lamb but it contained a lot of fat (yes I know lamb is fatty but... More

Good selection of hand-pulled beer in interesting surroundings. Tables are old school desks from Winchester College
