I am glad i went on a Tuesday when it was half price because the meal wasn't worth the higher prices they ask for on a normal day. The starters were beautiful really nicely presented and really tasty and i couldnt fault them, then i had the lamb for my main and it was lovely apart from the potatoes which... More

Let us say at the outset that the food here was superb, and at half price for starters, and for main course, on a Tuesday, excellent value! It's lucky, very lucky, though, that this establishment, had the custom of my wife and I as, upon arrival, having apologised for our casual attire (we had been on our way to LHR... More

Had the set lunch and it was ok but the uniformity of the fish did not make me think it was very fresh but frozen fish cooked. One of the party ate a la carte which was only ok. However 5.95 for an albeit lovely sorbet was exorbitant!!

looking at some of the review here not sure if maybe someone here went to another place? I agree with with some comments, plenty of space, the owner looks after the guest more then making money, we arrived and it was full but was told to await at the bar and shortly a table would have been free(saturday night no...

I dined here a few weeks ago with friends. We dined on a Tuesday night when you get half price on starters and mains, which is great value! I had the king prawns to start, however these were very disappointing as the prawns were so small there was hardly any meat on them. I have had the fish cakes for... More

This was a last minute booking for a 50th birthday lunch party after the Greyhound in Tidmarsh canceled our booking 4 days before (their loss and our gain as we won't trusting them again!). The Winning Hand booked us in last minute and it turned out to be a great move. We have eaten their before as the Chef cooks... More

My partner and I booked a table for valentines. Upon entering the venue it was quiet and spacious. We were greeted and asked for our reservation. Once checked off we were shown to our table, which was placed in the middle of a small spacious room. There were about 10 other parties present, mostly couples with one larger group. I... More

Went there last night for a birthday meal, we had a table book for 17. I have to say that the service was excellent. We didn't have to wait for drinks or food, someone was always there to server us. I had the set menu which was great value for money, the pie was delicious. Everyone really enjoyed the food.... More
