Lovely location

Very friendly staff, good varied menu & good food. Very reasonable priced. We used this place as a halfway meeting point between Southampton & Aylesbury to meet up with friends & weren't disappointed. Will certainly visit again.

We stopped in for Sunday lunch with the dogs and children and were very grateful to have booked, the place was bursting at the seams. But despite the fact they were clearly very busy indeed, the welcome was friendly and the service impeccable at all times. The childen both went for roast beef, which arrived beautifully pink and tender. The... More

i went here with 5 friends last week and arrived as the snow was being cleared in the car park. The snowy scene enhanced the setting. Once inside was met by the friendly host and staff- the setting was brilliant and wecoming. We had a great window table and had an excellent choice of food including game to choose from.... More

From the moment we walked in we knew it was good. Friendly smile & good ale, we'd stopped in for a bite to eat at lunchtime after a long meeting. We were shown to a lovely table & offered all the specials but chose a light lunch of baguettes - they were very generous portions & absolutely gorgeous, bacon &... More

The Winterbourne Arms is quite close to the M4/A34 junction, but you need to navigate a couple of miles of narrow country lanes to get to it. Well worth finding; it's an old building (I believe part was originally the village bakery), with a large carpark behind (up a rather steep slope). There's a well-stocked bar (good wine list, Ramsbury... More

We went as a party of 8 and from the greeting when we arrived to when we left, the whole team at the winterbourne arms couldn't have done more. The food and service was fantastic.

We popped in, on the off chance without booking on 22nd December. Heaving! Restaurant packed and bar tables all taken. The place was full of laughter and people obviously enjoying their Xmas parties. The land lady greeted us with a great big smile and we enjoyed excellent House wine ( I think it was Tierra Attica). The landlord generously offered... More

Have eaten numerous times in this very friendly pub and have never been disappointed. A real feature, apart from the great food, is the very personable well trained staff for whom nothing is too much trouble.

Being local and a beautiful day we cycled out for a couple of lunch time beers to one of our favourite pubs- that was the plan anyway...but the warm friendly humourous welcome, the general ambience ( it was very busy too) and the fantastic smells floating past us were just irresistible- of course the food was delicious and the service...
