“Ryan, Rocky and the team who make all the difference”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

What makes the winchester stand out from the rest is the whole ethos of the place, this is a bar/restaraunt that aims to provide evrything you would expect but then they go that much further, the food is well above the norm and whilst they do not pretend to be a great 3 michelin star establishment, what they have achieved is a fantastic 5 star family/couple/group environment that simply caters for everyone in a friendly no pressure manner complimented by reasonable prices, good food, good service and everyone is not only welcome they make you feel welcome and that is worth a lot. The Winchester bar is the only bar along the Fanabe lower strip that has a ramp out to allow access for wheelchairs, all the other bars have a 9 inch step to negotiate!!!! The Winchester has fully adapted disabled toilets, babychanging facilities, games for the kids, etc etc.
Rocky, Ricky and the whole team put a lot of planning into what they do and they take their business seriously, the result is a venue you will feel bound to try and then you will simply return and make it your local whilst you are on holiday because it makes you feel like just popping in again and again for good food good drinks fantastic location great staff and a wonderful experience.
The Winchester is an English Bar/restaurant owned and run by the English for the English and it does a damm good job of it.
Try it for Breakfast, lunch dinner a few beers or a cocktail as the sun sets and return home with one extra good memory.
Say Hi to them all from Andy & Izabela, we shall be back for a month in September, cant wait.

“Average very average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

Decided to go following previous reviews of trip advisor. Menu looked okay, food when it arrived was pretty basic. I say when it arrived as it took 45 minutes to get to us. Not the most pleasant looking place and for the same money you can get better elsewhere along front.

“Won't be back”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

We visited here due to the low price and the promise made by the guy outside of honest simple British food and that 'we aren't fancy and not posh'. He was right to be fair but in my opinion neither was it very good. I reckon we could have got better food from the freezer at the local supermarket. Also, not sure when lasagne became British food :) Cheap but better to spend more for quality. Friendly staff though.

Honest and well run place with charming staff . . . but the food is dreadful. Go for the drinks and views and sunset!
