This was the second time we stayed here and we enjoyed it as much as last time - great service, lovely rooms (the one we stayed in this time with the 4 poster bed was great), and excellent food. We will be coming to stay again some time!

Hotel in excellent location - easy walking distance of the cathedral and town centre. Food extremely tasty - would recommend booking in advance if you want a table. Full of character. My single room was quite small-probably not suitable for more than a couple of nights, and also up some fairly steep narrow stairs so could cause issues for the... More

I have been coming to the Wykeham for many years and I have always given it 5 stars and recommended to all of my friends. During my last stay, many of the things I liked about the Wykeham were still there, but it felt a bit too corporate for me. It has changed ownerships and management over the years. The... More

One of the best Sunday roasts we've had in a pub. Beef was great - loads of it cooked rare with massive home made Yorkshire, beautifully cooked vegetables and crunchy roast potatoes. The lamb and pork were just as good and the set 3 course lunch was terrific value at £25. We had a bottle of the house claret which... More

Had an unprecendented experience today when I walked into this pub and asked whether they could provide a high chair. He looked at me as if I spoke Martian. When I explained that I had an 8-month baby, he simply shrugged and said "we don't accept children here." Must have been part of the historical 17th Century tour that I... More

Dear 62swanseajack I'm sorry you felt this way when you came to the Wykeham arms. I can see that the attitude of my team member was a real issue, and all staff have now been re-briefed on how to speak to customers on this matter in future. Please accept my apologies. Best regards Jon Howard General Manager More

The Wykeham is a very charming hotel with a wealth of character. The food is top notch and our room was both nicely presented and very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful and its location couldn't be bettered as it's only a few minutes from the cathedral.

We spent one night at the Wykeham Arms while visiting Winchester. The pub was very buzzy in the main bar, the eating areas were off to one side and every pleasant. The decor is madly eclectic with many Searle illustrations and memorabilia of bygone ages and pictures of worthy historical characters. Booking in was completed easily with attentive staff who...

We had a very comfortable superior room in a building opposite the Wykeham Arms with views of a small garden and nearby rooftops. We dined twice and had excellent food on both occasions, This is a great location for the major sites in Winchester and the availability guest parking a real bonus..

Stayed 2 nights in the Superior double. Very impressed with the style, authenticity, and elegance of the room. Felt like we'd stepped back in time, especially with the four poster and double roll top bath. Bed very comfortable and slept beautifully. Food and service lovely. Pub itself has masses of character aand intrigue and a lovely atmosphere. Very quintessentially English.... More
