It was like staying in the best boutique hotel. Clean, stylish and comfortable rooms with fine finishing touches to the decor. I loved the do not disturb piggy to be placed outside the room. Nice to have a well stocked honesty bar too. With good food and polite attentive staff. I will definitely be returning.

Me and my finance stayed here for one night just to get away. Hotel was lovely, staff were very friendly and the room was spacious and fresh. We had the room overlooking the old castle and was fantastic. Breakfast was nice with a good selection. Would definitely return!

This is my first Tripadvisor review so you know it must be amazing food for me to bother! I had the lamb rump for the fifth time since it is so freaking hard to find a decent one in this country! And the one they serve is easily one of the best. I am a person who has travelled the... More

The bed was extremely comfortable and large and we just felt immediately relaxed and comfortable. The staff were... More

We stayed at the Westgate for an overnight stop whilst we visited Winchester for a family event. The photos on the website made it very appealing when we were looking to find somewhere to stay and the reality is just so. We were greeted by very friendly staff who checked us into this very characterful pub. The staircase up to... More

When visiting Winchester we only stopped in to ask for directions and use the bathroom but the pub had a lovely atmosphere and we got chatting to a friendly barman, I think his name was Darrel. That brief encounter encouraged us to come back in the evening and we ended up having great Saturday night. With the same lad still... More

Look, this place had a lot of money spent on it. Staff are good and friendly and the building lovely but FFS the ales are dire. Today, I asked for a Double Drop. Tasted like vinegar. I asked for another pint to be pulled through. Even worse. I asked for another pint of something else........Red Cat. I know the owner... More

Good morning Thanks for your review and for bringing this problem to my attention. I am investigating exactly why the beers were in this condition and will have it rectified right away. I can assure you I take a lot of pride in my beers having won multiple awards over the years for the quality and service. Bad beer really... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At the top of the historic Winchester High Street and a mere stone's throw from the legendary King Arthurs Round Table sits the redeveloped, prestigious and good-looking Westgate Pub with Rooms. Here at The Westgate we have gone further than just giving it a lick of paint... A short trot from the bustling city centre we strive to give every guest that walks through our doors the warm feeling of a home away from home. With a good old fashioned helpful bartender attitude, a funky, modern yet British pub kitchen and a light and airy vibe that continues throughout the pub and rooms. We hope you like what we have done as much as we do. We have created a versatile encompassment, ideal for all sorts of adventures that start, or finish, in Winchester. A place for work, rest, fun or families. Team Westgate really thought about the important things in life. A quiet drink, a good old fashioned knees up, romantic dinners, festive feasts, business trips and quiet getaways. This is a very exciting time in this corner of beautiful Winchester. The buzz surrounding the building during the work has been infectious throughout the city and now that we are open, we hope you feel we got it just right. Team Westgate look forward to seeing you and even more to welcoming you back time and time again. ... more   less
