A group of us had sunday lunch here. The staff were extremely helpful and welcoming, and the food was very tasty, with generous portions. Would definitely visit again. A hidden gem!

Not knowing the area we decided to look on here for some good recommendations, and The Winterbourne arms came with some good signs. However, despite being a Saturday evening the pub was relatively quiet, and after a while we could see why. The hosts were lovely and attentive, but didn't quite hit the mark across the board. - Menu online... More

Not sure what to make of this pub. It seems to be trying to present itself as a serious eatery with a selection of up-market dishes, but lacks the culinary savoir faire to pull it off, and - when we visited it for lunch - seemed to have as many dishes 'off' as on, which left us frustrated and made...

After hearing great reviews about the Winterbourne Arms from my aunt, uncle and grandmother, me and my grandmother decided to pop in to the pub. She has been there several times before and has had nothing but good things to say about the service and standard of food. Today however must have been an off day. We came in to... More

Had the most superb meal at the Winterbourne arms. With it being a typical cold, wet dark Sunday in January I was looking to take my family (of 5) out for lunch. From the moment we stepped into the pub we were treated with warmth and utter professionalism. The owner is charming, and quick to make you feel relaxed and... More

It's been a while since we've dined here and on arrival we were apprehensive as it was quiet. The service was friendly and welcoming, and the food was delicious. Two new chefs make this worth a try. The pub is in need of updating but don't let this put you off. We will definitely return and thoroughly recommend.

Went to the Winterbourne Arms today for lunch, not sure if its it a pub or a restaurant. Do we order at the bar or a fairly non existent table service. It was lots of questions! The food was nice, but sadly let down by poor service, even the chap that eventually delivered our coffee at the end (having had... More

Had a great lunch on our way from Bournemouth to Winchcombe. From reservations by phone to greeting when we came in we were treated like royalty. Matthew the chef aimed us in the right direction for food choice and gave us a complimentary Yorkshire pudding. We will definitely be back on our next run south.

Situated in a small Berkshire hamlet, this lovely old pub offers a very comprehensive Blackboard menu, besides a regularly changing a la carte menu. Friendly & attentive service- dog friendly.

The Winterbourne Arms changed hands a while back. Jan's changes are beginning to bear fruit. She is committed to local brewers and interesting ales, had the best pint in years this week. A new chef has breathed new life into the menu, game bourguignon and pigeon burger are both excellent. The pub is small and friendly, in a stunning village... More
