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

We visited on Sunday 4th Dec. On arrival we were told they had no reservation even though it was made over a month prior in writing and was confirmed so we were put on a small table in the bar, which was ok. For some reason there was obvious chaos and confusion both in the kitchen and bar staff. Service... More

Thank you for your review. We appreciate your very positive comment on the quality of the food. I remember talking to your friend Andy about his booking, and was bemused that we didn't have it one our online booking system - I can only surmise either my error in transcribing it, or that it may not have saved successfully. As... More

Having been familiar with this pub for over 30 years we took a chance for a family meal here not knowing the current owners. The evening turned out fairly memorable for both good and bad reasons. Surprisingly (having been here many times over the years) it was very quiet on a Saturday evening. It was also very cold with a... More

Thank you for your review Mark. It was a rather odd evening - and one that exceptionally generated 2 negative reviews in addition to your mixed review (see below). Our Saturday nights are hugely variable - from full to relatively quiet. I think I might be forgiven for appearing mildly eccentric when faced with explaining that an order for 'no... More

We stopped in at The Winterbourne Arms for dinner en route from London to Cardiff last Friday night. We really enjoyed our time at the pub, which was very traditional. There was only one lady serving, which meant she was a bit stretched to cover both the bar and the restaurant service, but she was extremely helpful nonetheless. A good... More
