“Evening Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

Took our son and his girlfriend for a Saturday treat, only just managed to get a table at 7pm and had to be out by 9pm as they had a prior booking. Food was expensive but excellent, son and i had the crab and sole starter and then rabbit for main, my wife opted for the Beef al la Anglaise which at £27 was on the expensive side but very very good. All of us had puddings from creme brulee to chocolate brownie, I had the macadamia and ginger cheesecake which was devine.

Definately worth a visit if you have £200 to spend

“What a rip off!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

The chalk board outside advertised afternoon tea for £2.50 and mentioned carrot cake & scones. When we sat down there was no menu and we asked for the aforementioned tea and cakes. When asked for the bill, we were surprised that the afternoon tea did not include the cakes ans so the half full pot of tea was a fiver PLUS £3.50 for the cake and another £3.50 for the dry scone (no jam). To be fair the cake was nice. Beware!!

“Nice !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013 via mobile

I ate here with a friend and had a very enjoyable evening , food was good and ample , choice of wines were good and excellent service , the restaurant was very empty so did not add anything to the feel of the place , great view of the cathedral to boot as we managed to sit at the window .... Nice experience and good food .....

“Good restaurant in Winchester”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

We ate at this French restaurant on a Saturday night. The food was good and looked attractive on the plate. There was sufficient choice on the menu for most people and a good veggie option. The lemon bread and butter pudding was particularly good. The waiters were attentive and service was good.
