Description: A destination for grown-ups who haven't outgrown going out. Our shabby chic interior creates a relaxed, informal environment for a proper cup of coffee, a thirst quenching selection of teas, a globe-trotting lager selection, a choice of fine local ales, very quaffable wines, and not forgetting a very varied Hampshire sourced menu. Oh! And cake, how could we forget the cake? Open for breakfast until late every day, The Corner House is definitely somewhere you can talk, relax with friends, or even do some work (if you must!), whilst listening to good music, and having some scrumptious food and drink. We fulfill the need to provide a space with internet access for small informal meetings. The Corner House serves breakfast, brunches, lunches and yummy cakes in the afternoon. On Tuesday and Wednesday evenings we offer our supper menu for the post-work chill out. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights the two or three course fixed price dinner menu is hugely popular and booking is recommended. Alas, we are closed Sunday evenings and Mondays to rest our weary feet, but we welcome you any other day or evening of the week. The Corner House is most definitely designed as a retreat for grown ups, so please note that we don't offer high chairs or baby changing facilities. If you would like to join us with a "buggy" please book in advance to give you a suitable parking space. We are a bijoux little venue and we don't always have the room. Feeling curious? We look forward to welcoming you at The Corner House. If you know you are coming in to see us, please book to avoid disappointment, and that includes booking for breakfast too!

“A belting little restaurant”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

This was our second visit to this restaurant for dinner. It offers a fixed price menu with a fairly small choice, but the food is excellent. Wines are reasonable and the service first class. I think the ambiance and layout make this a very special restaurant. Will definitely return many times in the future, its a class act.

“A nice home cooked breakfast”
Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

Great brunch with friends over the Easter weekend.

The breakfast menu was the only option at 11, which was slightly limiting as no lunch option was available.

The food was nice, although we did feel as though we needed to order more as we were left a bit unfulfilled. Plenty of coffee to keep us going, and the coffee is quite nice.

It would be nice if the bread served was more exotic that standard loaf. Whilst it is a very home cooked feel, there are a few things that could lift the experience and make it more memorable.

Just remember the croissants are cooked to order and can take 15-20 minutes to deliver. Very tasty when the do arrive though.

“Excellent for party dinners!”
Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

I was here recently with friends for a combined birthday bash and the food was lovely. The salmon for starters, the lamb for main course and the puddings were all excellent! The bread is very nice and served with olive oil too!

A nice rustic feel to the place overall and very homely and welcoming.

Overall excellent!

“Poor Value Lunch”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

My wife met booked a table and met a friend for lunch - £9.50 each for a small piece of quiche and a pile of salad leaves is far too expensive - particularly at lunch time when most establishments offer special deals.

“Disappointed - no high chairs?”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

I find it very interesting that a place in the heart of Winchester cannot provide a high chair for families with young children! It does mention this on their website but I noticed far too late and I was certainly not informed when booking though I believed I had clearly mentioned it!! Customer service was also less than impressive!! There are some lovely restaurants, pubs and cafés in Winchester that serve wonderful food! Such a pity as it looks so lovely! Doubt I would return!
