Our motel had recommended this spot for dinner and we enjoyed our meal very much. We hadn't been in Winchester in a few years and were surprised at the number of new dining spots that have opened up downtown, especially along the pedestrian mall. But we prefer older, more established places when we travel.
Although it looks quite ancient from the outside, this is not really an atmospheric "Olde Inne" inside, just your regular comfie neighbourhood pub/restaurant feel. There are two distinct sections to the building, one more of a sports bar, the other more for family dining.
Much care had gone into the food here. The house salads, for example, were outstanding, with a wide variety of ingredients. My excellent, perfectly-cooked ribeye came with a smothering of braised onions and mushrooms--real mushrooms, not those nasty little things out of a tin.
Food and booze prices seemed reasonable to us, certainly less than those posted on some of the swankier places that have opened up over on the mall.
Service was also a notch above, special kudos to "Jessie" who went beyond and above to make our visit enjoyable. We only wish we could visit more often.
