8 Great Minster Street, Winchester, SO23 9HA

The Old Vine is a stunning Grade II listed hotel, bar and restaurant set in the beautiful city of Winchester. This 18th-century inn, situated opposite the cathedral, is steeped in history, just minutes from Jane Austen’s house, Winchester College and the Great Hall. The Old Vine is also brimming with awards – including winning bronze at the Beautiful South Awards for Excellence 2019 – and should be top of everyone’s foodie hit-list when visiting the area.

The varied menu showcases seasonal and local Hampshire produce. Starters include New Forest wild mushrooms with garlic and thyme; venison terrine with red onion relish and toast and butter, and smoked haddock Scotch egg accompanied by curried mayonnaise dip. Main courses feature a range of tempting options including meat-free dishes and daily specials, including fresh fish. The Old Vine cottage pie comes highly recommended, as does the delicious roasted guinea fowl wrapped in prosciutto with leek and pea risotto. The Old Vine is featured in the Good Beer Guide 2020, so unsurprisingly the bar is well stocked with local ale and beer.

With a suntrap patio and a crackling log fire, there’s always a reason to visit this award-winning pub, come rain or shine (dogs are welcome too). Looking for accommodation? The AA gave The Old Vine a Four Star Gold rating.
