The Old Vine’s Bar + Terrace
Cosy CAMRA Pub in Winchester
Our historic city centre bar retains all the charming period features of an 18th-century building, with contemporary style courtesy of local interior design company, Design House.
Relax over a glass of fine wine or a refreshing pint of real ale; Alfred Brewery’s Saxon Bronze (brewed right here in Winchester) is always on hand pump, with three guest ales on rotation.
Real ale buffs might like to know that the quality of our beer is guaranteed by Cask Marque. Also, we’re proud members of CAMRA’s LocAle scheme, which recognises our support of local brewers.
The Good Beer Guide 2017
The Good Beer Guide 2017 is out now, and we’re in it!
Local CAMRA members have selected the Old Vine for inclusion based on the consistent quality and variety of our real ale selection. Congratulations to Paul and the cellar team who keep our beer in tip-top condition. Cheers!
Feeling peckish? How about some mixed nuts, olives, crisps, a pulled pork sausage roll or maybe something from the bar menu?
Or perhaps a scrumptious Hampshire afternoon tea of fluffy scones, strawberry jam and clotted cream, served in the bar every day during Summer from 3pm until 6pm?
100% Smoke Free Inside & Out
We were the first pub in Winchester to phase out smoking (in March 2005), and now we’re delighted to offer our non-smoking customers an outdoor space that’s 100% smoke-free.
In summer, our pretty, flower-filled patio is available for al fresco food and drink, and should the British weather do its worst, there is a bright and airy conservatory area, also known as the Little Minster Room.
There’s also a lovely café-style seating area at the front of the Old Vine – please note that, like the rest of the Old Vine, this is 100% non-smoking.
Policy on children: kids over six are welcome in the restaurant at any time, and in the bar at lunchtimes and during the day. Children under six have use of the Little Minster Room, and outside spaces. Please note that, due to space restrictions, pushchairs cannot be accommodated indoors. A high chair can be supplied for use in the Little Minster Room.
Policy on pets: pets are welcome in the bar and on the outside areas, but are not permitted in the restaurant or hotel rooms.
