The Old Vine’s Restaurant
The Old Vine’s reputation has been built on the quality of its food, and our kitchen won Hampshire Hospitality Awards for the past six years (most recently in 2013) for both this and its use of local produce – we are enthusiastic supporters of local food producers, and are members of Hampshire Fare, an umbrella organization dedicated to promoting quality local food in Winchester and further afield. A list of Hampshire Food Heroes supplying the Old Vine can be viewed on the right.
Our menu, which changes monthly, ranges from hearty pub food and tasty bistro classics to delicious fresh fish and seasonal specials showcasing the best produce from the south of England and elsewhere in the UK. Vegetarian options are always available.
Lunch includes light bites, soup and sandwiches made from freshly cut, locally baked bread – the best bread in Hampshire, in our opinion. Try our famous fish finger sandwich – the ultimate in comfort food – or perhaps an Old Vine steak and ale pie made with Ringwood ale.
Our restaurant can comfortably accommodate tables of up to ten guests as one party; for larger groups, the courtyard garden room is available for private use, and can seat up to 12 persons.
Breakfast is available only for hotel guests.
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 courtyard garden room, and outside spaces. Please note that, due to space restrictions, pushchairs cannot be accommodated indoors. A high chair is available for use in the courtyard 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.
Wheelchair access: a ramp is available to enable wheelchair access through the restaurant door. Please ask a member of staff for assistance. Please note that only the main restaurant and bar are accessible to wheelchairs, and that the hotel, the courtyard room and toilets can only be reached through a set of steps where a ramp is not feasible.
