Award Winning Restaurant in Winchester

Pre-concert dining

Just a two-minute stroll from Winchester cathedral we’re perfectly placed to offer you a delicious pre-concert supper.

On evenings with a concert starting at 1930 our kitchen will open at 1800.

Prefer to join us for a late supper? Food is served until 2130 on Fridays and Saturdays.

Christmas 2018

With its crackling log fire and oak beams the Old Vine is a wonderfully cosy spot to enjoy a splendid lunch or supper over the Christmas period.

This year the Christmas market in Winchester runs from 17 November to 21 December inclusive.


The Little Minster Room will be available for group bookings during the forthcoming Christmas period. This is a conservatory-style private dining area, fully heated, with lots of natural light. Images of the room can be viewed here

For groups of between 11 and 16 guests we will be offering a three-course set menu, with five choices per course, at £29 per head plus 10% service. A copy of the set menu can be viewed or downloaded using the blue link on the right. To make enquiries or to book please email – we will not accept reservations for this arrangement by telephone.

We do not require a deposit or credit card number to secure your reservation.


For groups of 10 or fewer guests we will be taking reservations in the restaurant, where the a la carte menu will apply. The a la carte menu for the Christmas period will be finalised around November. Pre-orders are not taken for this menu.

Champions Of Local Hampshire Produce

Our hard-working, creative kitchen team are at the heart of the Old Vine.
We’re enthusiastic supporters of local Hampshire food, and are members of Hampshire Fare, an umbrella organisation dedicated to promoting quality local food in Winchester and further afield.

Our Menu 

Our menu, which changes with the seasons, ranges from hearty pub food to tasty bistro classics and uses 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 our scrumptious sausage and mash with lashings of home-made gravy.

Parties & Private Dining 

Our restaurant can comfortably accommodate tables of up to ten guests as one party; for larger groups, the Little Minster room is available for private use, and can seat up to 15 persons.

Breakfast is available only for hotel guests.

Policy on allergens: management, kitchen and front-of-house teams are allergy aware. Whilst every effort is made, when requested, to serve dishes as allergen-free cross-contamination risks cannot be eliminated entirely and therefore our food may be unsuitable for those with severe allergies or intolerances.
Please ask to see our allergen-management documentation at the time of your visit. It is also advisable to warn us of any special dietary requirements ahead of your visit; that way we can serve you better.

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 is available 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.

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.
