Tasting menu
Private dining
Wines by the glass

A beautiful half-timbered building dating from 1450, The Chesil Rectory is the oldest house in Winchester. Enter through a low door to be greeted by a brilliantly preserved interior with low beams, charming inglenook fireplaces and exposed brickwork, updated with lime green banquettes and stylish chairs. The kitchen puts a gently modernised spin on classic French dishes.
