What little was left on the menu for a Saturday evening was at best disappointing. A lovely old place, full of atmosphere but badly let down by the cuisine and with woefully inadequate justification when queried. Sadly upper range prices for low to barely middle range food.

We stayed for 3 nights for a graduation. Very friendly and helpful staff, all of them! Good rooms, nespresso, fresh milk. Great breakfasts with a wide choice. Central location and free onsite parking. Super helpful as our group size changed a couple of times allowing us to change rooms to fit in additions.

Just returned home after staying 2 nights at the Wykeham Arms. Having read some of the reviews I really do have to wonder what some people expect, especially given the last few months! People just need a little patience and understanding whilst places find their feet again. We stayed in a superior room in the building over the road and had a lovely stay. The room was clean, and I loved the decor, very on trend! The room included a Nespresso machine which was a nice touch. Toiletries such as hand wash, body wash, shampoo and conditioner were provided, as were ironing facilities and a hairdryer. The room was very hot (even with a Dyson fan), but we were on the top floor in a heatwave in a very old building so there’s no much anyone can do about that! The building itself is beautiful with so much character, but probably isn’t suitable for anyone with mobility limitations as the stair case is very narrow and very very steep! Breakfast was delicious! A good variety, all cooked to order to a very high standard, and caters for veggies and vegans also. We had dinner at the pub one night, the food was amazing! The service was a little slow, however I do appreciate the difficulties the hospitality sector is facing at the moment with staffing etc. so I wouldn’t expect this to be a true reflection of the usual service offered. The location of the pub is ideal. Right behind the Cathedral in the historic quarter, such a beautiful part of the city. It’s our first time visiting Winchester but I know if we were to come back we’d definitely look to stay here again!

Beautiful stay at the Wykham Arms. Had a lovely quirky room overlooking a peaceful courtyard. Room was a bit hot but there was a fan. Huge comfy bed. Staff are great, friendly and chatty. We had a roast and while it wasn’t the best we’d had (cauliflower cheese and roasties were quite hard) the meat was excellent with lots of gravy, and the sticky toffee pudding was seriously good. Breakfast the next morning was very nice with good choices and high quality ingredients. We’ll definitely be back for a stay at here when we’re next in Winchester.

Invited my niece and her fiancee to dinner as it was always a great restaurant but alas no more. Service was ok but the little choice of meals was poor and the quality of the food served to us was awful. Such a huge disappointment and what was known as a great gastro pub has been serious damaged It'll be a long long time before we come back, if ever

I'm sorry you feel that way. We are doing our best in the face of some very serious challenges with staff and supply as per the media is reporting. How disappointing that in an uncertain and very difficult to manage world, some people cannot have a little more patience and understanding but to render us permanently damaged. This is not the case I might add. Regards Jon Howard General manager
