The Ivy Winchester, located on the high street, is superbly situated in the centre of town within close proximity to famous landmarks such as Winchester Cathedral, The Great Hall, and the Winchester Military quarter. The restaurant is well-located for tourists and locals, with a keen eye for history and culture. Plus, it’s also a great option for pre- and post- theatre dining, as one of the oldest and most stunning performance centre, Theatre Royal, is nearby too.

The restaurant, in true Ivy style is splendidly decorated, the Winchester branch was designed in collaboration with Martin Brudnizki Design Studio. The interior is brilliantly playful with texture and colours, with a chic onyx bar, marble flooring, and leather booths. During the warmer months, punters can also sit outside on the lovely terrace and soak up the sun and a view with their meal.

The Ivy is always a great option for celebrating happy occasions, dining with friends, meeting with colleagues, and more, and the Winchester location is no different. The atmosphere at the Ivy is always buzzy and happy, and with great service, you can’t really go wrong at this classic British institution.

The menu offers up a hearty selection of British and international fare, with a distinctly gastropub influence from dishes such as the signature shepherd’s pie and the selection of burgers and steaks. The brasserie can also do more delicate flavours, from truffle aranchini to lobster linguine, and a roast butternut squash with grains.  For afters, cocktails and dessert are aplenty; the Ivy Royale is a classic choice while the apple tart fine is a delicious pudding option to round off a scrumptious meal.

The Ivy Winchester offers several menus depending on your dining occasion. In addition to the regular a la carte and set menus, the restaurant also does a wonderful weekend brunch and a charming afternoon tea.

Great for a special occasion.

Second visit to this great restaurant and it didn't disappoint. Had lunch this time and it offered very good value (we opted for the set lunch menu). There was a good choice of food and everything was delicious. We also added the fried zucchini from the a La carte menu - really recommend these, delicious. 

We will go back again.  Great place to celebrate a birthday or other special occasion, the staff really look after you. Allow lots of time for a visit, it's something to savour slowly.

Simply Perfect!

We went for a festive afternoon tea.  The service was excellent , food was amazing especially the chicken truffle brioche.  Cakes and deserts were exceptional.  If I had one criticism, it would be only slight, could do with fewer sweet things and more savoury bit this is only a very minor thing so still 5 stars all round.
