The Wykeham Arms

75 Kingsgate Street Winchester SO23 9PE

A successful blend of atmospheric boozer and popular gastro-pub, the redbrick Wykeham Arms is an essential stop on any historic Winchester pub crawl, though you’ll need to get there early for a table in the bar (actually old school desks from nearby Winchester College). The restaurant, meandering through various rooms either side, serves regionally influenced dishes such as local asparagus in hollandaise sauce and grass-fed Hampshire beef. There’s a decent range of real ales and an extensive fine-wine list.
