Lovely pub with lots of history and character. Perfect for a night's stay in Winchester.
Location is excellent- right next to the cathedral and easy walking distance of every where in the city centre.
Our room was very well-appointed and the bed was very comfortable.
The pub had a steady stream of customers all day and a great atmosphere with fires lit.
The food at dinner was excellent- not cheap - but all the ingredients of very high quality. Good range of wines available by the glass. Breakfast too was excellent- again high quality, tasty ingredients and piping hot.
Service throughout was great.
Highly recommended and we hope to stay again!

Room tip: Parking is limited so get there early.

Visited here on Sunday with a group of friends for an early New Years Eve celebration. ( we are a bunch of lightweights who can't last till midnight!)
We all had roasts except one who had the fish and chips. The lamb was melt in the mouth and I especially liked the truffle cauliflower cheese. A side of pigs in blankets and jugs of extra gravy topped it off nicely! The yorkies were huge and cooked perfectly. Although it's on the pricier side for a roast, it was well worth the money as the quality and quantity were superb.
Our waitress Lowri was very personable, polite and efficient, a great addition to your pub.
The only critique I would have is that we were sat near the door to the car park/toilets which was quite draughty at times, as it was a rather chilly day and sadly the fire in that area of the pub wasn't lit.
We would,however,not hesitate to go back and have already recommended it to other friends.
Keep up the excellent work and well done chef and the kitchen!

Room tip: There is no visitor car parking, it is only for residents staying there . Research car parks, especially if you have reduced mobility

We stopped by for a drink and ended up staying for lunch. Atmosphere was really cosy and friendly and everyone was very welcoming. We sat in the bar and had some drinks and then asked to see lunch menu. So many wonderful options and we decided on the charcuterie board, cheese and their delicious cheese truffle toast. Food was amazing. Presentation was excellent and service was fast and friendly.

Went for dinner with colleagues. Had a great time. Staff great. Cauliflower main was really awful. Not as described on the menu, lacking texture, sauce and seasoning. Really disappointing. Options given to resolve but I just felt embarrassed. Won’t go again.

What can I say, The Wykeham Arms is a magical place to spend some time during the build up to Christmas. We were fortunate enough to spend the night in the Hamilton suite which was absolutely wonderful. After a mooch around Winchester and the Christmas market, we had a delicious roast dinner, followed by a cheeseboard. The cooked breakfast was divine-those hash browns really are out of the world! Too good to share with my husband who is still holding a grudge! Special mention to Dylan, Luke and Lori for their attention to detail and Jon who looked after us. Thanks guys. This trip really was very special and we will be back!

Room tip: Book a table for dinner, it gets busy 👍
