Another lovely meal tonight. The ambience is lovely there and the staff are attentive. We sat by the window so had a lovely view of the river passing under the bridge. We weren't mega hungary so ordered a sharer platters. - It was just scrumptious - and more than enough food for two. Our company had a bread meal ie... More

I went with my partner and four friends. Between us we had lamb roast, beef roast, wild boar and apple burger and steak and chips. All were top quality, wouldn't fault a thing. The roast dinners were large and my partner, who likes a roast, said the beef roast was the best roast he has ever had. I tried some... More

Had a Christmas meal for a large party on 12th December. The food was excellent and very generous portions, but my greatest praise is for the staff. They were friendly, efficient and couldn't have been more helpful. Well done Bishop on the Bridge!

I have been to this bar before and it is very popular. It is more of a restaurant and it is clear you need to book a table in advance. Even if you are not eating there are a lot of people anxious to get a table (as we were) to sit down just for a drink or a snack.... More

On our first visit to Winchester the venue was recommended by locals and became our local! Larger than some of the pubs we visited it was still always busy with great atmosphere but managed to find a seat every time. I loved the food choices. Middle of the road prices but tasty and filling and service great! I loved the... More

Visited many times along with a wheelchair user. While not easy to access the staff were always helpful to the extreme. Food very good and reasonably priced. Well worth a visit.

Thank you for your review... I'm glad the staff are helpful, I'm not sure if you know but we do have a ramp that can be put in place, to enable easy access, just give us a heads up next time you come, so we can get this ready for you. See you soon hopefully. More
