The Garden Restaurant at The Winchester Royal Hotel has been voted as the third best restaurant in Hampshire by users of Michelin’s Bookatable.

The online restaurant booking service analysed over 150,000 verified diner reviews and ratings on, taking several factors into consideration including number of reviews submitted, star ratings and review content to determine the winners of the Bookatable Diner Awards 2018.

Not only receiving the bronze award for restaurants in the county of Hampshire, the Garden Restaurant is the highest rated, and one of only two restaurants in the city of Winchester.

Louis Rigney, General Manager of the Winchester Royal Hotel said: “To be voted as the third best restaurant in Hampshire is an incredible achievement. Likewise, the top 10 shows us to be the best rated restaurant in Winchester, which is fantastic.

“We have put considerable time and effort into improving the Garden Restaurant over the last 12 months, so this third-place award is very satisfying.

“There are many factors involved with having a successful restaurant. The quality of the food and a good menu are obvious, but ensuring great service in key, so it’s recognition for the hard work that’s put in on both sides of the kitchen.”

Don’t just take other people’s views though. With a new menu now available, there’s never been a better time to dine at The Garden Restaurant at The Winchester Royal Hotel. For more information, or to make a booking, click here.
