Tom’s Deli – breakfast and the best sausages!

Tom’s Deli is on George Street, but you may not know that due to it’s location. Set back from the main road, well the one way system, it is tucked in a corner behind Rawberry.  We’ve walked past so many times, but just have never stopped to pop in. Perhaps because we have never been…

Little Kitchen Bistro at Winchester Golf Academy – fondue

In the two years we’ve been living in Winchester, we’ve driven past the sign for Winchester Golf Academy a number of times, but not actually driven in.  And not suprising really, as it is a little off the beaten track.  But after our visit on Friday I would recommend it as a great place to…

The Green Man – cocktails

We are fortunate to have at either end of our road two excellent pubs.  Each way we walk, we walk past one, and so it was Saturday evening, before heading on to dinner elsewhere, that we stopped off for a couple of cocktails at The Green Man on Southgate Street.  Having previously used the pub…

Forte Kitchen – breakfast – French toast please

When I woke up this morning, I had French toast on my mind.  Not eggy bread but proper French toast, with crispy bacon and a little pot of maple syrup on the side.  And with that we set out in search of a weekend breakfast. We debated a little about where we should find this….

Overdraft: craft beer with mac and cheese

Yesterday after running some errands in town I fancied a half.  Luckily there was a friend who was also free that afternoon who also fancied a half.  Luckily for Overdraft, that half turned into four (maybe five) halves and a snack. Overdraft arrived on Jewry Street a little while ago.  At first I was saddened…

Rawberry – vegetarian cafe

For those of you looking for a top notch vegetarian cafe in WInchester you can’t go wrong with Rawberry on George Street which is on the edge of Parchment Street and round the corner from my favourite charity shop (the Oxfam book shop).  While other places in Winchester offer standard vegetarian fare – e.g. vegetarian…

Coffee Lab – Coffee and cinammon buns

Like Agent Cooper I’m always appreciative of a damn fine coffee when I find one. This morning, I had a later start than usual and my train was delayed (as per usual) so I had time to walk through town and stop off at Coffee Lab. Coffee Lab at one point appeared to be taking…

Greens Bar and Kitchen – Sunday brunch

Today we were with friends and we wanted somewhere were we could sit outside in the sunshine for brunch. Service was speedy and efficient and we were quickly brough coffees and then bloody marys. It was a pretty good bloody mary – nicely spiced, though perhaps a bit too much ice. I like my tomato…

The Cheese Stall – Winchester market

My God do I love cheese. I cannot emphasise this enough. If I’m honest the day I got married was not as happy as the day I spent in Neal’s Yard sampling and choosing the cheeses for the wedding reception. Alone. Without my betrothed… bliss. But since moving to Winchester, the lack of a permenant…

Brasserie Blanc…breakfast

Saturday morning breakfasts matter.  Both of us have long commutes which mean that most mornings breakfast is a coffee and if we’ve been organised a banana on the 6.18 from the station.  This means that when we do have the time to go out and have a breakfast, we want a proper breakfast. Though we’ve…
