The prestigious Westgate Pub with Rooms sits in a commanding position at the top of historic Winchester High Street, in the heart of the city and a short stroll from the fortified medieval gateway after which it was named.
The ‘real’ Westgate served as a debtors’ prison for 150 years – you can even still read some of the prisoners graffiti – but guests at The Westgate Pub with Rooms are assured of a warm welcome and all the comforts of home.
Recently the subject of an extensive renovation, the Westgate offers the perfect destination for a quiet drink, business lunch, romantic dinner for two, a good old fashioned knees up or a chilled weekend away. Most of the light, airy and elegant bedrooms offer wonderful views of this beautiful city and, from their bartenders to their kitchen and waiting staff, The Westgate’s friendly team is there to attend your every need.
The pub downstairs comes with a lovely atmosphere providing a delicious wine list, craft ales and ciders, an extensive spirits collection including over 25 whisky’s and bourbons, a dozen gins and a collection of home-made infusions. There is lots to keep yourself entertained with and array of board games, nostalgic music always playing and a kitchen serving up good country yet quirky British cuisine along with the very best Sunday roasts. Dogs are always welcome in the bar and there are even water bowls and a jar of treats so they don’t feel left out.
