For an enjoyable summer Sunday evening, have a pre-dinner drink at the Old Vine next door, then move on to Bistro La Place. Well located just off the main street, and opposite the Cathedral. Good French flavoured food.

Overlooking Winchester cathedral Froggies as it is affectionately known has a prime location in Winchester. We stopped by for snacks and drinks late one evening and sat outside. Snacks were great, it is well worth visiting.

We've been here twice and despite the promising location and aesthetics this restaurant doesn't quite deliver.

As soon as you sit down, the feeling is special. La Place has a genuine character of quality in everything they do. The welcome, the decor, the menu, the balanced service. But it's when the food arrives in front of you -- that's when you're...More
