The Old Vine, Winchester

The Old Vine Winchester Christmas Meal Set Menu Dessert

Hey everyone! Hope you're all well! On Thursday a group of us from work had our Christmas Meal at The Old Vine in Winchester and it was really lovely so I thought I would share some pictures :)

The Old Vine Winchester Christmas Meal Set Menu Dessert



I'm not going to lie.. my expectations were realllly low. I've heard that the food there is really good but when I looked at the options on the set menu there wasn't really anything that stood out to me. I thought all the options were a bit funny and they didn't have like.. Turkey with all the trimmings which I thought was a bit weird.. and there was a set price of £25 per person so I wasn't sure whether it would be worth it. Luckily I was pleasantly surprised!

When we arrived we were promptly taken to a separate room where we had our table for 14. It was such a lovely room and it was really nice that we were separate and I felt that we could enjoy it a bit more. There were also some really lovely decorations and the room looked so cute! Due there being so many of us we also received 2 complimentary bottles of Prosecco between us all. :)



For my starter I chose the smoked salmon and it came with a lovely mustard, honey and dill dip, salad and a selection of bread, it was really tasty and the portion was actually pretty big! A lot of people opted for the scotch egg which did look really good.. It was a perfectly runny egg surrounded in sausage meat and a nice salad.

For my meal I picked lamb shank in red wine sauce with mash potato, sweet potato and green beans. I really enjoyed my main and I think it was one of the better options. It was also huge so I couldn't finish it all, but it was really tasty! Those that had the crab main didn't really like it which is such a shame.



Finally, for dessert I picked an apple tart and I think it was my favourite part! It was warm and sweet and it was really lovely. There was ice cream on top which I wasn't too keen on so I took it off but the actual tart was really nice :)


After the meal we had a choice of different teas and coffee, so I picked a camomile tea and we all opened our secret santa presents. It was actually a really nice evening and I'm glad it went well and I liked the food! Have you had any Christmas meals yet? :)



PS. On Wednesday I did a Primark Haul if you wanted to have a watch :)

  24. I'm glad you were pleasantly surprised by the restaurant, it's always nice when that happens. I've only visited Winchester a handful of times and so don't know much about where to eat, though I'll keep this place in mind for future reference! :)
