The Old Vine

The Old Vine is a beautifully restored Grade II listed 18th-century inn in the heart of historic Winchester – moments away from the serene beauty of the cathedral, and conveniently located in the city centre, with its first-rate shopping, restaurants, bars and cafes.

Our spacious, beautifully presented accommodation has picked up a number of accolades: we’re listed in the AA’s Highly Commended list of hotels that go the extra mile for their guests, and in 2016 we were awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence recognizing our dedication to great hospitality.

We offer a superior level of comfort in stylish yet warm and restful surroundings – our rooms are an elegant mix of antique and contemporary, where finely crafted Georgian, Arts and Crafts, Victorian and Art Deco furniture sits alongside the sumptuous fabrics and wallpapers of designers Osborne & Little, Zimmer + Rohde, Nina Campbell and Zoffany (which, incidentally, our rooms are named after).
We offer double and twin rooms of standard and superior categories, as well as a luxurious top-floor suite which commands a breathtaking view of Winchester Cathedral.

All rooms feature deep pocket-sprung mattresses; Egyptian cotton bed linen; flat-screen TV with digital services; complimentary Wi-Fi; beverage-making facilities, including a Nespresso coffee maker; mini-fridge with fresh milk and complimentary soft drinks; digital safe; hairdryer; and a spacious ensuite bathroom. White Company toiletries also included!

With 24-hour access guests are free to explore Winchester’s city centre; visit our cosy, oak-beamed bar; or book a table in our popular restaurant for lunch or supper in relaxed, friendly surroundings.

Come morning, freshly baked bread, free-range eggs, Hampshire sausage, juices, fresh fruit, tempting pastries and locally produced preserves are the ingredients for a wonderful breakfast, taken either in your room or in the restaurant – the perfect prelude to an exploration of the lively shops, fascinating historical buildings and tranquil open spaces of Winchester.

Private room and meeting facilities
The Little Minster Room, adjacent to the main bar, can seat up to 14 persons when a degree of privacy is required, from family celebrations and small-scale receptions to business meetings.This room is bright and airy, with plenty of natural light; centrally heated in winter and with folding French doors to open out onto the patio during the summer months. For business meetings we can organise Wi-Fi access, flip charts, light lunches and refreshments – from a couple of hours to a full day’s use. And for social functions we can design a set menu to suit your budget and any dietary requirements.
