We decided to get married and organised the wedding and reception for 40 guests within 2 weeks of the ceremony. The entire team at The Winterbourne Arms were so helpful, accomodating and made you feel as if nothing was too much trouble. Andy the Chef created magic in his kitchen and the Managers David and Michelle could not have done any more. The other Michelle made service on the day seem like it was being done by smoke and mirrors, it was fast courteous and discreet. We were also looked after on the day by Frank the owner. We and our guests can not praise this venue highly enough. Our guests said it was the best weedding they had ever been to. It was relaxed and friendly almost like being at home.

We wanted a nice pub for a Sunday lunch where we could get a room to ourselves for 20+ family and friends to celebrate my daughter's 18th birthday, and we needed somewhere near the M4/A34 junction to fit with where everybody lives. The food was very good and the service was really friendly and helpful. The staff were very helpful beforehand with arranging it. We were really pleased with it.

Following a wonderful lunch at the Winterbourne Arms to 'spy' out the place for a family reunion, we asked them to put together a menu for what eventually turned out to be 17 family members from far & wide. In the months prior to our visit, they were very patience & friendly with the changes we required. On the day, everything went off extremely well - we were served quickly with our delicious food, & the staff couldn't have been more helpful & friendly.

The Xmas decor was exceptional. Santa was climbing a tree beside the door and there were Xmas cards to the owners everywhere which tells you how popular the place is. Very charming and bigger than it looks from outside. Fires burning and lovely lighting make it feel very inviting. They have a pie special everyday and really good fish and chips. Plenty of home cooking on the menu and desserts are hard to pass up. Crumbles and STP ( sticky coffee pudding) with custard and ice cream if you want. Heartwarmingly great!

We arrived after 2.00 on a very wet lunchtime to a warm and friendly greeting. We only wanted a small meal and were invited to have only starters from as tempting menu as well as from the light bites menu - a very good idea! The black pudding, bacon and poached egg starter was good to look at but even better to eat and my wife's goat cheese and onion puff was praised; both were from the starter menu.
Looking at the other diners' meals, we wished we had been more hungry!
the price was reasonable and the service outstanding.
We shall return!
