One happy customer comments, ‘First time at this restaurant and I was impressed. First, they know how to mix a drink. Next, the service was great - friendly and efficient.

Will definitely be back with hubby and friends.’ Mareen G. stated, " Need the perfect restaurant for your private party? Well you will be extremely pleased if you select Winchester & Rye. I highly recommend it. Dinner was hot, delicious, and plentiful- enough for everyone to back for seconds. Cheesecake was our dessert and Wow, it was amazing.' Moreover, the Winchester & Rye’s ‘to go’ service has risen in popularity by 25% – this is, in part, thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic during which the restaurant made their entire menu available for take-away.

Winchester & Rye treats its team like a family, providing them with a positive and friendly place to work. As such, it has cultivated a tight-knit group, with each member devoting themselves to the success of the business by prioritizing collaboration, client-centricity, and approachability. ‘The wait staff was also superb.
