Where to take your Dad in Winchester after the Bridal Boot Sale (it is Fathers Day after all!)


We're always surprised at the amount of Dad's we see coming along to the Hampshire Bridal Boot Sale - we just think it fab how many of them are so involved in the planning of their daughters wedding. Our next Hampshire Bridal Boot Sale is being held on Fathers Day. But we're open from 10am-1pm, which gives you plenty of time to take your Dad out for lunch afterwards (See what we did there?) Our very own Karen gives her top tips of the best places to go on her blog The Peony Tree every week, so we thought we'd get her to share some of her top tips on where in Winchester to take your Dad after you've been to see us.

Ginger Two for Tea is a lovely little Boutique café in the centre of Winchester. Pop in for a great lunchtime bite to eat - sandwiches, salads, a cheese and wine platter. The perfect place to update the Father of the Bride on how you'll be styling all of your Bridal Boot Sale purchases!

The Corner House (pictured above) is quite literally around the corner from Milner Hall, and one of my favourite places to have lunch. The décor itself provides serious wedding styling inspiration - expect to be wowed by the vintage suitcases, flowers is crystal vases, and mismatched furniture. The food is also amazing...think big traditional roasts and sticky toffee pudding for desert. Dad will be super impressed, trust me!

The Wykeham Arms is a Winchester local's favourite. If you've not discovered it yet, then you should really do so! Tucked away between the Cathedral and the College, this place is a little gem. Take a seat at School tables and chairs in the main bar area, and make sure you get your Dad a pint of ale in - he'll get a free tankard and bottle of beer when you dine on Fathers Day too! Brownie points all round!!

If you're really looking to impress Dad, then why not take him to the Michelin starred The Black Rat in Chesil Street. Serving Modern British food, this place is really special. We especially like the outdoor tables, which seat you in little huts (don't worry there is heating if the British weather takes hold!)
