Surrounded (if not directly overlooking) by 176 acres of Hampshire parkland, the cosy Winchester is Botley Park’s fine dining restaurant. Most evenings, its modern burgundy, cream and mahogany interior is comfortably filled with international golf and spa guests relaxing to a background of classical music. The a la carte menu promises seasonal Modern British and European dishes such as Seared diver scallops served on a herb spaghetti with sauce vierge whist for main course enjoy Seared filet of Scotch beef served with asparagus and a braised oxtail charlotte or grilled John Dory filet on a bed of spinach and brown shrimp butter and what could be more perfect than Vanilla panna cotta with warm strawberries and cracked black pepper to complete the perfect meal. Service is friendly and efficient.
The Winchester Restaurant has been awarded its first AA rosette.Address

Zen Contemporary Bar & Restaurant
This super-chic little restaurant in Southampton's High Street is a hip hang-out serving fresh and delicious Japanese cuisine. The gorgeous, chilled out dining room at Zen Contemporary Bar and Restaurant – with its wooden floors, red walls, designer wallpaper and chandeliers – feels like a home away from home. We love the selection of fresh sushi, sashimi and maki rolls; light and crispy vegetable tempura; salmon teriyaki; yakitori scallop skewers served with wasabi; and twice-cooked duck with five spice sauce. Zen also has a wonderful range of noodle and rice dishes. Lit with lamps and candles, the bar is perfect for pre/post dinner drinks and serves a fine variety of wines, Japanese beers and sakes.Address
