The third River Cottage Canteen to be completed by Mackenzie Wheeler in the clients chain of now four superb restaurants, River Cottage Winchester involved the conversion of an historic mill, situated in Abbey Park in the centre of Winchester.
The new restaurant accommodation provides around 200 covers across the restaurant, bar and cafe areas.
The Winchester canteen has been created within the 18th century Grade 2 listed Abbey Mill, bordering Abbey Park, Winchester.
The mill buildings comprise a collection brick built structures and, rather oddly, was faced with a fine classical portico in 1800 so that the building might present a more attractive façade to the new public park formed in the centre of the city at that time.
The brief required the delivery of at least 130 dining covers, including a private dining area for 20, a deli’ area for retail sales and a bar, both to support the restaurant and to trade in its own right. A further 50 covers were required outside to capitalise on the unique parkland setting of the venue.
The restaurant also offers a base for River Cottage’s environmental campaigns; offers cookery courses and provides a venue for meetings, presentations and events.
