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.
