Our acclaimed chefs use only the finest, freshest ingredients and transform them into a range of delectable dishes. We serve only the best of Scottish beef, British lamb, pork, wild white fish, and specially sourced vegetables and dairy products in our restaurants. Brian selects suppliers with the highest standards, such as ScotBeef for quality beef and lamb and John Ross Jr for smoked fish.

Brian has a wealth of experience from working in hotels and restaurants across the world. Starting his career in the award-winning Baytree Restaurant in the five-star Falstaff Hotel in Johannesburg, Brian then came to England seeking success. It was not long before he was awarded a second AA Rosette for the Oak Room Restaurant at Tylney Hall. After his success at the Oak Room Restaurant Brian went on to achieve two AA Rosettes at Oliver's Bistro. Winning gold medals at the Wessex Salon Culinaire two years running, Brian's passion for food is transferred onto the plate in all areas of the hotel.

As well as catering for restaurant guests in the AA Rosette awarded Winchester Restaurant, Brian and his team are also dedicated to catering for weddings and banqueting in the hotel's function suites, which can cater for up to 350 guests at a wedding breakfast.

Couples can create their own three or four course menus from a large choice of dishes; there are also separate canapé, children's and evening reception menus available.

Macdonald Hotels & Resorts received a Good Egg Award in 2012 from Compassion in World Farming and the Best Breakfast Award at the Menu Innovation and Design Awards (MIDAS) 2011/12.
