A gorgeous riverside location, The Winery is a stunning bar and restaurant steeped in history which has been carefully renovated to the highest standard whilst embracing every aspect of its past. The Winery is set within the Abbey and was first established in 650AD for religious uses. Since then it has a colourful past as a religious college, parish use and home to ‘The Master of the Infirmary’. From 1910 the building was taken over by the Burton Club who transformed it into a public house ‘The Abbey Inn’, eventually developing into the wonderful bar and restaurant it is today.
A truly exquisite venue, The Winery has stayed true to its history with exposed stone walls and original ceiling beams. The furniture is cosy, contemporary and subtle in design as not to overwhelm the charming character of the building itself. Beautiful tiled floors, a large candlelit chandelier and striking carved wooden doors are just a few of the features on show at The Winery. With its own attractive terrace set within the rolling gardens and grounds of the Abbey, al fresco dining at The Winery would be a fantastic choice for pleasant summer days.
The Winery of course offers an extensive choice of exquisite wines, each one hand-picked and sourced from a range of countries, chosen with the help of award-wining wine writer Simon Woods.
