Black Rat

88 Chesil Street, Winchester, Hampshire, SO23 0HX
What was a pub, dating back to the 1700's, is now a good neighbourhood restaurant, offering a seasonal menu offering bold flavours and adventurous dining.

An early autumn snapshot brought 'Braised Oxtail Ravioli with Foraged Mushrooms & Beef Broth'; 'Purple-Sprouting Broccoli with Poached Quails Eggs, Cantabrian Anchovy, Almonds & Fried Breadcrumbs'; 'Huntsman Farm Middle White Brawn with Chicory, Parsley & Mustard' and 'Grilled Portland Red Mullet with Pepperonata, Kalamata Olives & Capers' among the starters.

'Char-Grilled Rabbit with Cauliflower Cheese Croquette, Parsley Purée & Young Carrots'; 'Daube of Longhorn Beef with Pork Belly, Snails, Parsnips & Cavolo Nero'; 'Roast Line-Caught Sea Bass with Confit Chicken Wings, Leeks, Ratte, Trompettes & Verjus' and 'Chicory Tart Tatin with Chestnuts, Lentils & Creamed Roquefort' listed among the mains.

Depending on the season, good puds might include 'Valrhona Chocolate Fondant with Parsnip Ice Cream & Peanut Brittle'; 'Apple Tart Fine with Dulche de Leche & Crab Apple Ice Cream' and 'Milk Pannacotta with Roast Quince & Coffee Essence'.

They have a comfortable bar upstairs, where you can enjoy a pre-prandial drink.
