  • "Felt the Inn was overwhelmed.Not enough service people to accommodate the number of people.We waited almost an hour for lunch and then was not prepared as described.I realize that the Inn is under new mgmt.and I am confident that overall operations will improve."

  • "Our group of 6 had a fun dinner in the Carriage House and then moved into the bar area after dinner. The vibe was very fun & positive, with lots of different ages there. Favorites at our table were the artichoke & spinach dip, truffle fries, scallop special, and clam chowder. We mainly did appetizers and were so glad that there were new ones to select on the menu. The Winsor House is BACK!"

  • "My new wife and I live about 15 mins away and were looking for a new place to have dinner. After a long work week for the both of us, we were looking for a place that was quiet, with a classy crowd.. Check mate! When we arrived, the parking lot was packed, I thought we had made a mistake... The bar was pretty full, but an older crowd of singles... There were several tables of people eating as well. We got a drink and went to our table... There were several other small parties, but plenty of wait staff... Food and service was excellent. Highly recommended!"

  • "The chef comes to your table and makes sure he is preparing just what you like. Beautifully appointed, Frette Napkins, table cleared completely after each course. Waitstaff attentive to your needs. Listen to your food allergies and your specific needs. Cannot say enough about this little hem!"

  • "for the most part the food was excellent, clam chowder was AWFUL but portions are very small and prices are high for what you are getting!! We had a reservation at 5:45, seated immediately and were not served our meals untill 7pm!! The staff was pleasant but, didn't really care that we were there for 2hrs with 2 small children. this was my second time at Winsor house and I probably won't go back for dinner again."

  • "The welcome is immediate as you walk through the door. The ambiance is lovely with a delightful bar, carriage house or more formal dining in the main part of this meticulously renovated house. The attention to detail is amazing beautifully appointed tables, Frette napkins. The food is delicious, beautiful presentations, exciting flavors and wonderful chefs and attentive wait staff. A true find!"

  • "The space is beautiful and the food and service are very good. That said, once the place started filing with loud people, it was awful. I'm not sure if there is anything they can do to help, but the acoustics are not ideal for a relaxing fine dining experience."

  • "The Winsor House, under new management, is definitely back to where it was many, many years ago. It had it's ups and downs over the first few months, but now has great food and a great staff."

  • "We had a fabulous meal, as usual. I tore myself away from my favorite, the wild mushroom risotto, to try the cod and it was phenomenal. It has become my new favorite. We love the Winsor House for its warm welcoming atmosphere, the friends we always see there, and of course the wonderful food and drink. My husband and I consider the Winsor House to be our home away from home."

  • "We met friends from the Cape for an early Friday night dinner. The service was friendly, but a little haphazard (no coat room obvious, late with menus, had to ask for water refills), but the food was outstanding. Perfectly cooked salmon, crispy cod, beef tartare delicious with salty croutons, homemade tagliatelle -- multo buono!! Sticky Toffee Pudding was the best we've ever had. The bar was jumping, but the dining room was very quiet -- fine for our group."

  • "Reservation for six this past Saturday. Prior visits have been to the pub area which is busy and fun. The dining room is more sedate and was frankly not busy. Diverse ordering from burgers to cod to the sirloin. The food was all well prepared and very good The steak was quite good although the portion was somewhat small. Prices are fairly high especially if sides are ordered. Specialty drinks are at or above Boston levels. Service was eager but amateurish. The new owners have been there about six months and it is a vast improvement over the prior ownership. As a local I will certainly return but whether the price quality relationship can fill the two dining rooms is another matter"

  • "This is our second visit to the Winsor. Our first was so nice we had to return and bring another couple. I enjoyed the baked cod on the mussels ragout, for the second time. My husband ordered the venison, which was outstanding. Our guests had a steak, and the halibut. All the food was presented and cooked perfectly. We love the coziness of the tavern (our first visit) and the warmth of the carriage house this time. What a find! This is going to be one of our regular stops."

  • "We had wonderful meals on Wednesday night! My husband's chicken was the tenderest he's ever had, and my son said his dessert was the best also! Our server was very nice and helpful. For whatever reason, though, 3 of us, got our drinks and the 4th had to wait a good 5 minutes extra for a glass of wine. All in all, we're so happy that they are bringing the restaurant back!!"

  • "This was our fifth time for dinner at the new Windsor house and it just keeps getting better. The new chef is doing a great job, service is exceptional and very friendly, and The ambience is what you want it to be - the pub for a very informal, the dining room for formal, and the Carriagehouse for somewhere in between."

  • "I went here with a friend for dinner on a Sunday night. The bar was hopping and the pub area was pretty full but there was not a soul in the dining room so we opted to sit in the pub. The menu as well as the wine list seem to be in flux and you really had to check with the server to make certain what you wanted was available. The menu itself was extremely limited and by process of elimination of the burgers, fish and chips, both my dining companion and I settled on the cod. The cod was absolutely delicious but given the limited menu I don't think I'd rush back."

  • "NEw owners have done a superb job updating this hidden gem. They ae still working out a few wrinkles with the menu. But these owners know food and there is no doubt that they will get it perfect."

  • "This was my first time back at the Winsor House since the new ownership took over, and I likely won't be going back very soon. The dining room menu isn't huge, but the prices are horrific. Appetizers were in the $17-$19 range with main courses in the $30-$35 range! These are high even for many downtown Boston restaurants. The pub menu is also extremely expensive (burgers $17, fish and chips $19). The food quality and service was great, but you can get similar quality food at many upscale places nearby on the South Shore for a lot less. Unless the new owners rethink their pricing, they're going to have a hard time making a go of the place during the winter."
    Dined on 8/22/2013
  • "Price of plate sets a expectation for level of service and the new Winsors servers need to be trained. The corn chowder was too sweet and the Oysters on the half shell had a sweet sauce too. I really was hoping for a nice grilled fish that did not have a heavy sauce. Our server basically said the chef did not want special orders. With the great reputation of the Catered Affair I had hoped for an Alma Nova service and selection but that was not the case. Hopefully some changes will be made in the near future and I will try again. And please train the service staff or lower your prices."
