Lovely food and atmosphere and open Sunday! Only one caveat: the bowl for my cassoulet did not keep the food hot long enough. More

For years, with few exceptions, we have stayed at Winchester Inn twice each year as we travel to visit family.....once going and once returning home. We have never been disappointed with our Alchemy experience. The food is delicious and served artfully. The dining room has a wonderful ambiance suitable for any special occasion. The new bar is a great addition offering a cozy and casual atmosphere. Breakfast is unique and delicious. The staff always friendly and attentive. While talking about it, I would like to add that one year, we attended their holiday Dickens Feast. It was delightful. We highly recommend Alchemy and look forward to our next visit. More
