The first few trips around Winchester can get very confusing when searching for a good restaurant. Most of you may know Sheetz, across from campus on Millwood Ave., but how about what else is in the area? Luckily, I can help you out with some suggestions of my favorite places.
If you want a taste of the town along the Old Town Walking Mall, you will find a variety
of restaurants ranging from Thai to burgers to Italian. There is Brewbakers Restaurant, Snow White Grill, Thai Winchester, Patsy’s Pastry Pizzas, Succilee’s House of Thai Restaurant and many more! And keep in mind, Snow White grill takes flex dollars.
For sushi and Thai food, I suggest going to Succilee’s House of Thai on 21 E. Boscowan St. The sushi is fantastic and the Thai food is delicious. Price-wise the menu is very reasonable and well worth it.
Burgers, sandwiches and salads are on the menu at practically every restaurant, but have you ever had any of them at Brewbakers Restaurant? Brewbakers has a delicious menu. The burgers there are a favorite of mine, and I recommend the turtle burger — it’s their specialty. But pick what you want, all of it is top notch!
Personally, these are my favorite places to go downtown, but there are so many other good places.
For those of you who are 21 or older, there is a very active bar scene. But, even if you’re not 21, you can still have a good time down there. One particularly popular bar is the historic Piccadilly’s Public House & Restaurant on the corner of Piccadilly and Kent Street.
There is an older crowd there on some nights, but its still one of the best bar in my eyes. You need a good bartender to make sure you have the perfect amount of liquor in preferred beverage.
All of the bartenders at Piccadilly’s are top notch at making sure you have your perfect drink in your hand at any given point. For me, they know how to get my Gin and Tonic perfected every time.
On Thursday nights, Piccadilly’s offers a special on bottled beer. You can get five bottles of Corona or a domestic beer for a cheap price — it’s better than buying bottle for bottle.
Winchester has developed some great little hot spots so you can make a celebration of any night. Call it a birthday, getting an A on a test or just a normal day of the week, go out and taste the town!
