This is our Michelin Star restaurant of Winchester the Black Rat. I pass by it every day on the way to work, but haven't yet eaten here. The Black Rat became a restaurant in 2007 and received its Michelin star in January of this year. Parts of the building date back to around 1550 and it has been a pub since 1770. The Black Rat is a part of a little 'Black' chain within Winchester. There is a Black Boy pub and recently opened Black Bottle wine bar.
