We have spent many years visiting this part of Hampshire on pleasure and Fishing trips, and the Running Horse is without doubt the nicest Inn we have stayed at in the area. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and our twin room was extremely comfortable. The Restaurant serves top notch food at extremely reasonable prices. The only bad point... More

Stayed at the Running Horse to attend a 40th Bithday party they were hosting. Absolutely fantastic evening, freshly made canapies running all through the evening and we had dinner there before the party, that came up to the mark too as did breakfast. Super discount as well as we were attending a function there. This is very much a country... More

For a pre-Christmas short break before hectic retail season this was ideal. A mere 3 miles from Winchester centre, the pub is set in lovely quiet, rural surroundings. The bar and restaurant are cosy and the bedrooms (which are at the back of the pub) are clean and have all you need for a night (or two) stay. I particularly... More

The rooms were lovely, we had one each, my girls in one and me and Mum next door. Beautiful clean rooms, amazing shower complete with slippers and robes. My youngest has... More

We booked 2 rooms in this "pub with rooms" just outside Winchester. The superior room was just that, with walk-in rain shower, robes, slippers and the other trappings of a luxury hotel. The family room was more basic, but still large enough for 4 of us, warm and comfortable. Breakfast was good, if a little slow in coming. Food is... More
