Firstly, the staff. We found them to be helpful, attentive and amusing. Well above the standard expected. Secondly, the food. We ate in the restaurant on two occasions and were very pleased with the menu, the food we ordered and with the way it was served. One must also say that the food and drinks were good value for money.... More

Food excellent (including breakfast), staff very obliging and helpful, room to a standard better than most and all at a reasonable price. Worth the confusing drive out of Winchester. Will definitely visit again.

Pubs in Hampshire come in different shapes and sizes. This one is exceptional. The welcome is great, food and beer excellent and above all they go the extra mile on service. Their staff are trained to make you feel welcome and it appears genuine. Great management, well done.

We needed somewhere to take a family of 5 that included people who needed smaller portions (child, senior citizens) as well as hungry adults. The Running Horse fitted these requirements totally. The food was very tasty. All five plates were eaten and plates left bare. A really great sign of tasty food. What with the Upham Beer, a totally terrific... More

We stayed in the motel style rooms attached to the pub. The rooms are beautifully decorated, and spotlessly clean with power shower. The pub serves wonderful food in its restaurant and has great staff. Breakfast was amazing, choice of hot Englishes, continental, juice, cereal etc. overall an amazing stay. They take dogs too, and B & B for only £65/... More

It was without doubt a shame...but as we are spoiled with lots... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights over New Year and had an excellent time. The room was warm and clean, the shower large with plenty of hot water and the "extras" were better than in most places we have stayed e.g. ground coffee/ mineral water etc. The pub/restaurant served delicious food and on New Years eve there...
