Best shower I've ever had in a hotel, as hot as you like & very powerful. Simple menu, nice food. If you don't like your meat rare, make sure you ask for well done. Clean room decorated to good standard, friendly staff, good pub experience in nice area.

Warm and fantastic welcome from this wonderful village pub. Rooms are presented in a colour wash and quirky theme but with a quality feel to them. Very clean and with a comfortable bed; we had a good nights sleep. Dinner in the restaurant was superb with fabulous and friendly service. Food was lovely and freshly prepared with local ingredients.

This hotel has rooms in the annexe which looks like old stables. Rooms are spacious and have ample tea and coffee facilities. I also ate dinner and breakfast in the pub, which was lovely and ok priced. This hotel/pub has great decor with a country feel. When booked we wasn't expecting much and this was over and above our expectations.... More

We don't usually stay in pubs but if this one is anything to go by we will again. We were surprised when shown to a room in an annexe but it was well decorated and warm. We had two breakfasts and two evening meals and all were delightful. The biggest joy was arriving at breakfast on the second morning and... More

Lovely location and wonderful freindly staff with fantastic food . Great area to explore and visit Winchester and surrounding county. The pub has an old world charm with a warm and cosy atmosphere, would certainly return

In short we had a fantastic time, high quality and excellent value for money. The room was spacious and the bed quite luxurious. I have to mention that the shower was incredible. On arrival we were looked after - informal but that was much of the appeal. The breakfasts were excellent including kipper with poached eggs, great start to the... More

Rooms are very well finished, nice decor, fluffy towels, cafetière coffee, and comfortable bed. And breakfast was very good. Last minute booking meant a cancellation at the Running Horse was the only room in Winchester. But a lucky find. Greeted very welcomingly and pleasantly surprised at the quality of the room. Shower was good and the bed comfortable. And breakfast... More

I live locally to the pub and have done for some time now. I only had dinner there for the first time a couple of months ago but have now been back a number of times. The staff are absolutely fantastic and are extremely helpful. The venue, food and the people all have great character and it makes a great... More

We stayed 1 night, in a group with children and had 3 rooms between us. From arrival until departure the friendliness and helpfulness of all staff we encountered was superb, nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are adjacent to the pub which was nice, almost like little cottages, very nicely decorated, with a comfy bed and quiet. The pub... More
