Of a four night mini road trip around Wessex, this was definitely the cleanest, friendliest and most comfortable. We decided to end our trip in Winchester to find out more about King Alfred as he was born in my home town, but reigned from here! So went on the park and ride (£2.50 for car and any passengers) and spent... More

Driving in to the property induces a feeling of relaxation which stayed throughout. From arrival to departure we were made to feel at home, with all requests met with courtesy and provision. Little touches added to a very pleasant experience. From the coffee press and oat cakes to the divine duvet that encouraged the best nights sleep. The breakfast was... More

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for the weekend and we loved it. The pub itself, which we ate in on our first night has a warm and friendly atmosphere, and the food was a cut above your normal pub grub. The rooms are a good size and really nicely decorated. We paid £105 per night, which could be seen... More

Dear Hannah C After reading your review, it is good to read the positive aspects that you enjoyed from your stay. The quality of the food that you received at breakfast is very important, as for some it is their only dining experience at the pub.

We stayed 2 nights visiting friends in the area. Simple rooms but with everything you need - good strength free wifi, clean, large room, good selection of tea / coffee etc in the room.

Rooms ok they have what you always expect in any hotel. Looks like they were once horse stables restaurant what is attached . Prices way too expensive for what you got. Breakfast there was hair in the food. So next morning didn't bother. !!

Good Afternoon I appreciate you taking the time to review your stay here at The Running Horse. The rooms are indeed different to those that you find in a traditional hotel and it is clear that they were not to your taste. We have researched the area and other pub with rooms prices and do feel that our price point... More

Lovely place to stay and eat. Very relaxed and the sun was shining in the garden when I arrived - loved the window seat in the inn more though!! Great ambience, truly wonderful food and the room was decorated with soft warming and country rustic colours and very comfy. Only gripe….the framed cartoon photo of ‘Gazza' was so very much... More

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.

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
