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

Arrived a little before booking in time and in need of a beer and a sandwich - it was Sunday lunchtime. Although they were only really serving lunch they went the extra mile and rustled up a sandwich for us without any fuss. Then they helped with the luggage as my husband has a bad back. Just everything you could... More

We recently stayed in a family room at The Running Horse, we really enjoyed our stay. Not only was the room very well kept, clean and of good proportion, the service was amazing. The members of staff were very accommodating to our needs (our children are 2 and 3). The breakfast ( which is included in the price), was really... More

Just had a very pleasant two night stay. The place has a very nice and friendly feel to it. Seperate bar and dining area, good choice of local ales, with tasters readily offered As we were eating there on our first night I downloaded a sample menue which looked somewhat limited in choice although there was something for every taste....

We came upon this pub/restaurant by accident and were so glad we did, the initial reaction on entering was 'wow'! beautifully decorated combining modern and traditional, friendly welcoming staff and excellent menu choices. It was a Saturday evening, we hadn't booked but were accomadated without a problem even though the restaurant was busy. The outside eating space was also very... More
