On a wet windy Monday evening The Bush offered us a warm log fire and simply the best fish and chips ever served in a pub, friendly staff and a couple of visiting dogs to stroke...what could be better?

My wife and I used to visit the pub when we were courting in the 80’s, it was a quiet country pub with a nice atmosphere at the time. After not having visited for a number of years, much to my shame in not supporting local business, I thought to go on a trip down memory lane for lunch on... More

I love this pub and have visited on and off over the last twelve years. The setting is perfect being by the upper River Itchen, with carrier streams running through the garden. I have been lucky enough to have fished the waters here often in the past and a few yards off the river made for a wonderful way to... More

Visited on the Saturday before Christmas; menu chosen in advance, food intolerances catered for with no problems; excellent, tasty dishes, fine wines, cheerful, efficient service, very unusual to be asked if we wished to take a break between courses (we did). This is a first-rate gastro-pub in a very pleasant setting (other than the big puddles in the car-park) and... More

We ate in The Bush this afternoon after a lovely walk along the river. The service was excellent, friendly and prompt. We reserved a table before our walk as it was very busy. Our food came very quickly, all three of us ordered the fish and chips which were delicious. The dog was happy and very welcome.

We only found the pub because friends had been there before and we followed them. What a find! Roaring log fires, good food, friendly service, we didn't want to leave.

We had a works Christmas meal here and could fault nothing. The meal was hot,well presented, and very enjoyable no one had any complaints at all. It was not rushed with time in between courses to chat and enjoy ourselves, the Christmas crackers were of a good standard and not tacky all this makes for a very good evening out.... More

Friendly, cosy pub with excellent food and service and reasonable prices. This is an excellent place for lunch and there's a very pleasant walk by the river, too. Great care was taken with our special diets which is somewhat unusual!
