About The Running Horse

Our stylishly restored village pub is the perfect venue for a leisurely drink or a superb meal with family and friends, seven days a week.

Nestling in the lovely village of Littleton, just on the outskirts of the attractive city of Winchester, we’re easily accessible from junction 9 of the M3 and just 25 minutes from the New Forest National Park.

Our modern, comfortable rooms provide ideal stop-over accommodation for touring or business customers. There’s free WiFi and a large car park.

We are also happy to host private parties or business events for up to 60 people (seated) in our restaurant by prior arrangement and subject to availability.

We also have a spacious outdoor area, great for a leisurely drink and meal on a sunny day, as well as a cosy cabana where you can enjoy a quiet coffee or your favourite tipple.

The Running Horse is part of the Upham Group, which also owns Upham Brewery where we brew our superb stable of real ales, as well several other great local pubs.

Don't just take our word for it

Lovely pub with separate rooms and delicious food. I came up to Winchester with my Mum and daughters to have some retail therapy at the Christmas market. The rooms were lovely, we had one each, my girls in one and me and Mum next door. Beautiful clean rooms, amazing shower complete with slippers and robes.
My youngest has severe food allergies and the manager Anita and Chef Stuart were extremely helpful in catering for her, from initial emails to meeting and chatting with him there, resulting in delicious steak and mashed potato, followed by home-made ice cream.
All the staff were very friendly and helpful, but our especial thanks to Anita and Stuart xx. We will be back!

We stayed for 4 nights and everything was perfect, the staff were very accommodating, the rooms were beautiful and everything was just lovely. Can't express how much I liked this place. I live in London but I'm thinking of going back again. Lovely pub, excellent stay!

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.

We visited for a long weekend over the Easter holiday. We chose the Running Horse as it was convenient for the places we were visiting. Can't speak highly enough of this pub/hotel. Rooms are spacious and comfortable - lovely comfy bed - very clean. Staff are excellent and the food was extremely good. Breakfast was tasty and a great start to the day. We ate twice for evening meals. The Fish and Chips very nice but my American wife says the burger is the best she's had in the UK. So nice we decided to stay an extra night.
