COVID 19 (corona virus update)
Dear customers and friends
In line with the Government’s recent announcement our pubs will now be fully closed for the short term to protect lives.
To serve our local communities we had tried to keep many of our pubs open for takeaway and for the hotel users and some of our pubs even served groceries in their villages. But to protect the health and safety of our teams and our customers we will now close our business in its entirety until advised that we are able to re-open. We’re all hoping it won’t be for too long.
If you need to contact us in the meantime please use our email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to welcoming you back as soon as possible. We all wish you good health and spirits in these difficult times until we have the pleasure of welcoming you back to your local.

Our stylishly restored village inn is the perfect venue for a leisurely drink or a superb meal with family and friends, seven days a week. With 15 rooms, we’re also a perfect place to stay that’s conveniently located.
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.
“Another fantastic visit! Beautifully cooked brill on a bed of onion risotto, and the terrine, which is the second time I have had it, was perfect… seasoned perfectly. Again, lovely service and warm and friendly staff.” Seanie1984, Tripadvisor
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!
Stayed at The Running Horse as had a wedding close by. Lovely place, would highly recommend it. Food was excellent, staff were very helpful and friendly, nice atmosphere. Rooms were a good size, clean and had very comfy beds! Would recommend staying. Quiet and peaceful surroundings. Special thanks to Anita who made us feel very welcome.
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.
We are delighted to say that The Running Horse has been recognised again for its outstanding dining with award of two AA rosettes. Following a long and thorough inspection the inspectors decided that The Running Horse had again met its exacting standards. As the AA themselves say, “Those awarded two AA Rosettes are excellent restaurants, […]
Following the Government announcement, we have had to close until we are advised that we can re-open. We know how important the role of the village pub is to each community, and we kept open for as long as possible to serve you. We truly hope we can welcome you back in before too long!
We would sincerely like to thank you for your past and ongoing support and hope you and your families keep safe and well in these difficult times. We really look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back before too long.
