The Ship Inn is a restoration-era, wood-beamed country pub. Enjoy an ale in front of the fire in the homely, dog-friend Old Bar, and high-calibre dining in the restaurant.
A few miles outside Winchester, on the old Roman road, the pub is the heart of a village founded in the reign of Edgar the Peaceable.
Equipped with play area, pétanque pitch and horse pen. The pub is just up the road from Marwell Zoo & Activity Centre and is popular with walkers, cyclists and horse riders.
Many of our ingredients are locally-sourced from Hampshire farms.
