The Running Horse
Lovely food. A bit claustrophobic due to the screens which gave us little space to move but understandable. Staff were lovely and service good
Last chance for lunch before lockdown happened to fall on our Anniversary nice experience prior to 4 weeks of isolation.
Very good meal, as always. The calves liver was outstanding and chef was happy to amend the mussels sauce for us. We will miss our restaurant during lockdown -good luck to Jonny and all the staff.
I am visiting this place and it is very good standard me and my friends as well
We had a lovely meal just before lockdown. It was well organised and the service and food were very good. We would definitely return.
Menu is excellent as is quality. Staff cannot be more friendly or helpful. A delightful experience
It was our first visit and sadly it wasn’t great. We had the roast beef and the roast chicken. Quality of the beef wasnt great and the chicken was quite a small portion but cooked well. Both meals came without cauliflower cheese (although menu described this would be included), its was too late to raise the point when we realised as we were half way through the meal already. The roast potatoes were undercooked and not very crispy on the outside. Wasn’t the best roast dinner we’ve had and we left feeling dissapointed as we had heard such great reviews about this place.
The service from the staff was great though, attentive and pleasant.
The dessert - banoffe cake and banana ice cream was delicious. 10/10 and would highly recommend!!
Overall, when recommending to friends and family, we probably wouldn’t suggest sunday lunch here.
Excellent quality food, great service, would certainly recommend.
Menu choices were slightly limited and in our case the calf's liver was from a fairly old calf. Lambs liver would have been a better choice in my view and they the meat would have been as good as the rest of the meal.
Service was good and made up for the food issue above but it did put one of our number off her whe meal which was a shame.
Covid protocol good. Menu is interesting. Portions (especially fish and chips) are a reasonable size. Though no specific dietary options specified on the menu, were able to adapt one for a vegan. Though there were no dessert options for her.
Fabulous fish and chips and great pate starter plus a free glass of proseco
During our visit we never felt uncomfortable about the COVID precautions and the food and drink was excellent - although one side dish was a bit cold.
We have been here many times and not had a poor meal and the staff make every effort to ensure everyone enjoys their meal.
Beautiful food and felt COVID safe. What was not to like😊
Fantastic meal, great service from Jonny and his team.
Lovely food and staff friendly. We felt very safe with all the COVID security.
excellent as always and accommodated our young dog too, thanks we will be back!
Lovely pub, great friendly staff and fab food, couldn't find fault at all.
Excellent Sunday lunch and love the bar nibbles as well!
The food was great and the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly.
Fantastic food friendly staff. A few minor service issues(e.g missed drinks orders, delayed dessert ordering, missing item from dessert order (but delicious anyway))
An excellent menu full of variety and tempting dishes, with friendly attentive service. The food was top notch, everyone enjoyed their dishes and it was a comfy pub to while away a couple of hours!
Very well looked after from start to finish - fish pie was excellent, fish and chips good rather than great. Prosecco on the house, for our little occasion, was a lovely touch.
We were very happy with how you have managed both the quality of the food and your service in spte of the difficult circumstances
Waited a long time for main course and it was not nearly as nice as last week.
Hello, We do apologize this experience wasn't as great as previous ones, but hope you don't let that tarnish any future visits! We hope to have you back again soon and deliver a better time for you :) Kind regards, Emily, Trainee AM
We booked this restaurant as a last minuet as when we got to the premier inn on our travels we were told that the restaurant wasn’t operating for dinner and it was only ready meals.
I checked online and had the choice of here or an Indian restaurant as everywhere else was fully booked.
When we arrived at the restaurant (5 minutes early) we were told our booking hadn’t come through in time and that the kitchen had thrown the food out and they have stopped serving food. After disappearing off to the kitchen we were told we could eat but not everything was available. great we had 3 hungry kids to feed we were so grateful we didn’t get turned away.
The food was delicious, empty plates all round, What I will say though is it’s quite pricey.
Over all it’s A lovely restaurant with a country feel But a little too “posh” for me and my tribe we felt abit out of place.
Hi Amber, So happy we could accommodate you & deliver lovely food! Our menu is all priced based on the great quality of the ingredients, whilst factoring in the hardworking team behind the food & service :) Don't be silly, everyone is always welcome at The Running Horse! We hope you see you back again in the future. Kind Regards, Emily, Trainee AM
If you are in the mood for Sunday lunch out in the greater Winchester area, this is the only place to go! Outstanding food, attentive staff and a really nice, cosy setting
Thank you very much for this fab review! We can't wait to welcome you back again soon for another great Sunday roast :) Kind regards, Emily, Trainee AM
Its was an ok meal but we had a cold starter that should have been hot. Food was OK, warm not pipping hot just average which was disappointing. Ordered a white coffee and got a small amount of milk, asked for more milk they didn't have any.
We are in difficult times but the running horse was not as good as it has been.
Hi Sharon, Sorry to hear you were disappointed with your recent visit to us! We have just launched a new menu but a hot starter defiantly should've been hot so I apologize for this. As for the lack of milk, as I'm sure you can imagine we have so much wastage of items like milk/sauces etc so we do portion it pp, however normally have more on hand when asked. On this occasion we had been struggling with our deliveries so unfortunately didn't! We hope you do visit again soon!! Emily, Trainee AM
Great new menu. Really good vegetarian choices.
Hi, Glad you like the new menu! I agree the veggie options are great, even for people who aren't vegetarians to enjoy :) See you again soon! Emily, Trainee AM
We had breakfast which was well cooked, hot & presented lovely. Throughly enjoyed our meal. Staff very polite & pleasant. Like the fact that you can speak to the chefs.
Hi Chris, Glad your breakfast was great! Yes, we love the open kitchen as it is fabulous for our guests to see the chefs and have the ability to thank them or make suggestions. Hope to see you back again soon Kind regards Emily, Trainee AM
Even though we provided our contact details, they still insisted we had to use the NHS track and trace app. According to the Government, this is not mandatory, so we left - extremely poor. If that’s the shape of things to come in this country, get me out as soon as possible.
Thank you for your feedback. We suggest you visit the GOV website and read what is mandatory for ALL pubs/restaurants in the UK. Unfortunately, we all have to adapt to change. Safety here at the Running Horse is our number one priority. WE strongly advise all other guests to download the NHS TRACK & TRACE APP prior to arrival. Kind regards, Jonny General Manager
As always even in these difficult times it did not disappoint would thoroughly recommend a visit as food, service & value for money are excellent.
Hello Clare, Thank you for such a lovely review! Can't wait to welcome you back again soon. Kind regards, Emily, Trainee AM
A lovely meal which was hot, tasty & well presented.
Thank you Chris!
Very good quality of food and excellent presentation. The fish pie was outstanding! The atmosphere was very good despite the Covid19 precautions and we felt safe throughout our visit. We would highly recommend this restaurant to friends and family.
Hi Emma, Thank you so much for your kind review. We are very happy to hear you felt safe while visiting us & everything was good with your food. Can't wait to see you again soon, Kind regards Emily, Trainee AM
The Running Horse is our local. Very nice pub, good service, very covid aware, you feel you are cared for. Good for Summer evenings or cosy autumnal days.
Thanks Amanda, we are so happy you enjoy your visits with us & are pleased with the covid measures we have in place to keep everyone safe! Kind regards, Emily, Trainee AM
A very pleasant atmosphere and we enjoyed our meal very much when we came here for lunch on a Thursday.
Hi Emma, Thank you! Happy to hear you enjoyed your visit, hopefully welcome you back again soon! Kind regards, Emily, Trainee AM
Tables fairly well spaced out . Given intro with guidelines on arrival . Service prompt and enjoyable food . A good visit !
Thanks for your lovely comments & glad you had an enjoyable time with us! Kind regards, Emily, Trainee AM
Very clean and efficient , good menu and quality of food was very good. Only issue was that the deep fried food , i.e Haddock and Onion rings were very greasy. Not sure why as the rest of the food was very good. We had a nice evening and would return but probably avoid the fried items!
Hi Craig Happy you enjoyed your recent visit with us, I do apologize about the fried food. This may have just been a blip with our fryer on the day as they are not normally too greasy. I hope you informed your server on the day so as we could do our best to rectify this. Look forward to seeing you again soon! Kind Regards, Emily, Trainee AM
Good food and service. Nice atmosphere and a convenient location.
Thanks for your kind review, we are glad you had a nice time with us & hope to welcome you back again soon! Kind Regards, Emily, Trainee AM
The choices on the menu were unimpressive. Three dishes were run out on the day but staff did not tell customers while taking the order. Staff were friendly but they did not seem to have product knowledge when customers had questions regarding the menu.
Sorry to hear you didn't have a great time with us! As we are getting back on our feet from covid, we are happy to be launching our own new menu again this month, this will include a lot more choice and some of our traditional classics. Unfortunately,on busy days we do run out of certain dishes, as is expected. However your server should have explained this to you, so apologies they didn't. I assure you this isn't our usual standard & hope you give us another go. Kind Regards, Emily, Trainee AM
As we walked into the accommodation the first thing I noticed was black stains on the carpet. The room was nice enough, however, the lighting made it look a little gloomy. I also noticed a few cobwebs below the radiator in the bathroom. Outside walkway wasn’t lit enough on entry from car park. There is a step which is not well seen as the light comes on as you step onto walkway and also the rain made the walkway really slippery.
The restaurant served breakfast and the waiter was very nice, there wasn’t any muesli and when my partner asked for sugar for his rice crispies the waiter said he would have to use sugar lumps
On a positive note, the bed was really comfortable we had an excellent night sleep. The shower too was excellent.
