Ampfield is a small village set in beautiful countryside about two miles to the East of the picturesque country town of Romsey, and about seven miles south of historic Winchester, the ancient capital of Wessex.
The River Test and its lovely valley are two miles to the north-west, and the New Forest is about eight miles to the south-west.
The village can trace its roots back to prehistory, and our History page outlines the development of the village over the years.
The countryside around Ampfield has changed little over the centuries. The countryside surrounding Ampfield and its adjacent parishes has been designated a Heritage Area, and the Heritage Area Group promotes schemes to protect and enhance it. The many public footpaths provide a pleasant way of exploring the parish.
The White Horse is situated on a slight bend in the main road that runs between Romsey and Winchester. It benefits from having a large garden that overlooks the downs and meadows of Hampshire and is next to both the village cricket ground, the recreation area and an 18 hole par 3 golf course.
Parts of the ancient building of the White Horse date back to the 16th century, and the two large Inglenook open fires bear testament to their heritage with their smoking chambers and their priest hole.
The White Horse has received a number of awards and quality marques. We are proud of these and they are your assurance that will give you an excellent service whether you are dining in celebration or just popping in for a quick drink.
