A pub for all seasons

The White Horse has something to offer everyone whatever the time of year. Enjoy the Summer sun in our garden or terrace, or watch the rain and snow through the window sat beside a roaring log fire.

A place to relax

The pergola covered terrace beside the restaurant is the perfect place to find some shade on a hot day. Enjoy the smell of herbaceous scents and seasonal blooms with a long cool drink.

A room with a view

Our restaurant has views out to the garden, and offers a warm welcome in the colder months and a cool retreat from the sun during the summer.  Why not book a window table and  relax as the world goes by.

Award-winning fine food, proudly made from fresh local produce

We take great pride in our food, and are amongst a select few restaurants who have been awarded the Hampshire Hospitality Award Marque for both excellence and the extensive use of locally grown produce on our menus.

Hello and welcome to the White Horse at Ampfield. From its roots as a pilgrims’ inn in the 16th century, the White Horse has been a charming, characterful pub and eating house ever since. Today we celebrate award winning home-cooking from locally sourced produce and a superb selection of drinks. Why don’t you join us!

About Ampfield

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.
