The Bush Inn, Ovington

Once found, never forgotten. 

Situated on the banks of the River Itchen in the picturesque village of Ovington this traditional 17th century pub is sure to give you a lasting memory whatever the season. Whether you are here in summer to enjoy the calmness and serenity of our riverside garden or snuggling up next to one of our log fires in winter, The Bush Inn wants to bring you the comfort of a home away from home.

Nestled alongside the River Itchen with the famous Pilgrim’s Way meandering alongside,The Bush Inn proves a delight for ramblers and dog walkers alike. Take a stroll along the tow path and work up an appetite before visiting us for a traditional lunch or dinner (or afterwards perhaps if you have been tempted by one of our delicious homemade puddings!). 

Whether you are visiting us for a scrumptious meal or a friendly drink children and dogs are also welcomed with you. We serve lunch and dinner every day and are open all day on Friday, Saturday and Sunday (every day in the summer holidays). Keep an eye on our website for our offers and upcoming events. We look forward to welcoming you on your first visit to us and each one after that ……
