The Bush Inn

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 with a pint of Wadworth real ale or a chilled glass of wine from our extensive menu, 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 delicious pub 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 well-behaved dogs are also welcomed. We serve lunch and dinner every day and are open all day on Sundays. 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.
