Bordering the magnificent rolling chalk downland of the South Downs National Park The Bridge country pub is a welcoming haven for visitors to the historic city of Winchester just north of Shawford and those exploring the lovely Hampshire countryside.Acquiring fame as the location of the cantankerous Victor Meldrew’s hit-and-run death in the final episode of BBC comedy ‘One Foot in the Grave’ The Bridge was chosen for its picturesque setting.Visitors can savour seasonal specials on the terrace listening to the soothing sounds of the River Itchen in summer and in winter piping hot pub food can be enjoyed by the warmth of the pub’s real fires. Whatever the season relaxing Sunday lunches and delicious pub meals at The Bridge are always a treat.
