OUR DOORS ARE NOW WIDE OPEN AND
WE CANNOT WAIT TO SEE YOU!
Whilst we have been away our teams have been working hard to make sure that we bring back your pub just as you know it.
As part of our social distancing promise, we currently have fewer tables available. We're very happy to welcome you whether you just pop by or book ahead of visiting, however we recommend booking to guarantee your table.
Try our new country walk to explore the beautiful countryside around our pub. Perfect if you want to build up an appetite or walk off that hearty lunch. The Bridge Inn is an idyllic riverside retreat for nature lovers and ramblers. Located in the tranquil village of Shawford beside the beautiful River Itchen – a ‘Site of Special Scientific Interest’ thanks to its array of protected species – it’s the perfect place to re-energise after a delightful ramble along the lovingly restored Itchen Navigation Heritage Trail one of the best chalk rivers for wildlife in Europe. 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.
