Built in 1681, in the reign of King Charles II, the Ship Inn, Owslebury is a country pub and modern British restaurant with a large kitchen garden.

Timbers from an old wooden sailing vessel were used in the construction, giving the pub its name. The exposed beams can still be seen in the Old Bar today, which also features a large open fireplace.

A gem in the Hampshire countryside, the kitchen has established a reputation for creative, quality, organic food, following the seasons. Ingredients that are not grown on site in the kitchen garden are sourced from local farms.

A 10 minute drive from Winchester in the South Downs National Park, the pub is just up the road from Marwell Zoo & Activity Centre.

The Pilgrims’ Trail, connecting Winchester Cathedral with Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy, crosses the village, which was itself originally part of the Bishopric of Winchester. The Monarch’s Way and South Downs Way also pass close by … and we welcome horse riders and cyclists.

We have pétanque pitches, a children’s play area and a sizeable horse pen in the gardens.
