About us

Ideally situated in Freefolk Priors just outside Whitchurch it is within easy reach of Basingstoke, Andover, Newbury and Winchester. The M3, A34 and A303 are easily accessed making it the perfect location to meet friends and family.

We are also situated just a stones throw away from the Home of Bombay Sapphire gin where you can go behind the doors of the famous distillery and uncover the care, skill and artistry behind every drop of the Gin.

The country style interior features oak and quarry tile flooring, wood burner and hardwood bar.

The pub dates back to the 1800s’ formerly called the Freefolk Arms, it then changed to the Jerry before becoming the Watership Down.

The Watership Down is open throughout the week serving delicious lunch and dinner every day, with the exception of Sunday and Monday evening. We offer a wide selection of local real ales and wines to complement your meal.

We also provide 7 stunning bedrooms, 6 double/twin and 1 family room. These are situated across the original Inn and in an annex in the gardens - which is brand new for 2019.
