Welcome to our most glorious traditional pub, The Otter in Otterbourne

With original features and bags of character this 300 year old public house has been under the loving care of the Knott family for over 20 years.


Perfectly situated overlooking the green in the pretty Hampshire village of Otterbourne, we are 5 miles from the historic City of Winchester and less than a mile from the M3. Being within 15 minutes walk of the Itchen Way we are an ideal stopping point for refreshments and lunch before rambling on…


We believe in great beer, fantastic food and warm service and look forward to welcoming you to our home very soon.



We have the opinion that food should be honest and cooked from the heart and we hope that when you eat with us you wil discover that this is what we do best.


We aim to source our ingredients locally whenever possible using such suppliers as Owtons of Chalcroft Farm, L.J Smith (Family Butcher) of Bishopstoke and the Hampshire Farmers Market in Winchester.


Our blackboard menu changes daily, reflecting seasonal produce, supplier recommendations and the great British weather!


If there is something special that we can prepare for you please let us know in advance and we will do our upmost to provide it for you.


We offer a bespoke childrens menu but please be aware that we do not have any facilities such as high chairs or baby changing. You are welcome to bring your own high chairs with prior arrangement.




We offer an extensive choice of liquid refreshment including 5 real ales with regular guest ale appearances accredited by the Good Pub Guide and Cask Marque.


A continental draught lagers include Peroni Nastro Azzuro and Pilsner Urquell and draught ciders include Aspall and the sublime Thatchers Gold.


Our bar stock changes with the seasons. Through the autumn and winter our range of whisky is increased featuring malts from around the World including Ichiro and the award winning Hibiki from Japan. Through the summer our range of bottled ciders and gins increase featuring The Lake District Distillery and Williams Chase. With homemade mulled wine at Christmas and fruitful Pimms when the sun is shining we promise to quench the thirstiest of palettes.


If you become a regular guest with us please speak to Dave and he will endeavor to stock your favourite tipple wherever possible.
