About our venue

The Waterwitch, named after a working canal boat on the Basingstoke Canal, is a 17th Century canal-side pub, originally called the New Inn, in Odiham, Hampshire. We have an extensive garden to the rear which goes right down to the canal and if you are on a canal walk the pub is accessible via a bridge beside us. There is also a large patio area. Inside there is quite a collection of memorabilia from HMS Waterwitch which was a mine sweeper and we have even had a visit from one of the elderly gentleman who served on it! There are nooks and crannies, original features like low ceilings, real log fires, wooden beams and even an old bread oven which you can see from the fireplace in front of the bar. Quality real ales are served here. We have Cask Marque accreditation which guarantees perfection! This pub is a true destination venue. We serve restaurant style food from a very good main menu with daily Specials which include fresh fish dishes. There are 95 covers here and the service is second to none. Come and try this cosy, homely venue in the near future. You will be made very welcome.
