This is a back street pub for older men who like beer. There is a large selection of cask beers on offer, but little else. Some rolls, but no hot food. The place is not pretty, and is not the place you'd come for a...More

Fantastic real ale, best in Southampton. Not a keg or craft ale in sight. Good, local atmosphere with friendly staff.

This is quite possibly one of the most surprising places I've ever been to. Situated in the middle of a housing estate you'd never expect to find a properly amazing pub serving 10 real ales all of which are brilliant (I tried them all), cheap...More
