We were told prior to our visit to seek this pub out and we were not disappointed. Great ales (none of which we had heard of) and a really good atmosphere. Landlord and staff were very welcoming. Felt at home straightaway

When I go to see West Brom at Southampton, I always use this pub. This time we spent a few hours in there before and after the game. Really friendly staff and locals. Nice pies. Only a 15 minute walk to the football ground. Great...More
