I’d heard a lot about this venue. Inside, the decor was pleasant enough...but the drinks were expensive. My overall feeling was that it was trading on a reputation and with a degree of pretension. At the end of the day...it’s just a pub...

Loved this place - Fullers pub with decent food but small portions - can’t wait to return in the winter

We went for a couple of drinks before dinner. Lots of wines to choose from, good service and just love the inside of this pub. Glad to see they still do sausages as snacks. Never disappointed.

Kingsgate Street. From the pub, on the road travelling away from the city towards Winchester College, you can park there free for a limited time. One hour free about 500 yards away, 2 hours free from about half a mile away... More
