Very atmospheric, with quirky decor and friendly and efficient staff. I chose the burger and chips, which was all definitely home-made, full of flavour and perfectly cooked. A classic pub, keeping up its high standards.

It was actually recommended to me by a friend who studied in Winchester many years ago, and still remembers it! I would normally feel slightly shy going to a traditional pub as a woman on her own, as many of them can be full of...More

Location is excellent by the Kingsgate and Einchestet Cathedral. Ambiance is good. Food very good. Portions reasonable. I was a bit disappointed my rhubarb pie didn't have more rhubarb, but after I drew this to the server's attention I was not charged for that item....More
