A traditional English pub under new management as of late 2018. A homely, welcoming house serving up smiles & delights with real ales on tap, plenty of lager cider & spirit options alongside classic pub grub (think fish & chips, lamb shanks, a range of homemade pies with veg, mash & gravy).

We also have an ever growing vegan & gluten free range including the fabulous moving mountains burger! We have changing specials and the ability to adapt to your needs.

  • Lamb shank

    Nice, traditional pub. I tried their lamb shank for lunch and it was delicious: nice quality meat, cooked to perfection, served with a tasty potato mash and cooked veg. Highly recommend it. I know for sure that every time I come to Winchester I will stop by for a lamb shank :). Thank you for the good service.

  • Cool off on a hot day

    Typical looking traditional pub and as tradition goes we came in here for a couple of pints. Great beer and friendly place. Loved it. Located on the high street.
