Traditional, friendly, fun! Discover

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.

Child and dog friendly!

We are the only pub in Winchester to have a jukebox, so come on down and pick your faves! We host a monthly open mic night on the first Wednesday of each month. We also have a pool table, darts & games from jenga to scrabble

For a real delight ask about the vegan White Russian!

We are an LGBTQ friendly pub
