Best pub in Winchester beer-wise. Only 2 of 3 handpumps on but both in good condition, especially the Arbor, the other was local Flowerpots. Also several keg taps serving UK and foreign beers and an interesting selection of Belgian bottles, some more unusual ones. Friendly barman keen to let you try before you buy! Free wifi. Conveniently situated on the edge of main shopping area by the station.

Visited on 09/09/12.
2 or 3 minutes walk up the ramp to the station.
Corner bar with friendly locals who were enquiring about my beer rating activities. 3 cask lines, one was from Flowerpots on my visit, the other (from memory) another Hampshire local micro.
Friendly service to the point the bar manager was asking me for reccomendations for his bottle list. Kernel were top of my picks for him and good to see that not only did he listen, but in Johnís review from February he clearly acted!
Definate place to stop for a quick one (or two) before the train if you are doing a crawl in Winchester.

A small corner pub near the railway station, recently done up - lots of scrubbed wood. Three handpubs immediately face you on entry, with some unusual ales for this part of the country; thereís also a few Belgian beers on tap and a short bottled list on a blackboard that includes Kernel. A friendly place, but prices are in line with its somewhat trendy appearance.
