A cosy and historical pub with some well-kept cask beer, often from local breweries. Atmospheric and worth visiting for a swift half.

Slightly odd pub this. Although its in a prime tourist location right next to the Cathedral, it has a distinctly local feel to it. The locals were., however, friendly enough. The location makes it a very convenient rendezvous point if you are in a group where some want to tour the pubs and others want to do some sightseeing (guess which group I was in). Although its clearly an ancient pub, the interior is not exactly olde worlde and has a, how shall we say lived in feel. Beer was Hampshire King Alfreds and Ringwood Old Thumper on cask, and two other national cask beers (I forget which) plus the usual keg lagers. There are a couple of benches outside, which doesnít really count as a patio, but a nice place to watch the world go by if the weather is good. Didnít eat. Visited in April 2005.

I used to live in Winchester but donít anymore. On two recent trips the beer quality had diminished, the food was served in smaller portions and it was more expensive. I think they are cashing in on their position almost overlooking the Cathedral. Still worth a vist if in Winchester. (4 6 5 5 12)
Situated a minutes walk from the Cathedral it is a small two room pub in an old 15th century rectory. Typical English pub decor with flaky walls, wood beams and toilets that havenít been cleaned for several years. Friendly place although if you arenít careful you can easily get dragged into a conversation/argument with the locals about religion or politics. Serves decent pub grub. Always has the same 4 real ales on tap served in reasonable condition. (4 7 8 7 15)
