Had an enjoyable visit in December 2016, the place has a country oub feel. Good range of cask & keg. Prices reasonable, staff are friendly. The food was excellent, large portions a & delicious although not particularly cheap.
Visited 2 July 2017. Charged £2.25 for a half of a 4.4% ABV Broken Bridge cask beer, which may not be my most expensive of 2017, but was certainly the warmest. Service perfunctory and not a pub I would bother visiting again.
Visited on 8th August 2014. Large pub with a patio out front. Looks quite a rockers pub from the outside but inside it is large, focus on food and good beer. Small but good range of cask beers plus a reasonable bottle list.
Service decent, prices OK. Not a bad place to visit but better places around
My definitively favorite pub in Southampton. Wide range of cask ale in combination with a rather big and interesting bottle selection. Good burgers, friendly staff and authentic atmosphere. Like a local country pub in the middle of town.
A more modern take on a traditional English pub, attracting a younger crowd. The beer selection isn’t grand and the few we had were off. If you are bored this can be an interesting pit stop on the way to/from the Guide Dog, which is really where you want to be.
This is definitely a favorite local, the selection of beers is great especially when they hold beer/ale/cider festivals. Service does struggle at times in consistency with newer/PT staff. With the food/drink/ambiance it’s a place I could comfortably spend most of my wages at on a sunday (and I have done).
This place seems to be trying too hard to be a perfect pub - it’s almost like being on a film set - still , people seem to like it that way, as it was crowded on a Wednesday evening. The real ale selection was reasonable, and mainly local, and well kept. The staff were struggling to cope with the crowd so service wasn’t good. WOrth a look in, as it’s just around the corner from the Guide Dog, but not worth a special trip.
Four well-kept cask ales in a good nick and a decent selection of bottles and spirits. Reasonably priced and tasty food menu, very friendly staff and smart decor. Much better than its previous incarnation as the Bevois Caslte.
Previously known as the Beviois Castle, this place has now been refurbished, has a new name and is under new management. The new management seem to be more interested in selling high quality products, whether it be food or drink. I went to a small beer festival here and they had lots of beers from Sadler’s as well as Slater’s, so perhaps they have some connection to those breweries as it’s unusual to see those beers in Southampton.
