About the Pub

A two bar community pub in the shadows of Redbridge flyover. Built when Redbridge was a shipbuilding village and separate from Southampton, the pub was once a courthouse and is reputed to be haunted from that time; some still bear witness to inexplicable noises going on. The lounge and public bars are similarly furnished - carpeted with traditional pub furniture, the public having a pool table and a corner stage area, the lounge a trophy cabinet built into an old fireplace which the pub's cribbage team is busy filling up. There is a large garden at the back. If using public transport, use Old Redbridge Road to avoid crossing the main A33/A35/M271 Redbridge roundabout.
