About the Pub

Current Photo ID is required for entry to this pub.

Large pub next to the Itchen Bridge roundabout. Starting off as the Woolston Hotel in Victorian times the pub has had a variety of names reflecting local changes but it now commemorates the long gone Hampshire Cricket Club ground that used to be behind the pub on land leased to the club by renowned 19th century cricketer Daniel Day. The large pub is now a single bar inside with a pool table, two dartboards and several TVs. The pub is a popular haunt for football fans on Southampton home match days. At the front outside are bench tables and a covered drinking area is to the side. A function room is attached to the rear of the pub.
