About the Pub

Set in a residential side road in Bevois Valley, the pub is a genuine free house carrying a wide range of real ales from local and national breweries, all served from handpumps. New owners took over in August 2015, giving the pub a refurbishment and opened a new back room, known as the 'Dog House', along with a patio space. Both are compact but make imaginative use of the space. Currently there are 11 hand pumps and a range of bottled beers behind the bar. The cellar has been completely re-fitted, and the beer quality across this wide range is very good indeed. A curry night is held on Thursdays and pies are regularly sold on SFC home match days. The Landlord plans to introduce pub meals and two bed and breakfast rooms in the future. The pub has a number of awards and was voted Southern Hampshire CAMRA Pub of the Year 2018, adding to many past awards.
