About the Pub

Art deco building dating from the creation of Southampton Sport Centre, if you have trouble finding it, it is behind the bowling green pavilion. A magnificent curved bay overlooks the sports centre, and inside plumbing enthusiasts will find an equally curved 12 metre long radiator. Fully refurbished in 2013 and now in contemporary wine bar style, shrugging off the casual lager drinking sports bar image of old. A mixture of low tables & chairs & tables for dining with plenty of wood d├ęcor plus a function room. Flat access throughout. More buses (U6, W2) available 130m beyond nearest stops.
